Millie Bobby Brown is reported set to earn even more than her co-stars.

The kids from Stranger Things are about to earn more than you could EVER hope to have in your bank account because they've all just got HUGE pay rises.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the entire cast of Stranger Things will be getting a raise for their work on season three. It was reported back in 2017 that the kids earned around $30k per episode on the first two seasons of the show, but thanks to contract renegotiations going into the third season, the cast are about to earn almost 1000x more than they were already getting.


According to the sources, the main actors are divided into different tiers of pay. Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce Byers, and David Harbour, who plays Hopper, are set to earn up to $350,000 per episode.

The next tier down consists of all the younger stars of the show - Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard and Gaten Matarazzo - who will now earn $250,000 per 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.

But where's Millie Bobby Brown, we hear you cry? Information about how much money she'll be earning per episode hasn't been disclosed but it's believed that her team renegotiated her deal separately and is now thought to be earning around $300,000 per episode... or maybe even more.

So, if there's going to be 8 episodes in season three... then Millie will be raking in close to $2.4 million. Get ya coins, girl!


Stranger Things will return to Netflix at some point in 2019.
