If you can't imagine Modern Family without its young stars, the good news is you don't have to — Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez have all signed contracts to stay on through Season 10. Even better news? The talented "kids" negotiated a deal for an impressive pay bump, according to Deadline.
Hyland, Winter, Gould and Rodriguez — who play the Dunphy kids (Haley, Luke and Alex) and Manny Delgado, respectively — have grown up before viewers' eyes as the lovable offspring on the award-winning ABC comedy.
As the original kids on the hit series, the group reportedly endured lengthy on-and-off negotiations with the network to secure their new salaries and lock them in for two more seasons.
The negotiations came on the heels of re-ups for Modern Family's parents: Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, Sofía Vergara and Eric Stonestreet. Prior to signing new contracts through Season 10, the main six earned around $350,000 an episode, per Deadline. With the new contracts, they will each earn about $500,000 per episode, an increase of more than 40 percent.
And if you're worried about the other kid cast members, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons and Jeremy Maguire (who play Lily Tucker-Pritchett and Joe Pritchett, respectively), don't. Although the pint-size stars are "still under their original deals since they joined the show later," they will likely also receive raises in the future.
As for Hyland, Winter, Gould and Rodriguez — who are grown-ups in their own right after eight seasons in the spotlight — their sweet new deals will have them earning around $2.2 million each per season if the seasons are the same length as Season 8.
It's a smart move on ABC's part to keep its next generation of talented stars happy... not to mention fans of the show.
