Michael Rainey Jr: Net Worth, Salary, Earnings 2022
When he first began his prominent role in the TV series Power, his salary per episode was $20,000. At the beginning of 2018, he received a $25,000 increase and began earning $45,000 for every episode. Today, his net worth is estimated to be $1.2 million.
While the actor often posts his mother on his social media pages, he does not do the same for his father. However, in an interview with Vibe Magazine, the actor alluded to the fact that, like his on-screen character Tariq, he does not have an easy relationship with his father.
According to Express, Rainey is now being paid double for the first season of Ghost than his previous salary on Power which we assume is at least $100,000 per episode. Variety reports that cable networks pay their leads anywhere between $150,000 to $1,000,000 per episode for a show.
Michael Rainey Jr in real life has no twin, however, in the famous Power series, Raina St. Patrick was the twin of Michael Rainey Jr.
It was reported that Rainey was earning $20,000 per episode for the very first season of Power. Since he had increased responsibilities and screen time in the final seasons of Power we’re certain that his salary was much higher for the finals season.
In 2018, it was reported that he was earning $45,000 per episode. Now that he’s the lead in Power Book II: Ghost we assume that he’s making upward of $100,000 per episode in 2022.
