It’s Time For a Joe Keery & Steve Harrington Appreciation Post

Joe Keery as Steve Harrington/Netflix

It would be hard to find a Stranger Things fan who doesn’t wholeheartedly agree that Steve Harrington had one of the best redemption arcs on TV in the past couple of years. He went from a total tool in season 1 to a totally lovable babysitter and an all-around nice guy in season 2. Well, Steve is played by the equally charming and hair-tastic Joe Keery who just so happens to be celebrating his birthday today!

So, because Joe Keery (and Steve) are a gift to the world we’ve gathered up a combination of our favorite Joe/Steve moments for your entertainment. Enjoy!
