Stranger Things has been a star making vehicle for most of the young actors on the show including Brown, who has landed several modeling gigs as well as a role in the upcoming feature Godzilla: King of Monsters.

The only star's salary that remains a mystery is key player Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), whose earnings are presumably harder to pin down because of how integral she has become to the DNA of the show.

Truth Initiative, a USA public health organisation, released research which claims that Netflix original programmes have more than twice as many smoking scenes compared to its rivals. With enormous raise in their payouts, Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbor (Sheriff Hopper) will now be earning $350,000 per episode. If simple math's not your thing, we've got you covered - that totals out to $3.5 million for the season.

According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter earlier today, the main cast will now be cashing in cheques more than ten times of what they were previously approved to receive.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated third season of Stranger Things, the cast is reportedly going to see a considerable bump in their paychecks. They will earn $250,000 per episode. Deadline reported that Natalie Dryer and Charlie Heaton-who play Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers, respectively-are making $100,000 to $150,000 per episode. Some think that seeing her sit alongside the likes of Ryder is a pipe dream however, and she may have her own "Millie tier", taking home around $300,000 per episode.

Martin '08 charged in connection with threatening Instagram post
The post was made eight days after a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. A day later when Martin was arrested , police found a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, knife, and ax located in his vehicle .

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that both the adults and kids have managed to negotiate 12 times more than they made for seasons 1 and 2.

Streaming giant Netflix had a big debut today-but it wasn't the latest must-binge show.

At least two "Stranger Things" stars are looking for an invite to a boy's birthday party next year after no one from his class showed up to his elaborate sci-fi show-themed party this year.

The first two seasons of Stranger Things are now streaming on Netflix. After a crew member stated she was quitting the production for Season 3 due to harrassement, series creators Ross and Matt Duffer issued a statement apologizing for any ill will on the set while denying that they created a hostile environment.

Ad Age reached out to Netflix for more info on the typeface, but a spokesperson declined to provide further information.
