The cast of Southern Charm has reportedly been given huge salary raises ahead of production on their upcoming seventh season, which is expected to begin production in January following a months-long filming delay.
According to a new report, the series’ returning stars will be making substantially more for their work on the new episodes than they did during season six, especially the top four cast members of the show, who will all be making thousands of dollars more for each episode.
The four stars were previously making $400,000 for each season, which brings their total raise to $80,000 a piece.
“Season 7 is a do or die season for the show, they have to deliver,” the source said the cast was told. “Without Thomas they need the drama to come back… They have to deliver.”
For the past several weeks, the Southern Charm production team has reportedly been on the hunt for new faces in hopes of making up for the lack of drama the series has experienced since Thomas was let go from the show last summer.
In addition to the raises of the series’ top stars, other members of the show also received salary boosts. This includes Eliza Limehouse, who was given a raise to $2,500 per episode for a total of $40,000 for season seven, and Austen Kroll, who will be making $5,000 per episode for a total of $80,000.
