Channel 4 has released a trailer for upcoming series Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, which builds on the cult YouTube show, which has been viewed over a quarter of a billion times.

Blink Industries’ part-educational programming, part-existential nightmare, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a mixed-media trip that moves from kids-show pastiche to fever-dream horror in the blink of an eye.

The Channel 4 series will follow Red Guy, Yellow Guy and Duck as they continue their disastrous learning journey. This puppet musical extravaganza is helmed by original creators Becky Sloan, Joseph Pelling & Baker Terry.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared,  will launch on Channel 4 in September this year.
