LOS ANGELES: "Modern Family" young stars Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez have been locked in for two more seasons with new contracts that include salary increase.

The older co-stars secured salary increases of over 40 per cent, from about $350,000 an episode in the most recent Season 8 to about $500,000 in Season 9. 

According to deadline.com, the young actors scored significant pay increases that takes them over $100,000 an episode.
