'Stranger Things' Stars Cash in on Season 3

Fighting Demogorgons really pays off


It really pays to be a part of one of Netflix’s leading original shows. No, like it really pays and surprisingly well, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

For season 3 of Stranger Things, the actors are said to receive raises 10 times that of their starting pay.

The young actors of the show, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp will go from wages of about $20,000-30,000 an episode, to a whopping $250,000 per episode.

Older stars Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and Joe Keery will also see a wage increase to $150,000 an episode.

Actors Winona Ryder and David Harbour will receive around $350,000 an episode at the start of season 3.

Last but not least, Millie Bobby Brown. The Eggo-loving telekinetic Demogorgon slayer "Eleven" will be beating out her fellow young actors with a wage increase to about $300,000 per episode.

The wage increase is most likely due to the show's popularity as well as the increase in sales of Stranger Things merchandise.

Filming for the anticipated third season of the hit show is said to begin next month to bring the 8-episode season to life.

Lesson learned, if the Duffer Brother’s ask you to be a part of their show, no questions asked, you take that job.
