Say it ain't so, Kaley!
While stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live on September 12, The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco hinted that there might not be a season 11 of the popular CBS show.
When Kimmel asked her if the hit comedy series would be getting an eleventh season, Kaley didn't exactly sound optimistic about the likelihood of that happening. "It's a very expensive question for a lot of people," Cuoco responded.
She seemed quite serious that the money would be a huge factor in deciding whether CBS renews the series for another season. While that may sound obvious that money will be an enormous part of the decision, there aren't too many actors on television that have ever made the amount that Cuoco and her co-stars will be asking for to return.
Kaley and her two main co-stars, Jim Parsons (43) and Johnny Galecki (41), all have contracts that pays them $1 million per episode on a 24-episode regular season. Those contracts expire at the end of season 10, so if they all agree to return to the series, they would likely be looking for pay raises. In the event that there was an eleventh season of the show, contracts for the three stars alone would cost well above $72 million of the show's budget.
Besides discussing the future of TBBT, Cuoco took on Jimmy Kimmel in a race along Hollywood Boulevard on top of rideable suitcases. Check out the hilarious video below:0comments
Do you think CBS needs to put the money up for Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, and Johnny Galecki to return for an eleventh season of The Big Bang Theory?
