Kaley Cuoco Signs $90 MILLION Deal to Return to The Big Bang Theory!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Along with co-stars Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco held out on her Big Bang Theory contract recently, forcing CBS and Warner Bros' to delay the start of filming for TV's number one sitcom.

Well, it turns out the Key Three's stubbornness paid off as they all now stand to cash in big time from the show's final seasons.

Cuoco, Galecki, and Parsons have reportedly all signed contracts that could be worth over $90 million over the course of the next three years.

The trio will receive about $1 million for 72 more episodes, as well as roughly 1% of series' annual profits.  

Not bad for a girl who was never a household name until she dated Henry Cavill last year. 

As for the show's other stars, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are still holding out for bigger salaries. The actor's most recent raises brought them to about $100,000 an episode. Certainly not bad, but chump change when compared to the three leads' salaries.

Of course, the real question of the minds of Kaley's millions of Instagram followers is whether or not her extended commitment to TBBT will cause any delay in Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting's plans to start a family.

Kaley hasn't said anything on the topic, but we're guessing you'll be seeing a "Penny gets knocked up" storyline some time next season. Fingers crossed that Sheldon's the dad.

I've read elsewhere they will receive $1 million each per ep so if they film 75 episodes and take in money from shares or revenue from syndication that's gonna hit $90 million over the course of 3 years. This article is poorly written so it seems that it's combined.
That being said... They won't become huge movie stars they will stay forever tv icons. Only Jennifer Aniston moved on huge after Friends.
Hollywood has a lot of bank. Smh.

I'm a big fan of the BBT but not one of the cast deserves 1 million per episode. She's a B- movie star at best. They tell one of the funniest cast member to take what they offer or be written of the show. For all you people who can't add. Each one of the 3 will get 90 million. 24 episodes per year for 3 years is 72 million and don't forget the back-end deal money they get. I guess she feels she needs that much money to support her dead beat husband.

90 million: Think of all the people that would feed. She is NOT worth 1000 dollars. Who said that she could act in real life. She can't even act on the show.

Read the story.
She does't get $90M. Several members of the cast share it.

Geez, what a lying healine. Cuoco isn't getting $90M; she's sharing it according to the story, with at least 3 other people. And in truth, none within the three could act their way out of a wet paper bag.

They're not sharing it, each one will get about $90 million. They're getting paid $1 million an episode; with three seasons left, and each season being approximately 24 episodes, that's $72 million apiece right there. I'm guessing the other $18 million will come from her percentage of the annual profits.

they better give us good acting and great storylines to watch. For the most part I enjoy watching Big Bang Theory.

No they each will be making $1M per episode. It's stated clearly in other articles. They were previously making in the range of $325k per episode. A Healthy Bump! So, yes she will receive in the range of $90 Million over the next 3 years.

She hasn't looked like that in 6 years.

She is definitely not worth it. As pretty as she is, her character is the least entertaining on that show. Her limitation as an actor probably has much to do with it. At this point in the show she COULD be written out and after couple of episodes no one would miss her. The
main point behind her character was to establish Leonard and Penny story. Can a geek get the Hot Chick? Well, he did, good for him. Now she is just a set decoration. She should have been replaced with a better actor and while simultaneously establishing a better character. But that’s just me. Good for all of them for great results in negotiations. Now get to work and earn it.

Kaley deserves her compensation. It's an ensemble cast which is why they negotiated. You have NO idea what you speak of. Go back to that rock you crawled out from

Negative...The OTHER two (Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar) DESERVE OBSCENE salary hikes...Kaley? Puh-lease.

I agree, I'm not a fan of hers and have never seen the show. But she has every right to to get 1% of the total profits. People tune in to see her too. I think the high salaries are ridiculous but who else would get the money?
