How much did he get from the show?

So how much was the actor paid while performing as Spencer Reid? Due to the success of the show, he managed to get six figures when it was at its peak.

In 2012, it was announced that he would receive $100,000 for each episode. This was a nice pay raise, and it allowed the actor to make a lot of money from the show. He would later get another raise, meaning his earnings for each episode rose to $150,000.

It is important to note that the money does not include the money he received from the syndication. This meant he made a lot more of the episodes that aired multiple times.
