American actor and musician Joe Keery’s Steve Harrington on Stranger Things has proven to be one of the show’s most interesting characters. And now with the science-fiction horror series returning on Netflix for its fourth season (on 27 May 2022), fans are interested again in his personal life, especially as to if or not he is still dating Maika Monroe.
So, the rest of the writing is a thorough and exclusive look at if or not Maika Monroe and Stranger Things star Joe Keery are still dating.
Are Maika Monroe And “Stranger Things” Star Joe Keery Still Dating?
Maika Monroe and Stranger Things star Joe Keery were still dating as of 2022, according to several media outlets. And the couple seemed to like to keep their personal life pretty much to themselves. Be that as it may, they did not mind getting clicked in public. They have actually been papped together on many occasions.
One of their recent public sightings was in late December 2021. The couple was sitting next to each other in the audience for a Lakers game. Maika was also there during the Season 3 premiere of Stranger Things.
And like that, there seemed to be nothing dramatic between them. They just seemed happy and looked like they really get along.
In a GQ interview in August 2021, when Joe was being presented as one of the most likable guys in Hollywood, he did not talk about his girlfriend a lot. But one could feel the way he said a few things that her presence in his life is great enough. Because she anyway popped up in every fourth or fifth anecdote during the conversation.
And Joe said a few things: how they spent so much time together over quarantine which was rare for them; he said Maika is just like him and does not take it all too seriously. Then, of course, how could GQ not notice the gold necklace around Joe’s neck that stayed on him at all times. It was a gift from Maika.
Among other things that this couple does together, one of them is spending as much time as they can with their dogs. (Of course) they have also been seen hand-in-hand at various rallies and marches for causes like Black Lives Matter.
While Joe’s IG @uncle_jezzy seemed to be no longer in existence (as of May 2022), Maika has clicked and kept a few pictures of Joe alone and of them together on hers @maikamonroe.
