The eighth season of Modern Family wrapped production last Friday, but sources are reporting that the the ABC comedy could face delays leading into its ninth and (maybe) final season. Contract negotiations haven't yet begun with the show's adult cast, but pay has been a contentious issue for the series before, and we're sure that neither the actors nor production team want a repeat of that performance.
"In the case of Modern Family, that price tag is hefty, thanks in large part to the already-rich salaries being paid to the award-winning ensemble," notes THR. "In its eighth season, which is now airing, the stars of Steve Levitan (who is directing the season finale) and Christopher Lloyd’s hit half-hour are said to be making roughly $350,000 per episode as well as getting a cut of the series’ profits. They will no doubt demand considerably more to continue."
