20th Century Fox TV and the show’s voice actors are currently in contract negotiations, though it appears that no agreement has been – or will be – made.

The studio is reportedly threatening to axe the show if the leading voice actors, who each earn approximately $8 million a year, do not agree to cut their paychecks by 45%.

“We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model,” 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement released Tuesday.
