Stranger Things Cast Lands Massive Pay Bump for Season 3

The young cast of Stranger Things are set for a massive pay rise for season three, it's been reported. The cable network also recently inked new deals with the stars of Big Little Lies when it made a decision to bring the limited series back for a second season. Where they had been making about $20k per episode for the first two seasons, they now stand to make upwards of $250k for season three. Adult actors Winona Ryder and David Harbour have been placed in the Tier A and both of them will be making United States dollars 350,000 per episode.

Brown, the young breakout actress of Stranger Things, reportedly scored a bigger payday than the other young cast members.

The creators of the show have admitted the new season will include a time jump, as the younger actors get older and start to visibly age from their adolescents. Ranking behind "Stranger Things" which got 4.3 million demand expressions, the second season of "Marvel's Jessica Jones" garnered 4 million expressions.

Die hard fans of Joe Keery's Steve Harrington may be upset to hear that he's in the bottom of the salary spectrum, making about $150,000 per episode.

Snow Remains in Overnight Forecast
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Snow showers will come to an end, with clearing skies, and a frigid overnight low temperature of 23 degrees. With the models continuing to show inconsistencies run to run, it makes this forecast more hard to pin point.

According to the sources, the main actors are divided into different tiers of pay. She is rumored to be making at least $250,000, and could possibly be making as much as Winona Ryder. Millie Bobby Brown, 14, is heading for more than her male co-stars. David Harbour's Chief Hopper alone is probably responsible for smoking the most cigarettes in a television series of all time.

Netflix has yet to announce a release date for Stranger Things 3, which is created by the brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer.

Netflix declined comment on the reports, while representatives for each of the actors did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Season 2 will hopefully resolve the questions left unanswered in the finale of the first season - particularly whether Ruby and Olivia are going to survive.
