Bialik and Rauch will make $ 500,000 per episode for Seasons 11 and 12 — each of which will consist of 24 episodes — up from the reported $ 175,000–200,000 per episode they’re currently making in Season 10.

Ahead of the two-year renewal first announced in March, it was reported that the series’ five other main cast members — Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) — all of whom are netting $ 1 million per episode, volunteered to cut their per-episode fee by $ 100,000 each to free up money to give Bialik and Rauch a raise.

On Big Bang, Bialik and Rauch — who play Amy and Bernadette, respectively — were both introduced as guest stars in Season 3, before becoming full-fledged series regulars in Season 4. News of their contact renewals comes days after the series wrapped production on Season 10.
