MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The new season of America’s number one TV show could be delayed.

The stars of The Big Bang Theory can’t reach a contract agreement with the network.

They currently each make $375,000 an episode.

Sources say they’re asking for up to $1 million for the next three seasons.

Producers also have to reach agreements with co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.

The Big Bang Theory was supposed to start production on new episodes Wednesday.
