(Newser) – Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, and Phoebe haven't been up to new adventures since 2004, but their older ones are still making a ton of money for the cast. In an interesting look at the show's money-making prowess, Marketplace reports that each cast member makes $20 million per year thanks to syndication. That's good news for David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow, who formed what Marketplace calls a "mini-union" after the second season and insisted they all be paid the same. They might even make more in the near future, now that the show will remain on Netflix through 2019, notes Business Insider. (Perry says he can't remember season three.)
