Stub it out: Netflix criticised for too many smoking scenes

The stars of the hit Netflix sci-fi drama, a lot of them young teens, have scored major pay raises for the upcoming third season of the show.

Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), who has become a big star because of the series, is said to be getting around $300,000 an episode, but could be anywhere from $250k to $350k.

The global success of Stranger Things has led to the cast renegotiating their contracts with a massive pay increase.

It's also known that Stranger Things 3 will feature eight episodes, which is the same as the first season, but down one episode from Season 2.

Starring in one of the biggest shows in the world has its perks, and the stars of Stranger Things are reaping the benefits. Ahead of Stranger Things season three, all the major players are getting a raise.

Ad Age reached out to Netflix for more info on the typeface, but a spokesperson declined to provide further information. The publication notes that Brown will be the highest-paid of her young co-stars. They similarly have made a grand old leap from around $20,000 (£14,288) per episode in the first two series to a rumoured $250,000 (£178,600).

According to Deadline, Winona and David Harbour, who plays police chief Jim Hopper in the show, will be earning up to $350,000 per episode of the programme and are on the "A tier" of the cast.

It's remarkable, though, Stranger Things, which premiered in July 2016 and whose second season premiered in October 2017, is still more popular than new shows on the streaming service.

Truth Initiative found that Netflix shows portray 319 "tobacco incidents", which is more than double the amount of depictions of smoking across other TV shows. It remains to be seen when the new season will take place and what storyline will affect the characters, the creators appear to be hard at work in an attempt to get the show ready for its return in 2019. The cable network also recently inked new deals with the stars of Big Little Lies when it chose to bring the limited series back for a second season.
