Stranger Things stars are getting a big raise in advance of Season 3
The child stars of the Netflix series will see their salary soar from $30,000 an episode to between $150,000-$250,000 an episode, according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, who adds that Millie Bobby Brown "is believed to have landed a bigger raise than her young counterparts" thanks to her breakout star status. Adult stars Winona Ryder and David Harbour also scored significant raises, bumping their per-episode salary to $200,000 an episode to keep their pay ahead of the children. As Andreeva explains, "while actors cast as series regulars on a TV show almost always have long-term deals, it has become a tradition for the casts of successful series to renegotiate their contracts after the second season after receiving one-time bonuses ahead of Season 2. That is what happened with the main players on Stranger Things." UPDATE: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryder and Harbour are each getting $350,000 an episode while the main kid stars will earn $250,000 per episode.

Stranger Things 2 is impressive for living up to its incredible expectations
The hugely acclaimed Netflix series “had an almost impossible task when it came to following up on a first season that had near-universal acclaim,” says Katharine Trendacosta. “That it’s still engaging, gorgeous looking, and smartly written is a truly impressive feat. The show didn’t hit any reset buttons; it let every character grow and change, and it’s just remarkable. This is a show growing naturally into itself and does everything to make the nine-hour commitment worth it.”
