This could help to set up some of the actors for the remainder of their careers - for many of them Stranger Things may just be a launching pad, but there is no guarantee that it will end up being this way for everyone.

In a report from The Hollywood Reporter, it's revealed that the stars of the hit show have received a major pay raise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Winona Ryder and David Harbour are making about $100,000 more than the kids per episode, likely because they have been in the business for quite a while. Numerous younger cast members were making about $20,000 per show previously, the outlet reported.

Now the one unknown in this whole equation is breakout star Millie Bobby Brown, who reportedly handled her negotiations separately from the rest of the cast. No demand expression figures were given for any of these series, but it can be presumed that they're much closer to Orange is the New Black instead of Stranger Things and Jessica Jones on the echelon of viewership. Meanwhile, actors Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton and Joe Keery, who play older teenagers, will make $150,000 an episode. Brown remains the outlier for both publications, with THR not tagging a specific number to her pay, but speculating she will make "at least" as much as the core group of boys, and could be making as much as Ryder and Harbour.

"We are leaning into it", Matt Duffer told Indie Wire. And the popularity of the show has prompted Netflix to strike licensing deals with clothing companies like Hybrid Apparel and Hot Topic, even leading the company to hire an executive (Jess Richardson) to oversee those efforts.

Streaming giant Netflix had a big debut today-but it wasn't the latest must-binge show. It will see the storyline jump ahead a year and will also introduce new forces of evil. It found Netflix shows featured a total of 319 "tobacco incidents" (a definition that covers implied use of a tobacco product), with Stranger Things top of the list for 182 scenes featuring cigarettes.

Two million an episode it is. The cable network also recently inked new deals with the stars of Big Little Lies when it made a decision to bring the limited series back for a second season.
