According to reports, both the child as well as the adult stars of the sci-fi drama would get a six-figure salary per episode due to the bumper new deals they have signed with Netflix.
According to reports coming from various media outlets, the entire cast of ‘’Stranger Things’’ – Netflix’s sci-fi drama – is set to get a huge pay raise in the build-up to Season 3.
While all the starts would see their paychecks getting fatter, it would be the young stars who would get the maximum improvement in their per-episode salary, as per rumors.
Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Finn Wolfhard, the young male stars of the show, would take home more than $150,000 per episode as a part of the new deal. Millie Bobby Brown, who is considered as a star performer for the show, is set to earn even more.
Astonishingly, all four young stars earned ‘’only’’ $30,000 per episode in the first two seasons of the ‘’Stranger Things’’, which means that their salary has grown six-fold for the upcoming season.
As much as they are going to make, the young stars aren’t the only ones whose bank balance would grow in the upcoming months.
For, the two main adult stars of the sci-fi drama, David Harbour and Winona Ryder, would earn a mouthwatering sum of $200,000 per episode.
Produced by Netflix and created by Duffer Brothers, who would return in Season 3 as showrunners and executive producers, the 3rd Season of ‘’Stranger Things’’ would come off seeing the massive success its predecessors have enjoyed.
Recently, the sci-fi drama earned a Guild Award nomination for the Screen Actors for best ensemble in a drama series.
The Season 3 would have fewer episodes than its immediate predecessor, and Netflix has also confirmed that new faces, like those of Maya Hawke, would be making their entry into the drama as well.
Also, Priah Ferguson, who played an intermittent role in the first two seasons, is set to be promoted as a series regular in the upcoming season.
