  • Stranger Things Actors Get Huge Salary Raises for Season 3

Meanwhile, the main group of kids (Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Finn Wolfhard) are set to earn $250,000 an episode. Deadline reported that Natalie Dryer and Charlie Heaton-who play Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers, respectively-are making $100,000 to $150,000 per episode.

Intellectually, we understand that simple economics and leverage have paved the way for the young cast of Netflix's hit series Stranger Things to rake in massive dollar amounts.

Stranger Things Season 3 is slated to start filming on April 23, but it may not premiere until 2019. With enormous raise in their payouts, Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbor (Sheriff Hopper) will now be earning $350,000 per episode. Going into the third season, the actors will now make $250,000 per episode - a nice income for a bunch of teenagers.

Doors have opened, too, for her young co-stars. Although Netflix has declined to comment, sources tell the news site that the streaming service is paying about $350,000 per episode to the cast for the next season.


Stranger Things has been an overwhelming success so far, and its creators-the Duffer Brothers-are extending the financial benefits on to the show's stars.

There also seems to be a uniform salary scale for the cast which is probably a good idea to prevent potential unequal pay among male and female cast members. Harbour, who already had an extensive résumé before Stranger Things, saw his star rise considerably after the show's debut, landing the lead role in the Hellboy reboot.

The kids are doing alright because Stranger Things is Netflix's most popular series, earning the streamer 18 Emmy nominations and spawning valuable licensing deals for merchandise. The third season will consist of eight episodes so each will receive $2.8 million. It will jump ahead a year and introduce new evil characters.
