'The Big Bang Theory' Cast Goes Back to Work


The cast of The Big Bang Theory returned to work on Wednesday after negotiating their way to a major pay increase.

Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki will reportedly come close to tripling their current salary. They are expected to make around $1 million per episode next season. Additionally, with signing bonuses, increased ownership in the show and production deals, the three actors could potentially rake in around $90 million each over the next three years.

Though these salaries are large, keep in mind the show is expected to clear $1 billion in profits.

ET's Brooke Anderson went down to the Warner Bros. studio, where the show is taped, getting a feel for the atmosphere after those tough contract negotiations. Watch the video for more.
