Stranger Things stars reportedly land big pay raises

Millie Bobby Brown offers comfort after no one turns up to fan's Stranger Things party

The rise is especially dramatic for the young stars who were mostly newcomers before being cast in Stranger Things, reportedly pulling in about $30,000 an episodes the first two seasons.

The child actors are reportedly set to receive 12 times their previous deals, with Finn Wolfhard, 15, Gaten Matarazzo, 15, Caleb McLaughlin, 16, and Noah Schnapp, 13, all set to earn $250,000 (£149,196) an episode.

And then in the third tier, that's where you'll find Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton all earning around $150,000 per episode.

The third season is expected to begin production around April and premiere somewhere next Spring.

According to a report from Variety, Parrot Analytics claimed Stranger Things is the most-streamed show in France in March 2018.

Stranger Things is a monster hit for Netflix. As a result, Netflix is apparently willing to bump up their salaries accordingly. But some sources suggest Brown may be getting even more, possibly the $350,000 per episode that Ryder and Harbour are making. The show stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Patricia "Trish" Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Leah Gibson as Ingrid, and J.R. Ramirez as Oscar, with David Tennant making a guest appearance as Kevin Thompson (Kilgrave).

The Emmy and Golden-Globe nominated television show Outlander, which airs on Netflix, is looking to pick up some Canadians as extras on the show for their upcoming season.

The tweet eventually made its way to Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven in the Netflix series, and early Tuesday morning she tweeted that Aaron is "awesome". Higher-profile examples often spill into public view, dating back to the Friends cast landing their $1 million per episode paycheck.

"Stranger Things" recently earned a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for best ensemble in a drama series. It will jump ahead a year and introduce new evil characters.

When a TV show with an ensemble cast becomes an unexpected hit, things can get rather ugly behind the scenes.
