Production of 'Big Bang Theory' Delayed due to Contract Dispute


The show's actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, who currently earn $325,000 per episode, are seeking up to $1 million per show.

The production of "The Big Bang Theory" has been delayed due to a contract dispute with some of its stars. The news was announced by Warner Bros. TV on Wednesday, July 30, the same day the actors were scheduled to return from their summer hiatus for a table reading of the first episode for the show's eighth season.

"Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on 'The Big Bang Theory' - which was originally scheduled to begin today - has been postponed," the studio said in a statement. There's still no word on when the show will resume its production.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco currently earn $325,000 per episode. They are now seeking up to $1 million per show. Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are also seeking pay bumps. The two reportedly earn $125,000 and $75,000 per episode, respectively.

Fans are hoping the dispute won't affect the timing of the show's season premiere on September 22.
