The cast faced a similar situation when they were renegotiating their contracts in 2010; however, at that time they were still obligated to show up to work under existing contracts that had not yet expired, Deadline notes.

Though production on Season 8 of the CBS comedy, which is the No. 1 show on television, is scheduled to begin on July 30, the date may be pushed if the two sides can not reach an agreement. Big Bang's one-hour season premiere is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 22.

In Season 7, Galecki, Parsons and Cuoco-Sweeting each commanded about $350,000 per episode. Deadline reports that they could earn up to $1 million per episode.
