Stranger Things season four is finally underway, over a year after the entire cast received a pay rise for season three. But how much do the stars of the Netflix series earn?
The Duffer Brothers are working on Stranger Things 4 in preparation for its 2021 release date on Netflix, 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 third series. But how much do they each get paid now?
Each of the young actors made $250,000 per episode in Stranger Things 3, 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.
Winona Ryder, who plays Will Byers’ mum Joyce, and David Harbour, who stars as Jim Hopper, reportedly made $350,000 (£278,000) from each episode in the previous series.
Each of the cast's wages will now doubt go up once again for Stranger Things 4.
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 episodes.
Natalie Dyer (Nancy), her boyfriend Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), and Steve actor Joe Keery received a little less than their younger co-stars but they still took home a jaw-dropping amount of $150,000 (£120,000) per episode.
