Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton will return as Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers in the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things.
And today the two talked about what we can expect to see when Stranger Things 4 finally hits the streaming giant in (hopefully) the near future.
Heaton tells Netflix Queue: “There’s a distance there now, and distance is a hard thing in a relationship. Jonathan and Nancy have always been on the same team, and they both strive for the same goals. They both challenge each other as well. They can understand what the other has been through. This is the first season where you see Jonathan and Nancy in a full relationship, you see what that looks like. But they’re also in this work environment. What starts to show are their social differences. For Jonathan, this job means a lot. He’s very focused on his responsibilities, and he believes that Nancy doesn’t have to work as hard. He can’t see what she’s having to go through. They’ve always been fighting for a cause together in a high-stakes environment. You put them in a real-world scenario, and they start struggling. As the season gets more into the supernatural when they start fighting this monster, they put aside these small quarrels, and then ultimately, they fight for each other.”
Dyer adds: “I think Nancy’s lonely. With Jonathan leaving, who can she relate to? Who’s there? I mean, it’s the 80s, so it’s not like you can just hop on Skype or FaceTime. It’s a big break. It feels a little bit like the end of an era. But that instinct Nancy has, that curiosity and determination, I think it’s just part of her personality. She’s not going to forget that part of herself. I can really see that going further.”
