‘This Is Us’ Cast Gets 7-Figure Bonuses Ahead Of Final Season



The main adult cast sought pay raises this past summer, heading into the upcoming sixth and final season.
The request was initially met with resistance by 20th Television and NBC.
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman stepped in to back the actors in their quest for more money.

They agreed to a $2 million cash bonus for each of the seven original cast members and a $1 million bonus for fellow series regular Huertas.

The original cast members joined Huertas in requesting parity for him, lobbying with the studio and network for his bonus to match theirs. The effort was unsuccessful. The Original 7 offered to pool together a portion of their own bonuses and give it to Huertas so he could achieve parity with them.
