The Big Bang Theory is currently in the middle of it’s 10th season. And, after 10 season the cast members are making good money! They’re not making *KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK!* … PENNIES. (sorry, had to)

According to Variety, the cast is currently negotiating salaries for seasons 11 AND 12.

While the original five stars each earn $1 million an episode, actresses Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz) who joined the show in the third season, only get paid $200,000 per ep.

The trade publication says the original five (Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg) are offering a pay cut of $100,000 per episode each so Bialik and Rauch get paid more. The $100,000 from each cast member would then be divided equally between Bialik and Rauch so they’re salaries are increased to $450,000 per episode. *BAZINGA!*
