The third tier is made up of the young adults of Stranger Things, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and Joe Keery who are set to make an impressive $150,000 (£107,160) per episode.

While the "kids", Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp earned themselves a sweet $250,000 (€203,000) per episode in series three.

But all that ire turned to awe when Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on the hit show, tweeted a sweet message of support and an invite request.

Looking at the numbers, 79% of the shows most popular with young people, aged 15 to 24 years, depict smoking prominently, the research finds. Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbour (Jim Hopper) make up the "A tier" and are making up to $350,000 an episode.

The third season is expected to begin production around April and premiere somewhere next Spring.

The teen cast is the final tier of the new Stranger Things salary cast breakdown. The kids in the B tier were making around $20,000 per episode, but will now be pulling in a whopping $250,000 per episode.

The Tier C consists of teenage actors Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton and Joe Keery, and they will be pocketing a sum of Dollars 150,000 per episode. Fans must note that most of these stars are newcomers and they will be taking home 12 times more than what they were earning when they started.

For comparison's sake: five stars on Game of Thrones - Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - make $500,000 per episode.

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

The first two seasons of Stranger Things are now streaming on Netflix.

Netflix has declined to comment on the pay increase reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline. All four reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for the first two seasons.

Netflix has yet to announce a release date for Stranger Things 3, which is created by the brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer.
