'Big Bang Theory' May Return For New Seasons After Stars Agree To Pay Cut

The Big Bang Theory may return for two more seasons after the original cast agreed to pay cuts.

Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) and Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) each receive $1 million per episode.

However, their co-stars Mayim Bialik (who plays Amy Farrah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (who plays Bernadette Rostenkowski) each receive a paltry $200,000.

I know, it's not to be sniffed at by any means, but clearly when you're doing the same job it's got to sting a little.


The original five have now agreed to sacrifice $100,000 each so that Bailik and Rauch can receive $450,000 per episode.

Variety claims that multiple sources have confirmed the generous gesture.

The only condition for the pay cuts is that the money saved from their pay-packets goes directly to the two actresses.

The show has managed to bring in over $1 billion for Warner Bros. since it started all the way back in 2007.
