The eighth-season production of “Big Bang Theory” was delayed because of a contract dispute with the show’s top actors.
The Associated Press reported that the Warner Brothers Television studio, which produces the CBS’s big hit comedy, said that the first day of work was scheduled to be Wednesday, but it was postponed without a concrete date.
The actors who are still negotiating are Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.
Nina Tassler, CBS entertainment chairman, responded to the dispute two weeks ago and was optimistic about the conversations.
“I just love being able to answer these questions year after year, primarily because we have successful shows. And when you have successful shows, you have renegotiations,” Tassler said. “We’re feeling very confident that everything will work out. These deals manage to get done somehow miraculously year after year.”
It is unclear at this time if the production delay will affect the show’s set air date on Sept. 22.
