'Big Bang Theory' Stars Sign New Deals, Get Huge Pay Raise


Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have reportedly agreed to new three-year contracts that will give them $1 million per episode.

"The Big Bang Theory" fans can now breathe a sigh of relief for their favorite stars will return for at least three more seasons of the show. Following lengthy negotiations, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have now signed new three-year contracts.

Deadline reports that under the new deals, the three stars get the hefty pay raise that they demanded. They will earn $1 million per episode, almost three times more than their current earnings of $350,000 per episode. They'll also receive a bigger cut of the show's lucrative syndication earnings on TBS.

However, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg, who are also seeking pay raise and negotiating together, have not signed new contracts but an agreement is expected to be reached this week. Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, meanwhile, inked new deals that gave them substantial salary increases last year.

Production for the upcoming season 8 of the hit CBS sitcom had been postponed due to the contract dispute. Filming is now set to begin Wednesday, August 6.

The new season of "The Big Bang Theory" will premiere Monday, September 22 at 8 P.M. with an hour-long episode.
