Say it ain't so, Sheldon!

On Tuesday, production on season 8 of The Big Bang Theory was delayed due to unsettled contract negotiations with Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar Mayim.

The standoff is over the cast's demands for a cool $1 mill per episode…a MAJOR jump from their $350 grand salaries of previous seasons.

Though the show was just renewed for 3 more seasons, many of the cast members' contracts expired at the end of season 7, which is what spurred all the negotiation drama.

Warner Brothers released the statement:

"Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on The Big Bang Theory—which was originally scheduled to begin today—has been postponed."

We know fans of The Big Bang Theory want their beloved sitcom back ASAP, so we hope the cast agrees on their salaries soon!

    They do deserve a raise but that's a series percentage increase. Unfortunately this is probably the peaks of their careers, and the greedy guys at the top just might decide to get rid of a couple of them just to make a point.

    Why is this show still on the air…?
