The young stars of the show were reportedly making about $30,000 per episode for the first two seasons, but now they will all be getting about $200,000-$250,000 dollars per episode.

But all that ire turned to awe when Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on the hit show, tweeted a sweet message of support and an invite request.

Netflix's original drama series such as "Stranger Things", "Marvel's Jessica Jones" and "Orange is the New Black" dominated the chart of the 10 most in-demand digital shows in France, according to a report compiled by Parrot Analytics over the last seven days days.

In previous seasons, Ryder and Harbour were paid $100,000 and $80,000 an episode, respectively, while the kids earned somewhere in the low $20,000s.

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.

Though, there is one actress whose salary remains a mystery to all - that of break-out star Millie Bobby Brown.


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

Yet, you're telling us that the young stars of one of TV's biggest hits will still earn less than Jamie Foxx did for hosting Shazam? .

The third season of Stranger Things is expected to go into production in April. The actors who play the onscreen teenagers - Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) and Joe Keery (Steve) - are in the "C tier". The drama, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, was nominated for 18 Emmys a year ago, including acting nods for both Brown and Harbour.

Netflix also issued a statement in which they supported the Duffer Brothers and stated they investigated the claims, finding no wrongdoing on the set of Stranger Things.

Details known for the third season include that it will feature a new evil and won't focus on Will as much.
