The stars of "The Big Bang Theory" just got a pretty huge pay raise and things are going great for them. They were able to get new contracts and they are making the big bucks now. On Monday, MSN shared about the big pay raises that Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki just received.
For the next three seasons of the show they are all three going to get $1 million per episode. They used to only make $300,000 per episode and so this is a pretty big raise for these actors. That will make them the highest paid actors and actress on television for this show. This show could even be renewed for more seasons.
This actually delayed them filming the next season of the show, but it was only by about a week. CNN shared that they were not filming a few days ago while they were still working on their contracts. The show will start filming and table reads this week. It might mean a little bit of extra work but hopefully they can start on time. If they can't, it should only be about a week behind.
They all got signing bonuses as well and also own more of the show than they did before. It is a big raise for the stars of "The Big Bang Theory." This could make other sitcom stars think twice about what they are getting paid and want to ask for bigger raises. Nobody else is making anything near the same amount of money that they are making now for their show.
"The Big Bang Theory" is set to return on September 22. As of right now, it looks like it will be airing when expected. It should be a great new season and fans are ready for it. Now Parsons, Cuoco and Galecki are ready to start filming it as well.
