The other stars will reportedly take a $100,000 pay cut per episode. Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg, Johnny Galecki, and Kunal Nayyar will each make $900,000 an episode. That’s 43 million and 200,000 dollars total for each star. Coming to a whopping total of nearly 306 million dollars total being paid out to actors for The Big Bang Theory Seasons 11 and 12. 

Apparently, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch had been seeking a salary that would match their costars. However, they realized that it would never happen, and decided to settle for nearly half of what Kaley Cuoco has been making the past three years.

The only other show to negotiate such high salaries was FriendsThe core six actors of the Friends ensemble famously negotiated together in 2002 to get a whopping 1 million dollars each per episode. However, TBBT is now surpassing Friends in the number of seasons, so their total salary amounts overall will definitely surpass their famous rivals.
