Stranger Things star Joe Keery says relationships are the core of the show; calls the action ‘fun’

Stranger Things is one of the most beloved shows on Netflix and its stars also have a massive following around the world. Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington, has now opened up about what makes the show special. 

“This whole season, a big part of it, is action. Reading it on the page I felt, 'Wow, there is a lot for everyone to do'. Everybody has a lot of moments. The relationships are the core of the show, that is the backbone of why we are rooting for these characters,” Keery said in an interview as reported by PTI. 

The actor added that while the action is fun, the reason for the show to work so well is its cast and everything feels natural in an encouraging and collaborative environment. 

The first season of Strange Things started streaming on Netflix in 2016, and became an instant hit. The show was set in the 1980’s in Hawkins, Indiana, where a young boy disappears, leading to an investigation that uncovers some supernatural secrets. 

Apart from Keery, who became a fan-favourite following season 2, the show also stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton and Maya Hawke. 

“Volume I of season four recaptures the true essence of Stranger Things, going back to its roots, and delivering a riveting first half of the season. It has found the perfect balance between a fresh storyline and its core elements, allaying any fears that the series might become repetitive,” read the show’s review on OTTplay. 

The fourth season of the show has been divided into two volumes, with the second volumes scheduled to start streaming on July 1. Seven episodes from the first volume is now available on the streaming platform.
