"Mad Men" Supporting Characters Reach Deals Carrying Them through the End of the Series

Posted Saturday August 4, 2012 1:13 PM GMT

Though the ladies may play second fiddle to the macho ad execs of "Mad Men," two of the female stars (and Vincent Kartheiser) just nabbed significant pay raises.

Elizabeth Moss, who plays Peggy Olsen; January Jones, who plays Betty Francis; and Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell reached agreements with Lionsgate taking them through the final two seasons for the hit series. Deadline.com reports that the trio will be receiving bumps "well into six figures per episode."

Reportedly, Christina Hendricks will receive a similar hike, but her deal is still in the works. Neither of the deals even approach leading man Jon Hamm's salary, which is valued at more than $10 million.

The penultimate season six of the AMC show begins filming in October.
