Stars of the HBO hit show “Westworld” cashed in with some major raises.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the lead cast of Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Thandie Newton will all make $250,000 an episode in the third season. That’s a major bump up from their old salaries, which were between $100,000 and $150,000.

You know HBO means business when they’re giving the core of the cast a combined million dollars an episode. At this point, it makes perfect sense. The sci-fi western is a massive hit. For example, it’s one of the things we talk about on a regular basis at the office. (RELATED: THE ‘WESTWORLD’ SEASON TWO FINALE WAS AN EPIC BLOODBATH)

Every Monday morning, we debate all our theories, which I must say have turned out to be surprisingly accurate. Props to me for calling William as the Man in Black in the second episode of the first season.

I can’t wait to see what we get in the third season. I have a feeling it’s going to be absolutely epic. The fact that Ed Harris is getting the big payday lets us all know he’ll be back in a major way. That was one of the major questions after season two.

The third season of “Westworld” is expected to show up at some point in late 2019. You know I’ll be watching.
