The actor sued the show’s production company, Rysher Entertainment, in 2010, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He claimed his contract entitled him to 50% ownership of the show if it lasted more than 66 episodes; the show eventually produced 122 episodes.
Originally, a jury awarded Johnson $23.2 million and the judge awarded interest, which brought the total award to $50 million. A later decision by an appeals court cut that to $15 million. While either could appeal that decision, court papers show that Rysher paid Johnson a bit less than $19 million, and Johnson has filed paperwork indicating that he is satisfied with the outcome.
