The eight-episode Stranger Things 3 is expected to hit Netflix sometime in 2019. While Netflix, like its streaming competitors, doesn't report viewership numbers, most outlets that track the streamer's ratings report Stranger Things as one of the most watched on the service.

"We're not going to put Will through hell for a third season in a row", Executive producer Shawn Levy previously told Galmour.

Whatever the case may be, the increase is a big one for the show's stars. It's believed their salaries will be between $300,000 and $350,000 an episode.
