Stranger Things cast net worths: Who is the Netflix show’s richest star?

Some of the youngest cast members get paid $250k per episode of the show

Stranger Things is a Netflix favourite. Partly because the show is so good, but also because we have come to love the cast members as though they are our own friends. To most of us, they really do have the dream set up: Having fun and being besties in real life, whilst also being paid to be in one of the best shows around. And when I say paid, I mean paid. The Stranger Things cast members have racked up pretty impressive net worths off the back of being on the show.

According to Deadline, the kids in the cast of Stranger Things made around $30,000 an episode during the show’s first two seasons. This means they each pocketed around $510,000. Ahead of season three, the cast negotiated wages, so were paid even more. In season three they were paid $250k per episode, around $2million in total. So before season four even dropped, some of the cast members had already earned over $2.5million. Whew.

Here are all the cast members of Stranger Things, ranked by their huge net worths.

Sadie Sink – $3million
