Exciting things are afoot in Hawkins, and no, it has nothing to do with anyone getting stuck in the Upside Down or being eaten by a Demogorgon. *Phew*

The Stranger Things cast—adults and teens alike—are reportedly getting a massive pay bump for season three. According to Deadline, each of the show’s stars will now make upwards of six figures per episode.

Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Noah Schnapp (Will) and Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) all earned $30,000 per episode in the first two seasons. Now, Mike and the guys are reportedly making about $250,000 per episode. Oh, and Millie? Yeah, she’s making even more than her pubescent male counterparts. Although details about her pay raise have yet to be released, our inner feminist is already screaming “Yasss!”

Hawkins adult cast members Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) and David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper) faired just as well. Both actors are making somewhere between a cool $300,000 and $350,000 an episode.

Don’t worry, the on-screen love triangle of Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) and Joe Keery (Steve) wasn’t left out. Their salaries now fall in the range of $100,000 to $150,000 per episode. With pay raises like that, IRL couple Dyer and Heaton can finally buy their own earbuds.

Stranger Things season three is expected to begin production on April 23, and just like season two, it will include nine episodes.
