How Kaley Cuoco Became a Millionaire With The Big Bang Theory

“The Big Bang Theory” is one of the most successful TV sitcoms of all time. Leading actress Kelly Cuoco not only became a global series star with her role, but Filthy Rich as well.

TV and streaming audiences alike have loved American actress Kelly Cuoco for her role as Penny in the hugely successful sitcom The Big Bang Theory. From 2007 to 2018, the CBS series aired for 12 seasons. Lead actress Cuoco has earned an incredible amount of over US$160 million with the series during this time.

At the start of the series, for the first three seasons between 2007 and 2009, the trio of Cuoco, Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter) earned $60,000 per episode, Deadline reports. But with 63 episodes in the first three seasons, it still works out to $3,780,000 for lead actress Cuoco.

But with the growing success of The Big Bang Theory, the paychecks got bigger. The three main actors just mentioned, they negotiated a gradual increase in their salaries. He was paid $200,000 per episode in season four, $250,000 in season five, $300,000 in season six, and $350,000 in season seven.

Penny actress Cuoco earned an incredible amount of US$26.4 million before taxes during this time – and was also financially involved in the so-called syndication proceeds. That’s money that comes from selling the licensing rights to the show.

Fees at the “Friends” level

However, it was far from the end. Before season eight — meanwhile the whole world was watching the likeable stupid sitcom — Cuoco, Parsons, and Galecki negotiated a new deal, according to the “Hollywood Reporter.” between seasons eight and ten, which earned him $1 million per episode. The actresses and actors “Friends” starring Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox made so much money in the TV business over the past two seasons of their hit sitcom.

According to Forbes, Cuoco earned $28.5 million in 2015 alone—the first full calendar year under the new, better deal.

After that, actress Cuoco went down financially – but for a very good reason. As “Variety” reports, the five lead actors Cuoco, Parsons, Galecki, Kunal Nayyar (Rajesh “Raj” Kuthrapali) and Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz) have taken their salaries to allow Mayim Bialik (Amy Farah Fowler) and Melissa. left a part of. Roach (Bernadette Rostenkowski) could have gotten more. Instead of one million, seasons eleven and twelve were still US$900,000 per episode.

However, Forbes reports that Cuoco still earned $26 million in 2017 and $24.5 million in 2018. She was the second highest-paid actress on American television in both years, after “Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara.

So in total, Cuoco has made about $163.4 million in pre-tax income from The Big Bang Theory so far. However, that number is only set to increase as the sitcom is still viewed globally. As a result, Cuoco still receives revenue from the sale of the rights to the series.
