The cast of Game of Thrones has signed on for a potential seventh season of the popular HBO series, and the actors renegotiated their contracts to include hefty pay bumps, according to a new report.

Although HBO has yet to greenlight the seventh season—George R. R. Martin has only written five of what is supposed to be a seven-book series on which the show is based—the actors had previously only been locked down through season six. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story of the raises.

While details of the new contracts are sparse, THR reports that new compensation will be based on a tier system:

The “A” tier — which includes actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) — is paid at the highest level. The “A” tier actors are said to have renegotiated their deals in tandem.

The show finished its fourth season this summer.
