The Stranger Things kids have wished one of their own a happy Father's Day on Twitter.

Everyone fell in love with Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) as a sort of fatherly figure to the group in season two of the Netflix hit – and so Dustin, Mike and the gang have paid tribute to him with a Twitter video.



"I gotta say I thought you were gonna be my future brother-in-law," Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) said in the clip. "But after Nancy dumped you... you know, you're still part of the family."

"Not only did you pump up Dustin's hair, but you pumped him up, got him together," Gaten Matarazzo added. "Yelled at him like a good dad should, made sure he was doing what he was supposed to do.

"You protected him, you protected the other kids, and we just want to say thank you for that and say Happy Father's Day."

Aww.

Good news is, "Dad Steve" will be back in season 3 as executive producer Shawn Levy recently revealed at a PaleyFest panel (via THR) that he will have an even bigger role.

"We'll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) in season three, and I'll just say we won't be abandoning the Dad Steve magic," Levy explained.

"I don't want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve."

That sounds good to us, but we have a pretty long wait before season three airs – and when it does arrive, it will be even shorter than season two.

Earlier this year, David Harbour revealed that the series is expected to run for eight episodes this time round – meaning it's one less than season two, but on par with season one.

Stranger Things is expected to return to Netflix in 2019.
