BIG BANG's Jim Parsons & More Settle on 'Megabucks' Deals to Continue Through 2017

Following several weeks of delayed filming, the three main stars of the long-running CBS hit comedy The Big Bang Theory have finally settled on contract negotiations, according to Variety.

According to the report, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have committed to stay with the series through the 2016-17 season and have nearly tripled their salaries to a whopping $1 million per episode under the three-season agreement.

In addition, the actor will receive a full backend point in the show, marking an increase from the fractional point they received in their previous contracts. A rep for Warner Bros. TV has declined to comment on the report.

Still undecided is the fates of co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, who are still negotiating their own contracts to continue with the show. Variety reports that they are unlikely to reach the seven-figure salary per episode as their co-workers.

About the show:

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists - geniuses in the laboratory, but socially challenged everywhere else. Enter beautiful, street-smart neighbor, Penny, who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. Despite their on-again, off-again relationship in the past, Leonard believes he's found true love with Penny. Even Sheldon has found a female companion, entering into a "Relationship Agreement" with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler. In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon continue to enjoy frequent trips to the comic book store and fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Koothrappali, Wolowitz and Wolowitz's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette.
