Towards the end of season one, he joins back together with the rest of the party to help protect Eleven who later destroyed the Demogorgon. In season two, Lucas meets Max Mayfield which results in arguing between Dustin Henderson and Lucas about who should get to date her. Later, Lucas grows closer to Max and the begin dating, which leads to Max becoming a Party member. Lucas is threatened by Max's older brother Billy Hargrove, who dislikes Lucas because he's black, but Lucas remained with Max. He later helps the Party and Steve Harrington set fire to the tunnels underneath the town dug by Demodogs, to draw the monsters away from Eleven while she attempted to close The Gate.
