Stranger Things is one of the world’s most popular shows, and Steve Harrington is one of its most well-known characters. Stranger Things is one of the few TV shows that can literally get the entire world talking.
When it initially debuted on Netflix in 2016, its brief eight-episode first season swept the world by storm, and it has done so every time a new season is released. One character has undoubtedly become Stranger Things’ most popular throughout the course of the show’s run. We’re talking about Steve Harrington, of course.
Originally a bully, Steve went through one of television’s best redemption journeys to become one of its best characters. Steve took us all by surprise, from his ever-changing relationship with Nancy Wheeler to his wonderful friendships with Dustin Henderson and Robin Buckley.
Speaking of surprises, if you’ve recently begun watching Stranger Things and want to know if Steve lives, here’s all you need to know.
Does Steve Die in Stranger Things?
If you’re dying to know if Steve makes it through Stranger Things, you can rest easy. Not only does he make it through all four seasons, but he also didn’t die right away in season 1.
Yes, it turns out that Steve was supposed to die in the first season of the show, and Jonathan’s dad was supposed to help Jonathan and Nancy fight the Demogorgon in the season 1 finale instead of Jonathan. As for why Steve made it through season 1, it turns out that actor Joe Keery and his amazing performance had a lot to do with it.
Who Really Dies in Stranger Things?
Now that Steve is safe, let’s look at who actually dies during the fourth season of the show. After meeting Vecna in volume 1, Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien), Fred Benson (Logan Riley Bruner), and Patrick McKinney (Myles Truitt) all died. In the last two episodes of Season 4, there were more sad deaths.
First of all, Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) dies, but not before he sets Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) free so she can fight Vecna. Fans of Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), sorry, but the new guy dies, too. Jason Carver (Mason Dye), the new bully of this season, died when the Upside Down was opened in Hawkins.
After Vecna finally gets Max (Sadie Sink), fans (kind of) said goodbye to her. Max is in a coma, but it seems like Eleven brings her back to life. No one knows how her story will go on in the last season.
Will Joe Keery Quit the Show Stranger Things?
When the fate of a character is in doubt, fans often wonder if the actor who plays that character is about to leave the show.
Steve made it through Stranger Things season 4 volume 2, so it’s likely that Joe Keery will be back in season 5 to play him again.
