$139 million dollars. That’s how much the DailyMail has reported will be earned by the three stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, and Johnny Galecki. By the time the 12th season hits these three actors will have grossed nearly 140 million, not to mention the countless other perks and career moves they’ve gained with the exposure of the show. Each of the original three makes over 1 million an episode, and each season has about 20 episodes. That means this new renewal guaranteed the stars at least 40 million. That’s no chump change.

Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg certainly haven’t come out with nothing. These actors bumped up to the million dollars an episode level at the beginning of Season 8. All five actors have agreed to take a $100,000 pay cut to ensure Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch are paid their fair share. These deductions were taken into account when the $139 million figure was calculated, so it seems that they won’t exactly leave a hole in anyone’s pocket.
