ABC’s Modern Family will be airing its final episode next Wednesday. After 11 years, the show is coming to an end and many people are looking back on the show. In many ways, viewers watched the children in the show growing up and each of the adult cast members evolving in other ways. What you may not have considered is how much each member of the family made per episode. Here’s a look at the net worth of the cast of Modern Family.

What’s the Net Worth of the Cast of Modern Family?

Before we take a look at the net worth of the cast, you should know each of them earned money elsewhere too. However, during their time on the show, each cast member made anywhere between $100,000 to $500,000 per episode (detailed below). So, it stands to say Modern Family had an impact on each of their net worths.

Ed O’Neill got his start long before Modern Family ever aired on television. You may recognize him from the 90s sitcom Married with Children. He has also played roles in several other television shows. For each episode he appeared in during the eleventh and final season of Modern Family, O’Neill earned $500,000. With earnings per episode that high, it is safe to say Modern Family contributed quite a bit to his $65 million net worth.

Sofia Vergara (Gloria Delgado-Pritchett)

Like her on-screen partner, Sofia Vergara also made $500,000 per episode during the series’ final season. She is also the most wealthy cast member on the show with a net worth of $160 million. In addition to her work on the show, Vergara has also done work as a model. One of her most popular campaigns was with Pepsi Co. She also has her own clothing line, which helps increase her annual earnings.

Among other key players in the show is Julie Bowen, who plays the maternal figure of the Dunphy clan. During the final season, she also made $500,000 per episode. On top of her role on Modern Family, Bowen has also landed a number of other small TV and film roles, including the role of Aunt Gwen on Dawson’s Creek. This has led to her accruing a net worth of $18 million over the years.

Ty Burell plays Bowen’s hubby on the sitcom but that is far from his only role. Burell has also performed standup, played roles in Comedy Central shows, and has also landed roles in movies as well. Like the others mentioned above, Burell also banked $500,000 per episode in the final season, which has definitely contributed to his $26 million net worth.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell Tucker-Pritchett)

Jesse Tyler Ferguson plays the roles of Mitchell Pritchett on Modern Family. That’s far from being his only career role though. Much of his career has actually centered around off-Broadway stage shows. Like his fellow cast members, he also earned $500,000 per episode in the 11th season. There is no doubt his role as Mitchell has had an impact on his $20 million net worth.

Eric Stonestreet (Cameron Tucker-Pritchett)

Eric Stonestreet plays Ferguson’s partner in the show and also banked $500,000 per episode in the final season. In addition to his role on Modern Family, Stonestreet has appeared on CSI, Bones, and NCIS. Not to mention, he has also landed roles on the big screen in films like The Secret Life of Pets and Bad Teacher. He’s worth just a touch more than Ferguson at $23 million.

How Much Are The Kids Worth?

Those figures only cover the adult characters on the show. However, there are a number of kids viewers watched grow up on the show. Undoubtedly, they earned a bit less, but they are all starting to work elsewhere and make more cash though. Here’s how much each of the younger casts members is worth…

Sarah Hyland plays the oldest Dunphy child but that’s far from her only role on television. She got a late start to her career at the age of 28, but she was able to really stabilize her finances with her role on Modern Family. It is estimated that Hyland is worth approximately $14 million, much of which she earned on the show, even though she only earned around $100,000+ per episode.

Reid Ewing plays Hyland’s husband in the final season. The pair encountered an unexpected pregnancy during season 10 and the 11th season looks at them as new parents. Ewing has been on and off the show throughout the 10 years it has been on the air. He wasn’t a regular cast member until later in the series though and hasn’t been really active elsewhere, so his net worth only sits around $2 million.

Ariel Winter is the middle Dunphy child on Modern Family. Her role as the witty genius on the show earned her up to $120,000 per episode in the final season. She’s played some small television roles as well as provided voice over for animated films. All of her work together has helped her reach an estimated net worth of about $12 million.

Rico Rodriguez has been another character Modern Family fans have watched grow up over the years. He earned around $125,000 per episode in the final season and has appeared on every single episode of the show there’s ever been. In addition to his work on the show, he has also published a book called Reel Life Lessons. All of this has led to his accruing a $12 million net worth.

Jeremy Maguire (Joe Pritchett)

Jeremy Maguire is the youngest Modern Family cast member. While he doesn’t have any new work lined up right now, he has been able to accrue a net worth of $150,000 from his work on the show. For a seven-year-old boy, that’s pretty great! It will be interesting to see what work Maguire does in the future and how it impacts his wealth as a child actor.

Aubrey Anderson-Emmons is the second-youngest actor on the show. Like Maguire, she has pretty much grown up on the show. Although she hasn’t worked elsewhere in Hollywood, she has been able to accrue a net worth of $6 million (not bad for an 11-year-old). You can find her and her parents sharing videos on Instagram pretty regularly, where she does earn a little extra with endorsement deals.

When you tally up the net worth of the cast of Modern Family it comes out to $358,150,000. Together, they hold an amazing amount of wealth!
