Variety: Kunal Nayyar Inks New Deal with Big Bang Theory

Kunal Nayyar Variety reports that that Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg have inked new deals with the Big Bang Theory.

The pair are the final two to renew their contracts and now production on the popular show has resumed–albeit a week late.

Production which had been scheduled to begin July 30 was postponed as the entire cast held out for more money.

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco signed new deals Monday for $1 million an episode. Nayyar and Helberg had been demanding parity, but reportedly signed in the mid-six figure range. That’s still a nice bump from their previous salary of $100,000 an episode.

The pair agreed to sign after reportedly being told to take it or they would be written out of the program.
