Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco have successfully reached a deal that is sure to make them very happy and very rich.
The Big Bang Theory three will be making about $1 million per episode! Which rivals the pay of the cast of Friends during their last season.
The new contracts are for another 3 seasons which will include 72 episodes. By the end of the show it is estimated that they could make over $90 million each!
Not only did the deals included a raise in fees per episode, but Parsons, Galecki, and Cuoco will get a bigger share of the show with their ownership jumping from .25 to 1 point.
Since The Big Bang Theory has a viewership of over 20 million and has already profited $2 billion, that 1 point is worth a lot!
In addition, the three got production deals with Warner Brothers. Galecki is working on a show for Fox called Here’s Your Damn Family and Parsons will be developing a series based on theProdigies of Youtube with Radical Media.
Meanwhile, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, who have stuck together during negotiation, are getting very close to signing new deals also. They have previously made a little more than $100,000 an episode, but judging from the other three’s raises that number should be making a big jump.
Not only is this great news for Parsons, Galecki, and Cuoco, but with the wrap up of contract negotiation the show should resume production by August 6. Since this only a puts The Big Bang Theory a week behind schedule the cast and crew should be able to make up lost time later in the season.
But what may be the best news of all is the report that the door has been left open for an 11th season!
The Big Bang Theory will return with an hour premiere on Monday, September 22.
