Deadline reports that Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, the show's three biggest stars, have officially each signed a three year contract, which means the show will be going on for at least season 8, 9 and ten. This leaves the door open for a potential eleventh season as well.

So, just how much are they getting? The cast is rumored to be banking about $1 million per episode for the next three years, which evens out to about 72 episodes total. You do that math. It's easy math! You can do it.

These new contracts, which have more than tripled the three stars' salaries per episode, also leave room for them to produce on the side and get involved in feature films and/or theater if they so desire.
