The seven original main cast members of “This Is Us” have received $2 million cash bonuses ahead of the NBC drama’s sixth and final season, TheWrap has learned.
That list includes Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, whom are all pictured above.
Meanwhile, series regular Jon Huertas (who plays Miguel, Jack Pearson’s best friend and Rebecca Pearson’s now-husband) has been given a $1 million bonus, despite his fellow cast members and creator Dan Fogelman’s efforts to get studio 20th Television to agree to parity in the final-season bonuses given to all the stars.
NBC, 20th Television and a representative for Huertas did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Deadline first reported the news of the “This Is Us” cast’s bonuses.
