Duck Dynasty's cast, which is comprised of nine adults and 11 children, will earn more than $200,000 an episode under the new deal, Deadline Hollywood reported.

The payday increase is allegedly about four to five times more than what the Robertson clan had previously been racking in.

In addition, the cast reportedly agreed to film an unspecified number of Duck Dynasty seasons beyond its fourth edition, which premieres tonight.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the Robertson clan began their lengthy talks with A&E in early 2013 and the conversations were ongoing during the fourth season's production.

A&E and William Morris Endeavor, the talent agency which represents the Robertson clan, both declined comment on the matter.

Duck Dynasty's third-season finale ranked as the network's most watched telecast in history, drawing in 9.6 million total viewers. The show has received so much public attention that one of its stars, Willie Robertson, is reportedly even being eyed for a congressional seat.
