How much?

In 2014, the main cast reportedly renegotiated for $300,000 an episode in exchange for signing on for Season 7. Since history seems to be repeating itself, this new renegotiation could signal a green-light for Season 8. Exciting, but LORD KNOWS how many of our faves will be dead by then.
