After struggling with a three-year delay due to shooting location conflicts and the COVID -19 pandemic, the long-awaited fourth season of the critically-acclaimed series Stranger Things has finally arrived on Netflix. Featuring two volumes, the first story follows the Hawkins gang's latest dive into the Upside Down and also introduced the show's most horrifying villain named Vecna, played by Jamie Campbell Bower.

(Warning: This article contains spoilers for Stranger Things 4)

Volume 1 reveals a very shocking twist with Victor Creel’s son, Henry, as he was later on revealed as Vecna’s original identity. After Henry massacred his own family and framed his father, he then proceeded to enhance his telekinesis powers. He signed up to be the very first subject of the Russians but murdered all of them when trying to break Eleven out from the facility.

The latest Stranger Things Season 4 behind-the-scenes video breaks down Jamie Campbell Bower's rigorous transformation into the menacing villain Vecna.

Certainly, no one could ever speculate that Bower is the same actor behind Vecna. As revealed in the video, it took him an immense amount of time to fit in the several layers of prosthetics. Don't be fooled by the sped-up video, because according to reports, artists took between seven and eight hours for Bower to fit in the whole prosthetic body suit.

There are much more things to anticipate with Bower's Henry Creel or widely known as Vecna in the upcoming second volume. Vecna places the whole Hawkins gang’s fate in jeopardy that even the showrunners are teasing that Volume 2 might see the death of a beloved fan character, while Noah Schapp also frankly admitted that one of them will die.

Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1 is now available to stream on Netflix, while Volume 2 arrives on July 1.
