It’s definitely a hit with fans, and their popularity is paying off as new reports state the cast of “Big Bang Theory” is headed towards a giant pay increase.

According to sources, the show’s original five cast members - Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar - are in negotiations to earn around $1 million per episode.

CBS already green lighted three more seasons of the series, so now it’s just waiting on negotiations with the actors.

The comedy is slated to go into production on its upcoming eighth season on July 30, but the entire cast is still awaiting new contracts. If they can’t make a deal with the studio, production could be delayed.
