Stranger Things  premiered in 2016, and is said to be Netflix’s most-watched series. The sci-fi drama, which is set in the 1980s, has been nominated for 18 Emmys. Its cast picked up the 2017 Screen Actors Guild award for outstanding ensemble in a drama series.

Their increases are big compared to what the Stranger Things stars were said to be making previously.

THR reports that the child actors were  paid “in the low $20,000 range for the first and second seasons of the series” per episode — meaning their increase to $250,000 is a 1,150 percent increase.

Ryder was said to be making “around $100,000” and Harbour “$80,000,” THR reports.

Stranger Things season 3 is expected to premiere on Netflix in October.
