It will now officially premiere on Channel 4 this September, as teased in a new promo video called ‘FLY’.

In other TV horror news, the makeup artists on Stranger Things recently revealed they were inspired by Game Of Thrones for Vecna.
BAFTA-winning designer Barrie Gower explained to Digital Spy that Matt and Ross Duffer had looked to the villainous character from the HBO show for inspiration for Jamie Campbell-Bower’s character Vecna
“Their brief, really – they were fans of our work from Game Of Thrones, and the character we did, the Night King,” Gower explained.
He added: “I think they were after a menacing character, and somebody who had a similar presence to the Night King. Obviously Vecna has a lot of dialogue, which the Night King doesn’t.”
Vol.2 of Stranger Things season four premieres on Netflix on July 1.
