Stranger Things season three is finally here, and this year each of the cast members received a hefty pay rise.
Netflix finally dropped series 3 of Stranger Things on 4th July, meaning the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and Finn Wolfhard are back for another season of demogorgons, mind flayers, and the Upside Down.
After huge successes with seasons one and two, the cast received a pay rise for the new series. But how much do they each get paid now?
Winona Ryder, who plays Will Byers’ mum Joyce, and David Harbour, who stars as Jim Hopper, will reportedly make $350,000 (£278,000) from each episode.
Each of the young actors will make $250,000 per episode, and this includes Mike actor Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Lucas actor Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp, who plays Will.
While Millie Bobby Brown still counts as one of the young stars, as she holds the main role in Stranger Things the Eleven actress receives more than her co-stars.
According to TMZ, Eleven actress Millie Bobby Brown negotiated a pay rise for season three, reportedly earning $350,000 (£280,000) per episode, which totals to $2.8 million (£2.25 million) across the eight new episodes.
Natalie Dyer (Nancy), her boyfriend Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), and Steve actor Joe Keery will receive a little less than their younger co-stars but they’ll still be taking home a jaw-dropping amount of $150,000 (£120,000) per episode.
