It's no secret that the stars of The Big Bang Theory are making a killing from the show, and it has now been renewed for seasons 11 and 12.
According to a new report from Vulture, the show has brought in more than one billion dollars for Warner Bros. TV, so the cast members are certainly worth investing in.
Since season 8 of the series, main cast Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar have all been earning $1 million per episode for the show. Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik, who were added to the show a few seasons in, are earning about $500,000 per episode.
Vulture have put it together, and worked out that Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons will all have made at least $139.8 million each by the time the series is done with season 12.
This takes into account the fact that their salaries started at $60,000 each in season 1, moved up to $200,000 in their next three-year deal, then got $350,000 per episode in season 7 before negotiating the $1 million per episode for season 8 onwards.
And that's just for their salaries, they will also get a cut of the $1 billion Warner Bros. TV revenue from the show.
