Subscribe To Why Stranger Things Is Teaming Up Two Unexpected Characters In Season 2 Updates
We're only days away from the second season of Netflix's Stranger Things hitting the streaming circuit, and we'll soon get to check back in with all the characters we came to know and love in the first season. Not a whole lot of footage has been released so far, but the most recent trailer did reveal the team-up of two unexpected characters: high school cool kid Steve and the D&D-loving middle schooler Dustin. Joe Keery plays Steve on the series, and he had this to say about working with Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin in Season 2:
Well, it's safe to say that the funny scene at the end of the last trailer wasn't the only Steve/Dustin material we'll get out of Season 2! While we won't know the exact context of what brings them to join forces in the next batch of episodes, Joe Keery's comments seem to indicate that both Steve and Dustin needed a new ally. Given that the trailers seem to point toward Nancy spending a lot of her time with Jonathan, Steve might be spending a lot of time with the middle school kids, which should be a lot of fun. As for Dustin... well, it seems like Will will be getting a lot of the attention in Season 2. He may be looking for a partner in crime for some investigations.
Steve the irresponsible babysitter definitely has a lot of potential to mix things up for Season 2, which already looks wild with that big Shadow Monster. We can bet that he won't be keeping the kids out of trouble; if anything, they may rope him into some of their dangerous shenanigans. Joe Keery explained more about working with all the kids in Season 2, saying this:
The kids (who will be way more foul-mouthed in Season 2) and Steve all probably have a lot to learn from each other. I'm guessing Joe Keery isn't just hinting that Steve will learn the ropes of Dungeons & Dragons to join the boys in Mike's basement for campaigns, although it would be fun to see Nancy's reaction if she walked down the basement stairs to find Steve hanging out with her little brother and his friends. Who knows? After venturing into the Upside Down together, they may all be friends.
