Portraying the small role of Zoran marked his acting and television debut. In late 2014, he starred in another popular show – Supernatural, where he played the role of Jordie Pinsky.
In 2016, Wolfhard was announced as the leading cast member of the forthcoming Netflix series Stranger Things. He has been playing the main role of Mike Wheeler ever since then, a role for which he auditioned via video after he saw an open casting call. The Netflix show marked the breakthrough of the young actor who at the time of the shooting was just fourteen years old.

Wolfhard’s Total Net Worth
While Finn Wolfhard has earned most his income from his role as Mike Wheeler in Stranger Things, that is likely to change as Wolfhard transitions from television acting into film.
Wolfhard earned $80,000 for season one of Strange Things with a $10,000 per episode salary. For season two of the show, he was paid $30,000 per episode, resulting in total season earnings of $270,000. His per episode pay then jumped by more than eight times after a renegotiation based on the incredible success of the show.
For season three Wolfhard was paid a per episode salary of $250,000, or $2 million for the season. That salary amount is expected to have been kept the same for the seasons since as it had been inked at the ‘after season two renegotiation’, meaning that it will likely stay at that rate until the end of season five. For season four, Wolfhard earned $2.25 million as it had a total of 9 episodes. Therefore, in total, Finn Wolfhard has earned $4.6 million from Stranger Things, as of the end of season four.

As well as around $1 million from his appearances in It and IT: Chapter 2.
Still it all adds up and, in total, it is likely that Wolfhard has had career earnings of around $8 million dollars when factoring in his endorsements and, to a far lesser extent, his music. Of that amount, around $1 million is expected to have been paid in business related costs. The remainder, $7 million, will have been taxed at around 45% as Wolfhard as he has lived and worked between California, United States and Vancouver, Canada. After tax, it is estimated that his career earnings are at around $3.85 million dollars, having paid $3.15 million dollars in taxes.

He remained with them until their disbandment in November 2019. During his four years tenure with the rock band, he was signed to the label Royal Mountain Records and toured the world. Just recently, he formed his own band titled The Aubreys. Besides the debut EP Soda and Pie, some of the hits that Finn has contributed to are “Loved One”, and “Smoke Bomb”.
