You Won’t Believe How Much It Cost to Make One “Stranger Things” Season 4 Episode

Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to make a hit show like “Stranger Things”?  Well, think no more.  In an article published yesterday in The Wall Street Journal, people close to the show said each episode of Season 4 had a cost of $30 million.  And with nine episodes, that’s a total of at least $270 million.

 

To put it in perspective, the final season of “Game of Thrones” had a cost of $15 million per episode.  But comparably, “WandaVision”“Loki”, and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” cost $25 million an episode.

 

So this $30 million budget isn’t totally unheard of.  But former seasons cost an average of $8 million an episode . . . so I’m curious to see what effects and sets are in store.  The first part of season 4 hits Netflix on May 27th.
