Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown will reportedly earn up to $350,000 per episode

The show's 14-year-old actor could end up earning as much as her adult co-stars, Winona Ryder and David Harbour

Stranger Things - Season 2 Final Trailer

The Stranger Things kids have landed a pretty hefty pay rise.

Netflix's supernatural series has become one of the jewels in the streaming service's crown, letting its stars share in some of its bounties with some major salary bumps for the upcoming season 3; part of an increasingly common trend in which TV actors renegotiate their contracts after their second season, after receiving a one-time bonus ahead of season 2.

The Hollywood Reporter states that the show's younger stars - Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp and Caleb McLaughlin - were initially earning around $20,000 per episode for the first two seasons, now raised to $250,000.

However, 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, may end up earning significantly more than her younger co-stars; sources have suggested she may earn somewhere between $300,000 and $350,000 per episode.

That would place her on an almost equal level to the show's adult stars, David Harbour and Winona Ryder, who are both set to make up to $350,000 per episode. The show's onscreen teenagers - Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and Joe Keery - will all earn roughly $150,000 per episode.


Though Netflix doesn't release viewership numbers, estimates have placed the show as one of its biggest hits, surely bolstered by its 18 Emmy nominations last year.
