Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wonder how much The Big Bang Theory cast makes per episode?” Well, you’re not alone. It’s one of the most popular shows on TV, and let’s just say, their paychecks reflect that!
Earlier this year, it was reported that cast members Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar, and Simon Helberg agreed to take $100,000 pay cuts so that their co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch — who first appeared in Season 3 — could get salary increases. When speaking about the negotiations, Mayim, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit show, told HuffPost, “I know there’s a lot in the news, not all of which you should listen to about people’s salaries, and not everything you read on the Internet is true.”
While the actress said she’s thrilled that the series is coming back for at least two more seasons, she added, “I don’t just mean it like, ‘I’m making so much money. I’ll never make this money again, so I might as well make as much as I can now.’ That’s not how I frame it. But I’ll never get this opportunity again to be part of a show that does what we do.”
We’ve compiled a list of the cast’s individual net worths as well as how much they earn per episode, both of which were acquired using celebritynetworth.com. Scroll through the gallery below to find out who’s making the most!
