Sources at the show and CBS have told Radar the series will end after season 12 as some cast members are itching to get out — despite their million-dollars-an-episode paychecks !

Jim Parsons — a four-time Emmy winner for playing mega-geek Sheldon Cooper — already narrates the spin-off, Young Sheldon.

But the gig's got co-stars Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki — who play Penny and Leonard Hofstadter — in a tizzy! "It's no secret Kaley thinks of herself as the show's big draw," spilled one insider.

Johnny is reportedly "silently simmering" over Jim's big-dog status as TV's highest paid star — with a whopping $27.5 million a year!

Network honchos soothed Johnny's ruffled feathers when the new comedy he's producing, Living Biblically, was slated for a mid-season premiere in February.

"Jim and Johnny both have wealthy new deals now," noted a source, "and that's turned a lot of the others off!"
