Finally, the doors of the Hazbin Hotel are opened and the first demonic guests are ready to be rehabilitated. The long-awaited animated series comes from Vivienne Medrano, the host behind the popular VivziePop YouTube channel and webcomic Zoophobia.
The pilot for Hotel in Hazbin launched in 2019 on YouTube and has gathered a very large fan base. It was picked up by A24 for a full series in 2020. In 2020, the companion series Boss from hell posted on YouTube. The action takes place in the same world, but follows a different set of characters.
Hotel in Hazbin centers around a hotel in Hell, where Charlie, a princess from Hell, seeks to rehabilitate demons instead of killing them. It is an adult animated comedy, joining Prime Video’s other adult animated offerings like Invincible And The Legend of Vox Machina. Oh, and it’s also a musical!
The official synopsis of Hotel in Hazbin is inferior to:
Hotel in Hazbin follows Charlie, the princess of Hell, as she pursues her seemingly impossible goal of rehabilitating demons in order to peacefully reduce overpopulation in her kingdom. After an annual extermination imposed by angels, she opens a hotel in the hopes that guests will “go” to heaven. While most of Hell scoffs at his goal, his devoted partner Vaggie and their first test subject, adult film star Angel Dust, stay by his side. When a powerful entity known as the “Radio Demon” reaches out to help Charlie in his endeavors, his crazy dream has a chance to come true.
The first four episodes were released on Prime Video on January 12, with the remainder streaming weekly until February 4.
