Eh, HOW much?! The stars of The Big Bang Theory are RAKING it in

Most of us here at SHEmazing! HQ are seriously regretting giving our Speech and Drama classes the heave-ho after primary school since hearing how much the cast of The Big Bang Theory are being paid nowadays.

According to Deadline and People, not only have the ensemble cast made a mint through production deals, bonuses and various other perks, everyone's favourite on-screen nerds have started earning a whopping $1 million per episode.

While it's well-known that the cast of Friends were on a sweet mil per ep when they finished up in 2004, David Schwimmer and co. reportedly had to spend much of their time on the show arguing for equal pay rises as the show gained viewers and rose in the popularity stakes.

So, while the Central Perk kids spent years reaching the million dollar mark, it's understood the BBT guys took just a couple of years to reach those dizzying heights after pay negotiations began back in 2014.

Up until two years ago, the cast fronting Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady's geeky bonanza were taking home $325,000 per ep, but it sounds like Chuck is more than happy with the new arrangement.

"Everybody should be very successful and happy and rich. They earned it," he told E! News. "It's a great cast. It's their time."

Just think about it – another mill in the bank every time a director yells 'That's a wrap!'
