The ‘This Is Us’ Cast Salaries Just Made Us Gasp

It’s that time of year again. Fall TV is in full effect and one of our favorite shows is set to return with brand new episodes. The This Is Us Season 4 cast salaries are so astronomical that we are hardly able to deal. In fact, if you look at the salaries from Season 1 until now, the cast has one of the largest salaries in TV history.

When we were first introduced to the Pearsons back in 2016–only Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia who play Rebecca and Jack Pearson respectively were household names. The rest of the clan including, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chrissy Metz had worked in Hollywood previously, but in much smaller roles. As a result, when the actors were first hired to appear on the series that would dazzle America–they were making relatively modest salaries.

A lot has changed since then. Following the iconic first season of This Is Us–the salaries for all of the actors jumped drastically per episode. It more than doubled for Moore and Ventimiglia and it brought the rest of the actors to parity. In Season 3–the actors of This Is Us racked in the dough and with a salary negotiation for Season 4, we expect the numbers are even higher now.

Net worth: $12 million

Milo Ventimiglia portrays Vietnam vet and patriarch Jackson Pearson on This is Us. When he initially signed on for Season 1, Variety reported that he was making $85,000 per episode. A veteran in Hollywood, we’ve been obsessed with Milo since he played Jess on Gilmore Girls. Once This Is Us took off, The Hollywood Reporter reported that he negotiated his salary to $250,000 per episode for Season 3. This means he made about $4.5 million last season and is poised to make more during Season 4. This year, he also starred in the family film, The Art of Racing in the Rain which added to his $12 million net worth.

Mandy Moore

Like Milo, Mandy Moore was super well known before This Is Us. With a career as a teen pop-star under her belt, and her roles in movies like A Walk to Remember and The Princess Diaries, Mandy was the perfect choice for matriarch Rebecca Pearson. Like Milo, after Season 1, she had her salary raised from $85,000 to $250,000 per episode. In 2019 she continued to voice Rapunzel in Disney’s Tangled: The Series and she’s slaying beauty campaigns like Garnier and Neutrogena. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mandy’s net worth is $10 million. With new music on the way, we’re excited to see that Mandy has fully returned to the spotlight.

When it comes to Susan Kelechi Watson who stars as Beth Pearson and Chris Sullivan who plays Kate’s husband, Toby–their salaries have not been reported, but we can’t imagine they are too far behind the core cast.
