“Stranger Things” has been one of the biggest hits on Netflix since it debuted two years ago. The second season of the show was also very popular. Therefore, it only makes sense that the young cast members of the show get financially rewarded for helping to make the show such a success. All of the cast members will be getting very big pay raises before season three starts filming later this year. The rumor is that each cast member will be getting $150,000 for each episode. That is basically a $120,000 per episode raise from season two. This is reasonable considering how popular the show is.
There was some criticism regarding the plot of season two. There were many people who thought the second season did not live up to the excellence displayed by the first season. Fans of the show had very high expectations for season two. However, the general feeling among fans is that the second season played it safe instead of getting darker. It remains to be seen if the writers will go into a darker direction for the third season. Some people thought that some of the smaller and more unimportant plots should be disposed of.
No release date has been revealed yet by Netflix for the third “Stranger Things” season. Filming has not started yet. Therefore, it seems very likely that the season will not debut until the end of this year of the beginning of 2019. Netflix usually does not reveal release dates for any of their shows until just a few months before they debut. This helps to build anticipation from the media and fans. Some critics have said that “Stranger Things” should have only been one season. However, there was no way Netflix was not going to cash in on this surprise hit.
