Jul 30 (TheWrap.com) - “The Big Bang Theory” has hit a stumbling block on its way to another season.
Production on the series, which was due to begin Wednesday, has been postponed, as series stars including Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco continue to negotiate their contracts.
“Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ — which was originally scheduled to begin today — has been postponed,” Warner Bros. Television said in a statement Wednesday.
The series, a ratings giant for the network, is scheduled to return to the air Sept. 22.
The comedy, co-created by Chuck Lorre, was nominated for a handful of Emmys this year, including Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as nominations for Parsons and supporting castmember Mayim Bialik.
