The stars of NBC’s feel-good drama This Is Us have something to feel very good about this week: $250,000.

Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, and their costars received a hefty bonus check from the network and 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the show, EW has confirmed. The gift was a thank-you for the extraordinary performance of the series to date and a symbol of goodwill for when the actors renegotiate their contracts.

There was much to be thankful for after the family dramedy’s first season. This Is Us was last season’s top-rated new series and No. 1 drama in the 18-to-49 demo. It wasn’t just a ratings success; the show earned 10 Emmy nominations and became the first Big Four drama nominated for an Outstanding Drama Series Emmy in six years.
