The (now very wealthy) cast of "The Big Bang Theory" has returned to work after settling their contract negotiations.
Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco will make around $1 million per episode for the next three years, according to the Associated Press. They reportedly made $300,000 per episode prior to signing new contracts. Actors Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar also renewed their contracts.
Warner Bros. Television confirmed on Tuesday that they had come to a financial agreement with the cast.
Parsons, who plays Sheldon, posted a photo of himself on Instagram holding the first script from the upcoming eight season.
He captioned it: "Wednesday. Day 1, script 1, season 8! #goodmorning..."
Executive producer Bill Prady tweeted on Tuesday, "Well, that's more good news," followed by a picture of the script on Wednesday.
