Stranger Things cast are reportedly set to earn a massive pay rise for season 3, following the Netflix show's huge popularity. Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp and Caleb McLaughlin, Winona Ryder and David Harbour have all reached or are finalizing agreements.

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. Some sources say she's making as much as the top tier, while others believe she's making $300,000 per episode, right between the other kids and the adults.

There's nothing odd about the huge pay rises the entire cast of Stranger Things just scored for season three.

As Netflix has run into serious issues on its former flagship series House of Cards in the wake of Kevin Spacey's sexual misconduct scandal, Stranger Things has quickly become the platform's crown jewel. They will reportedly make $350,000 an episode.

There are less firm figures around Millie Bobby Brown, a.k.a.

Netflix declined to comment on the news.

The show's Emmy success has proved an exciting vehicle for both career break-outs and comebacks, so we're not super surprised these stars are getting payed so heftily. Since the show's premiere, however, Netflix is averaging roughly four million new subscribers per quarter, and it closed out 2017 on the back of season two's October premiere with a staggering eight million new customers, shattering internal projections.

Regardless of which tier everyone falls in, these are some awesome salaries, especially considering how many of these actors got their breakout role in Stranger Things.

Because time can't stop with these growing young stars, the third season of Stranger Things is set to jump ahead a year, landing the characters in the year 1985.
