The cast of A&E series Duck Dynasty is demanding a significant salary raise to more than $200,000 per episode, to continue for a fourth season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The bearded men of the Robertson family, who own a Duck Commander business, are reportedly negotiating with the network to have a raise for season 4 and additional increases for the following seasons, a source close to the negotiations told THR. The dispute has slowed the network to renew the show but producers re-affirmed fans of the series today that they do plan to renew the show.

"It's going to get done, but there are a lot of factors at play," Duck Dynasty producer Dierdre Gurney said on Wednesday at the Hollywood Radio & Television Society luncheon, according to the report.

Duck Dynasty has had tremendous success in ratings and is A&E's most popular show and the most watched reality show on cable on its Wednesday night slot.

The show broke a record during it's season 3 premiere attracting a viewership of 8.6 million people with five million viewers in the key advertising demographic between 18 to 49-years-old, which made it A&E's most-watched show ever.

A&E's popular reality show follows the life of the Robertson family in Louisiana and its business selling duck calls, decoys and other hunting paraphernalia.

Starring in the show are the family members who run the company: business-savvy Willie, who runs Duck Commander and his brother Jase, their respective wives Korie and Missy, patriarch and founder of the company, Phil, and uncle Si.
