Modern Family cast matesÂ Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O’Neill, Eric StonestreetÂ andÂ Sofia Vergara have settled their contract negotiations and will soon be back to filming their new season.
The six actors have dropped the lawsuit they filed on July 24 that claimed their “current contracts were a violation of a California law that prohibits personal service contracts from exceeding seven years.”
A source close to the contract negotiations said the group also earned a pay raise. Instead of the $65,000 they were making per episode, they’ll be making closer toÂ $170,000-$175,000 (including bonuses) per episode for the upcoming 22-episode season.
“It’s no surprise, but I’m of course thrilled and I cannot wait to get on stage Monday morning and start making the show again,” co-creatorÂ Steve LevitanÂ toldÂ The Hollywood Reporter.
