The stars of A&E hit “Duck Dynasty” are shooting for more money.

The Robertson family, which anchors in the series, are looking for a big pay raise before production starts on a new season of the hit show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Because of the standoff, the channel is holding off on renewing the show for a fourth season.

According to the report, sources close to the negotiation state that the family is looking to get more than $200,000 an episode from A&E and production company Gurney Productions in order to come back for another go around.

The Huffington Post writes that series producer Deirdre Gurney said that the show’s stars would get their raises, but there are a “lot of factors at play.”
