LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — The studio that produces critically acclaimed "The Big Bang Theory" said it has reached contract deals with the sitcom's cast.
With negotiations concluded, the comedy will begin production this week for the 2014-15 season, Warner Bros. Television said in a statement Tuesday.
Work on the eighth season reportedly had been delayed as the cast of TV's top-rated sitcom held out for raises. Agreements have been reached with stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco for lucrative three-year contracts that trade reports put at about $1 million per episode for each actor.
Deals are in place with the entire cast, which includes Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, the studio said.
Last month the show was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for the fourth year in a row, while star Jim Parsons was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for the sixth time having won is 2010, 2011 and 2013.
The CBS series about geeky scientist pals and the women who love them returns September 22nd.
