A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

The network has renewed Modern Family for a ninth and tenth season, EW has learned. Similar to seasons 7 and 8, seasons 9 and 10 will each consist of 22 episodes.

‘Modern Family’ Renewed for Two Seasons by ABC

10 May 2017 3:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After a little behind-the-scenes drama, “Modern Family” has been renewed for two more seasons by ABC.

The long-running 20th Century Fox Television comedy’s season-eight finale is scheduled to air May 17. The renewal signals a conclusion to lengthy negotiations with the show’s adult cast members, whose contracts expire at the end of the current season.

Sources tell Variety that most of the show’s core cast members — Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Ty Burrell — will see their paychecks rise to nearly $500,000 per episode for the next two seasons, up from about $350,000 under their previous contracts. Ed O’Neill has in the past commanded a higher fee as he has since the series premiere. O’Neill also has a bigger profit participation stake than his co-stars given his higher profile at the time the series bowed in 2009.

The other five actors earned small profit-participation stakes in the show during the previous contract »

Jason Momoa will show Just Cause in a movie adaptation of the video game series

8 March 2017 5:04 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Video Game movie adaptations have often been hit and miss affairs. For every Silent Hill there are a hundred Super Mario Bros. Even the Resident Evil game series, borne out a love of B-movie horror, has had huge problems making the transition to the big screen. However, with Alicia Vikander as our new Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and a forthcoming movie based on the Uncharted games it seems the adaptation train will keep on rolling. There’s a new name in town today, as reports are coming in that Jason Momoa will lead a film based on Avalanche and Square Enix’s Just Cause series.

A movie adaptation of the series was always on the cards. There’s a scant plot to propel lead character Rico Rodriguez through his various one-man revolutions. Each game (there have been three so far) features Rodriguez overthrowing a regime in a sun-drenched destination. »
