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.
So how does that add up in the end?
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
