Stranger Things is all Netflix viewers can talk about. Since it dropped its jaw-dropping Season 4 Volume 2 last week, Stranger Things has been the trending topic online 24/7 for the last few days. We’re still reeling from the tragic deaths, the gorey possessions, and the mind-blowing plot that we’re still trying to figure out. Suffice it say, Season 4 Volumes 1 & 2 blew us all out of the water… and it’s earning the cast a hefty paycheck. 

Season 4 is quickly climbing Netflix rankings, making it possibly the most valuable asset of the streamer. So it should come as no surprise that the cast of Stranger Things are all getting paid generously for their hard work. Based on the latest data from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, the cast of Stranger Things earned anywhere from $100,000 to $350,000 per episode for the third season. This likely means that the cast got a slight pay bump for Season 4, so we can only estimate their minimum fees for the latest season. 

Given that Season 4 has nine episodes, the actors are likely earning anywhere from $1.35 million to $3.15 million for the whole season. Not bad at all. 

Here’s how much the kids (and adults) are earning from Stranger Things.
