Stranger Things stars score massive pay hike

Stranger Things stars score massive pay hike

Deadline reports that the lead child and adult stars of Stranger Things will be getting a raise for the upcoming season.

Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) will be making about $250,000 each per episode.

Millie Bobby Brown's wage however could be even more, with the 14-year-old actress reportedly having separated herself from other cast members during the renegotiation process.

The season two premiere averaged a massive 15.8 million viewers within the first three days of its release in the USA, and the second go-around took in about 8.8 million viewers per episode domestically overall, according to Nielsen data (per Variety).

Regardless of which tier everyone falls in, these are some awesome salaries, especially considering how many of these actors got their breakout role in Stranger Things.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that both the adults and kids have managed to negotiate 12 times more than they made for seasons 1 and 2.

Netflix has yet to announce a release date for Stranger Things 3, which is created by the brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer.

Other Netflix originals, Orange is the New Black and Marvel's Jessica Jones rounded out the top three shows streamed in the country, according to the report.

A couple of the young stars of the popular Netflix show "Stranger Things" reached out to a fan after learning no one showed up at his birthday party.

Whatever the case may be, the increase is a big one for the show's stars.

All of the series regulars are reportedly getting raises ahead of Season 3, but it sounds like the young stars are in for particularly big pay increases.
