Big pay rises all round for the Stranger Things cast

Filming hasn’t yet begun on Netflix’s Stranger Things season 3, but details of the show’s return are beginning to seep through. In particular, the returning cast have been secured with the help of some sizeable pay increases.

According to a new report, the child stars of the show are set to increase their paypackets tenfold at least for season three.

Winona Ryder and David Harbour will be taking the highest pay, earning some $350,000 per episode as the lead adult actors. But of the younger performers, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp are now all set to earn $250,000 an episode. On $150,000 each will be Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer and Joe Keery.

Those are the deals that have come to light at least, with Millie Bobby Brown likely to be earning on the higher end of the scale too.

Season three doesn’t begin until next year. More details on it as we get them.
