Asking Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, all six originals, to return to the Central Perk couch nearly 17 years later came at a hefty price tag for Warner Brothers.

Each received a total amount of $3 to $4 million for their appearance at the reunion.

Each received a total amount of $3 to $4 million for their appearance at the reunion. Despite mixed reviews, the show proved to be a hit among fans and by one report, HBO Max subscriptions increased by 600 percent when the reunion was announced – an overall success by all involved.

It’s rare to receive this type of income for a 30-minute show, and we know the stars of The Big Bang Theory pulled it off, but they were standing on the shoulders of the first group of actors who formed their own mini-union and negotiated a record-breaking contract.

In seasons one and two, each cast member made $22,500 per episode. In season two, most of the stars continued making $22,500 per episode with two of the most popular characters played by Aniston and Schwimmer making $40,000 per episode.

As season three approached it became apparent that the main characters were going to be paid based on popularity and quickly, some actors or actresses were seen as less valuable than others, which not only is a problem working together on set, but it also leaves some feeling like they should move on to other opportunities and breaking up the original six.

Schwimmer had begun receiving movie deals and his agent encouraged him to seek a newly negotiated contract. It was his idea for the six to join together and negotiate as a group versus individually, cementing the most successful negotiation of it’s time.

Through their collective strategy, according to Daily Mail, all six received $75,000 per episode in season four, $85,000 per episode for season five and $100,000 per episode in season six.
