In 2016, Wolfhard began to play the role of Mike Wheeler in the Netflix series Stranger Things. He auditioned for the role via video after seeing an open casting call. The cast of the series won a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
He played Richie Tozier in the film adaptation of Stephen King's It, which was released on September 8, 2017. The casting of Wolfhard in both Stranger Things and It, set in the '80s, had been a coincidence. According to Wolfhard, he had been initially cast as Richie when Cary Fukunaga was attached as director and co-writer, but when Fukunaga left the project over creative differences, the role fell through which allowed him to pursue Stranger Things. Once Andy Muschietti became attached to It, Wolfhard had to re-audition for the role of Richie.
On September 22, 2017, it was announced that Wolfhard had been cast as Tyler, an altruistic and thoughtful pizza delivery boy, in the Ken Marino-directed film, Dog Days. In addition, Wolfhard was also cast in Amblin’s haunted house film The Turning, an adaptation of Henry James’ novella The Turn of the Screw.
In 2018, Wolfhard joined the cast of The Goldfinch, the John Crowley-directed adaptation of the Donna Tartt's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, playing Young Boris Pavlikovsky, a Ukrainian student and troublemaker.
Aside from acting, Wolfhard is the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Vancouver-based rock band, Calpurnia. They are signed to Royal Mountain Records in the United States and Canada, and Transgressive Records and its imprint, paradYse, for Europe and the United Kingdom.
