'Big Bang Theory': Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg Sign New Deals, Production Will Resume


'Production on season 8 of 'The Big Bang Theory' will begin Wednesday, August 6, with contract negotiations now having been concluded,' Warner Bros TV announces.

"The Big Bang Theory" will be back full force. A day after Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco closed new deals, supporting stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar have signed new three-year deals as well.

The five original stars were previously in contract dispute with series producer Warner Bros TV as the actors demanded pay raises. Helberg and Nayyar have reportedly secured sizable raises from their $100,000 per episode contract, though they won't be making as much as the three lead actors who will reportedly earn $1 million per episode now.

Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik, meanwhile, renegotiated their contracts last fall and got substantial salary increases.

Now that all main cast members have new contracts, production for the upcoming eighth season of the hit sitcom which had been delayed is set to resume soon. "Production on season eight of 'The Big Bang Theory' will begin Wednesday, August 6, with contract negotiations now having been concluded," WBTV said in a statement Tuesday.

"Big Bang Theory" will return with the new season Monday, September 22 at 8 P.M. on CBS with an hour-long episode before moving to its regular Thursday slot beginning October 30.
