'Stranger Things' Gives Raises to the Entire Cast

Meanwhile, veterans Ryder and Harbour, both of whom were already household names before the show, anchored the past two seasons. Where they had been making about $20k per episode for the first two seasons, they now stand to make upwards of $250k for season three. The show's young stars Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) are set to collect $250,000 each episode. But some sources suggest Brown may be getting even more, possibly the $350,000 per episode that Ryder and Harbour are making. While the streaming service isn't sharing any secrets about pay grade or viewership, the widespread impact that Stranger Things has had on popular culture is enough to indicate how these deals occurred. It's believed their salaries will be between $300,000 and $350,000 an episode. Maya Hawke will join the cast as a series regular, playing an "alternative girl" named Robin.

Strangely, the tier in which Millie Bobby Brown will sit in hasn't been revealed, but we imagine she may join the older members of the cast in the "A tier", as she's been such a breakout star of the show.

Netflix declined comment on the reports, while representatives for each of the actors did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The Stranger Things cast salary is reportedly going through the roof - like our adrenaline levels when we hit play the day the new season is dropped.

Despite all of the above featuring the habit, Truth Initiative also looked at shows that didn't feature smoking, including Marvel's Daredevil season 2. He received a Golden Globe, Emmy, Critics' Choice and Screen Actors Guild nomination for his work on the Netflix Original series.

There's nothing unusual about the huge pay rises the entire cast of Stranger Things just scored for season three.

Because time can't stop with these growing young stars, the third season of Stranger Things is set to jump ahead a year, landing the characters in the year 1985.
