Big Bang Theory cast lands big-bucks for seasons 8 through 10
After weeks of intense negotiations, the cast of CBS’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’ have secured some of the largest salaries in television history. Production on season eight was delayed due to the negotiations, but now everything is back on track and the premier is still scheduled for later in September.
The stars that were negotiating new contracts included; Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and Johnny Galecki. During negotiations these three were asking for $1 million an episode. This became a sticking point, and season eight was almost delayed.
Multiple online sources, the first being Deadline, have announced that all three actors have signed three-year contracts with Warner Bros. television for the requested $1 million an episode.
Production on the eighth season was expected to begin last Wednesday, July 30 but since the contracts were not finalize that could not happen. Now everything is in order for the Big Bang. Continue for at least three more years without issue. “The Big Bang Theory” premieres Monday, Sept. 22, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
