Stranger Things Cast Scores Big Raises for Season 3

Some sources suggest she be picking up as much her adult co-stars Winona Ryder and David Harbour - who are apparently going to be picking up $350,000 (£250,000) per episode. 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.

Details on the pay rate for returning cast members Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery and the new cast members for season 3 were not revealed. That's roughly 12 times more than what they were making for the first two seasons. Breakout star Millie Bobby Brown is said to have landed an even bigger slice of the pie than her teenaged castmates, though nowhere near her rumored asking price of $500,000. For the first two seasons, the kids were reportedly paid $30,000 per episode, however, the third season will reportedly see Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp bank $250,000 per episode.

It is being said that the makers will be paying close to $350,000 to the adult stars per episode. Their second tier of actors are all presumably making somewhere in the $200,000-$300,000 per episode range. A couple of days after Alambat's original tweet was posted, the word got back to Millie Bobby Brown herself. The drama, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, was nominated for 18 Emmys past year, including acting nods for both Brown and Harbour.
