All four young stars reportedly earned US$30,000 per episode during the first two seasons.
What remains a mystery is where the show's 14-year-old breakout, Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), landed among those tiers, as her camp has been tight-lipped throughout the dealmaking process. Also getting raises are regular teen cast members, Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) and Joe Keery (Steve), each cashing out roughly $150,000 an episode.
Gaten Matarazzo is also in a band, with Work In Progress performing the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers' Can't Stop live. So, it's always a little surprising when specific numbers are attached to any Netflix series, especially the streaming service's (presumably) biggest hit.
Variety has received a new report indicating that Stranger Things is the most popular show on Netflix when it comes to French audiences, while Jessica Jones came in a close second. Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) - are the "B tier".
Well, here's some good news for fans of Stranger Things. Those working behind "Stranger Things" have renegotiated wages as should be the case on a series like this, and there doesn't appear to be any scandal of a gender wage gap looming, as was the case for the first two seasons of "The Crown".
Stranger Things Season 3 is slated to start filming on April 23, but it may not premiere until 2019. Not bad for a Netflix show that came in with a ton of fresh faces? The cable network also recently inked new deals with the stars of Big Little Lies when it chose to bring the limited series back for a second season.
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.
