The entire cast of the hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory is back under contract.
Actresses Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have finalized their deals to stay with the show over the next two seasons. According to insiders close to production, the deal will pay Bialik and Rauch $500,000 per episode for 48 episode. The deals are believed to include a separate development component for both actors.
The Big Bang Theory was renewed for two additional seasons back in March after deals were finalized with the show's original five cast members - Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg. Each of them will earn $900,000 per episode, with each member voluntarily taking a $100,000 pay cut to free up additional money for Bialik and Rauch’s raises.
Bialik and Rauch first appeared in season three of the show and joined the cast the following year.
The Big Bang Bang Theory is television’s highest rated comedy.
