Numerous younger actors in the Netflix hit received pay raises for Season 3 that exceeded 10 times their original wages, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.

Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) and David Harbour (Jim Hopper) will, however, be earning about $100,000 more than the kids.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cast has been segregated into three tiers.

According to a report in Deadline, the child and adult stars will make six figures per episode.

Brown, now 14, who famously shaved off her hair for the role of the kinetic Eleven, has become something of a pop culture phenomenon.




The kids from Stranger Things are about to earn more than you could EVER hope to have in your bank account because they've all just got HUGE pay rises.

Sources suggest she could be earning $350,000 like her adult actors, with others suggesting she could be earning $300,000 between. The stars behind the massive success of the series have been able to renegotiate their salaries and have been rewarded with a whopping raise. Going into the third season, the actors will now make $250,000 per episode - a nice income for a bunch of teenagers.

Based on the global popularity of the series, this is a well-earned scale in compensation. The "B" tier is made up of the younger stars. Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson rounded out the top-1o for comedy at $500,000 per episode, with the series again being one of television's most-watched in its recent eighth season run.

Netflix declined to comment on the news.

"We are leaning into it", Matt Duffer told Indie Wire. And the popularity of the show has prompted Netflix to strike licensing deals with clothing companies like Hybrid Apparel and Hot Topic, even leading the company to hire an executive (Jess Richardson) to oversee those efforts. It seems like negotiations were rather painless between the cast and Netflix and everyone's getting paid a lot more money now.
