(Newser) – The cast of Stranger Things will be making a lot more for the third season of the hit Netflix show. Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter the adult stars, Winona Ryder and David Harbour, will make up to $350,000 per episode (up from $100,000 and $80,000, respectively), while the four male child actors (Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp) will be making about 12 times more than they were—$250,000 per episode. The final tier of stars, Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), and Joe Keery (Steve), are making about $150,000 per episode, according to the sources. It's not clear how much child star Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, is making; some sources suggest she's also making $350,000 per episode, while others say she's at $300,000. Production of the third season is set to begin April 23. (Read more Netflix stories.)
