The negotiations are over! The Big Bang Theory will go on!
As of Tuesday afternoon, just in time for the first table read of the new season, stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar finally signed new contracts!
That's good news for fans as it means production on Season 8 will continue today!
So did the last holdouts make deals as amazingly lucrative as costars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco?
Well, according to insiders the actors were looking for parity with the big three but only got it on the back end profit shares.
But as big a hit as the show has been, that still means they'll EACH get around $70 million over the course of three years!
AND in season 10, the pair will indeed get bumped up to their co-stars' astronomical million-bucks-an-episode salaries!
Our theory? That was just too big a paycheck to decline. Um, bang. Yeah.
Big Bang's eighth season is back on track and so will debut as scheduled with an hourlong premiere on September 22nd!
