Who is the richest star of the Netflix series?


Stranger Things is a Netflix favorite. Partly because the show is so good, but also because we’ve come to love the cast members as if they were our own friends. For most of us, they really do have the dream in place: to have fun and be best friends in real life, while getting paid to be on one of the best shows around. And when I say paid, I mean paid. The cast members of Stranger Things have racked up some pretty impressive net worths thanks to their presence on the show.

According Deadline, the children of the Stranger Things cast earned around $30,000 per episode during the show’s first two seasons. That means they each pocketed around $510,000. Before the third season, the actors negotiated salaries and were therefore paid even more. In the third season, they were paid $250,000 per episode, or about $2 million in total. So even before season four dropped, some cast members had already earned over $2.5 million. Phew.

Here are all the Stranger Things actors, ranked according to their huge net worth.
