Stephanie Beatriz, Keith David and Kimiko Glenn are set to star in the new adult animated series “Hazbin Hotel.” The first season will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in January 2024.
Prime Video unveiled the full voice cast at New York Comic Con on Saturday, along with a teaser of an original song called “Happy Day in Hell.” Season 1 series regulars include Beatriz as Vaggie, David as Husk, Glenn as Niffty, Erika Henningsen as Charlie, Alex Brightman as Sir Pentious, Blake Roman as Angel Dust, Amir Talai as Alastor, with Christian Borle and Joel Perez rounding out the voice ensemble as demons of Hell, Vox and Valentino, respectively.
The animated musical comedy series follows Charlie (Henningsen), the princess of Hell, as she attempts to rehabilitate demons to peacefully reduce overpopulation in her kingdom. Per the series logline, “After a yearly extermination imposed by angels, [Charlie] opens a hotel in the hopes that patrons will be ‘checking out’ into Heaven. While most of Hell mocks her goal, her devoted partner Vaggie (Beatriz), and their first test subject, adult film-star Angel Dust (Roman), stick by her side. When a powerful entity known as the ‘Radio Demon’ reaches out to assist Charlie in her endeavors, her crazy dream is given a chance to become a reality.”
“Hazbin Hotel” is based on creator Medrano’s animated pilot released on YouTube in 2019, which amassed more than 89 million views.
Medrano serves as executive producer and directed all episodes. Joel Kuwahara, Dana Tafoya-Cameron and Scott Greenberg executive produce via A24, with Greenberg only serving as EP for the first season. “Hazbin Hotel” is produced by A24 and Fox Entertainment’s Emmy award-winning animation studio Bento Box Entertainment.
