Time to breathe a sigh of relief, "Big Bang Theory" fans: the raises are finally rolling in!
Last week, "Big Bang" stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and Johnny Galecki were reportedly asking for $1 million per episode, delaying production on Season 8 of the beloved CBS comedy.
It looks like they got their wish. According to Deadline, Parsons, Cuoco-Sweeting and Galecki have all signed three-year contracts with Warner Bros. TV for exactly that. So by 2017, when the series is set to end, the stars will have earned close to $90 million. Talk about a sweet deal!
Although "Big Bang" fans were a little worried about the delay in production, which was scheduled to begin on Wednesday, July 30, CBS president Nina Tassler was never all that concerned.
"We're feeling very confident that everything will work out," she said at the Television Critics Association summer 2014 press pour, according to Access Hollywood. "These deals manage to get done miraculously somehow year after year."
"The Big Bang Theory" premieres Monday, Sept. 22, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
