20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets From Stranger Things
Steve wasn’t supposed to last more than a season.
It turns out that the Steve that we have come to know and love is very different from the OG version we would have originally had. Not only was our guy initially supposed to be a bully, but he wasn’t supposed to make it to season two. (Imagine your own ending with a Demogorgon or the Upside Down.) NME reported that in the Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down book, the Duffer brothers were supposed to kill off some major characters, including Steve. That changed when he became less of a D-bag and a big fan favorite. In fact, fans are now threatening to riot if anything bad ever happens to the character.
