Three of the five core cast members have reached new deals with Warner Bros. Television, securing significant pay raises, The Hollywood Reporter notes.
The prolonged negotiations that previously resulted in a small production delay have now been worked out. Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have all inked new three-year deals. It is said that the trio of Emmy-winners negotiated together in search for increasing their previous $325,000 per episode agreements to about $1 million. Meanwhile, co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are expected to reach an agreement with the network later this week.
Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik have already secured pay raises with the network when they finalized their contracts back in September.
