LOS ANGELES (AP) - The stars of "Modern Family" have reached new deals for the hit comedy, ending a dispute that threatened to spill over into a courtroom.
A 20th Century Fox spokesman confirmed Friday evening that the new deals had been reached and shooting on the ABC series' fourth season will begin Monday.
The deals cover stars Sofia Vergara, Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Five of the actors sued Fox on Tuesday asking a judge to rule their contracts on the Emmy-winning show were illegal and should be invalidated.
O'Neill joined the case later in the week.
The deal, exact terms of which were not released, means the lawsuit will be dropped.
The show was recently nominated for 14 Emmy Awards, the most of any sitcom.
