HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The stars of “The Big Bang Theory” could be getting back to work as soon as this week.

Production for the upcoming season has been halted by a salary dispute. Now, Deadline.com is reporting Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have new three-year deals.

The report says they’ll be making about a million bucks per episode. It also says the stars are getting a slice of the show’s profits.

No comment yet from the producers, CBS or the stars’ reps.
