Stranger Things returns to Netflix on Thursday, July 4 and we are so ready to be reunited with the iconic Steve Harrington. 

Steve swiftly became a fan favourite after the second season of the horror series. His adorable bond with Dustin and his new role as the gang’s babysitter won fans over, but will we be bidding farewell to Steve and his divine 80s hair this season?

In a new interview, Joe Keery, who plays Steve, may have revealed his character’s fate and we’re slightly worried.

Joe and his co-star Maya Hawke are discussing the upcoming season when he reveals the spoiler.

When asked if anyone makes it out alive in season three, Maya and Joe reveal that people do survive.

Maya adds: “People survive. Survival happens.”

And then Joe mutters, “I don’t.”

Naturally, fans have been freaking out over this clip because killing off Steve just isn’t right. They’ve taken to Twitter ahead of the season three premiere to freak out about Steve.

We'll have to wait until Thursday to find out what happens to Steve Harrington. Until then, we’ll be fretting about everyone’s favourite KFC-lovin’ Hawkin’s hero.
