Stranger Things has become one of the biggest shows on the planet, with millions flocking to watch new episodes when they drop on Netflix. With the series becoming a household favorite, it makes sense that cast members have seen an increase in their paycheck. When season 1 hit the streaming service, no-one could have anticipated how much Stranger Things would blow up. And with the world waiting to see the fourth season, it has left us wondering, just how much do the cast members get paid?

Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers)

Season 1: $100,000 per episode. Season 3: $350,000 per episode

With Winona Ryder the most well-known cast member of the group, it makes sense that she sees a great salary from the show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress started with $100,000 per episode, before negotiating a new salary after the series proved to be a smash hit. Without Mrs. Byers, there may never have been a show. Poor Will would have been stuck in the upside-down forever!

David Harbour (Jim Hopper)

Season 1: $80,000 per episode. Season 3: $350,000 per episode

The adored Detective hasn’t done too bad for himself since joining the show. Along with Winona Ryder, David Harbour receives a pretty package of $350,000 an episode, meaning the actor made a whopping $2.8 million for the season. Since appearing in the sci-fi series, the actor has now appeared in the superhero movie Hellboy, while also starring in Netflix’s Extraction alongside Chris Hemsworth. Not too shabby.

Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven)

It’s crazy to think this young actress has become the star she is now! Millie Bobby Brown started with just $20,000 per episode in season 1, with a huge increase by the time season 3 was shot. Brown has now become one of the biggest standout stars, appearing in blockbusters such as Godzilla: King of Monsters and modelling for brands such as Calvin Klein. You go girl!
