Would you like to make more money? Sure, we all would. Even millionaire television and movie stars would like to make more money. Stars of the hit comedy series, The Big Bang Theory are no different.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have already received updated contracts with salary increases from Warner Brothers.
Jim Parsons who is the popular Emmy winner, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco are all in talks to request higher salaries that may reach as high as $1 million per episode. According to TV Guide, the three currently make $325,000 per episode as written in their contracts that will run through this season.
Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco have fought in the past to have their salaries increased. In 2010, the three stars who play the key trio of Sheldon, Leonard, and Penny were able to negotiate higher salaries. So, this isn’t the first time increases have been requested.
Kunal Nayyar who plays Raj and Simon Helberg who plays Howard have also been in the process of asking for increased salaries.
Will the pay increases be worthwhile to keep the cast happy enough to return for many more future seasons? Fans of the show sound very devoted to continuing their support.
My mom and I watch the Big Bang theory every night together.
