The key supporting cast of Bones has come into big money.
Michaela Conlin (Angela Montenegro), T.J. Thyne (Dr. Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Dr. Saroyan) and John Francis Daley (Dr. Sweets) have closed new deals to remain on the long-running Fox detective series should it score an expected eighth season order.

The four actors, who were making in the $30,000 to $40,000 per episode range heading into their negotiations with studio 20th Century Fox TV, received pay bumps that brought them each to the mid-five figures per episode in exchange for an additional season on their contract, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter. 20th TV declined comment.
For Conlin and Thyne, who are both original castmembers, season seven was the last on their contract.

The raises are retroactive and will count towards the show’s seventh season, which has been scaled back some to accomodate star Emily Deschanel‘s pregnancy. For her part, Deschanel and her co-star David Boreanaz have already renegotiated their contracts. TV Guide Magazine pegged his salary at $200,000 per episode, while she is said to make slightly less than that.
At the Television Critics’ Association semi-annual press tour in July, Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly said that they hadn’t had any formal discussions about renewing Bones yet, but “the producer would like to keep it going; and we’d like to keep it going.”
