Netflix spent $30 million on each episode of Stranger Things
Each new episode of Stranger Things costs Netflix $30 million. It is reported by The Wall Street Journal, citing sources close to the company.
Speaking of Harbour, perhaps Season 4’s expensive budget for Stranger Things shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans. In the past, Harbour has corresponded Season 4 of Stranger Things to Lord of the Rings, although he was speaking especially about the journey that plays a part when the show produces.
Assuming that Netflix is currently undergoing a substantial drop in subscribers, Streamer does not doubt that its investment in Season 4 of Stranger Things will bring more people back. Again, it could be argued that fans of Die Hard Stranger Things, knowing that the new season is just around the corner, weren’t the subscribers who left Netflix.
The platform spent that amount on every fourth season’s episode, which is scheduled to premiere in May. The season will include nine episodes in total.
Stranger Things is a fantasy horror film starring Winona Ryder, Millie Bobby Brown , and Finn Wolfhard. The series is about children who witness paranormal activity that is being secretly investigated by the government. The project started in 2016.
On April 20, it became known that the publication of the reporting of the Netflix video service led to a drop in the value of its shares by a quarter (27.7 percent) to $348.61. The negative reaction from investors is associated with the first decline in the number of subscribers in ten years. The reasons for this dynamics were both the departure from Russia, where the service, as it turned out, had 700,000 subscribers and the overall reduction in the number of customers due to the lifting of coronavirus restrictions and increased competition.
