'Big Bang Theory' leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco agree to 3-year deals with hefty raises
As far as the "Big Bang Theory" universe seems to be concerned, all is right for the time being as the main stars on the CBC hit show have extended their contracts for three years more. Kaley Cuoco along with Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki have agreed to the contracts have finally put an end to the delay in the production of the show and to be honest, we are quite happy about it.
However, the sealing of these contracts comes at a great price for the show’s producers because the actors have demanded more for their new contracts. Though exact figures have not been revealed, it is being said that Kaley Cuoco and her two co stars have got their deals somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 million per episode along with share in the profits. As compared to the $325,000 these actors had been getting for last season, this million dollar figure seems to be big leap.
According to Hollywood Reporter, other stars on the show Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar will also reach an agreement by the end of this week and our favorite five leads will be brought back to the show. The contract had to be resolved soon as the show is number 1 for the CBC channel and hence the stakes involved were high for both CBS and production studio Warner Brothers Television.
