“Stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar [of ‘The Big Bang Theory’] have not yet reached a new deal with studio Warner Bros. Television, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with the cast officially not returning to work on season eight.”

The story in THR continues with this statement from Warner Bros. TV: “”Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ — which was originally scheduled to begin today [Wednesday, July 30th, 2014] — has been postponed,”

THR adds, ” The first table read of the season was scheduled to take place today. It’s unclear just how long production will be delayed as the cast and studio remain at an impasse on a new deal. The move comes as a surprise to the studio, which previously was not expecting there to be a work stoppage, believing that the cast would arrive back at work Wednesday, with or without a contract.”
