Amazon Prime has premiered the new trailer for Bento Box, MGM Studios and A24’s adult animated musical comedy series “Hazbin Hotel”.
The series follows Charlie Morningstar (Erika Henningsen), the princess of Hell, as she sets about fulfilling her seemingly impossible dream of opening a hotel called the ‘Happy Hotel’ which aims to rehabilitate sinners.
Due to overpopulation, Hell goes through an annual purge once a year, where angels descend from Heaven and kill demons.
Charlie finds this upsetting, and wants to find a more peaceful solution. Her goal is to have her clients ‘check out’ from Hell as redeemed souls.
But when her proposal on live television goes awry, her plan attracts the attention of the powerful “Radio Demon” Alastor (Amir Talal) who, despite finding her belief in redemption laughable, wants to help Charlie run the hotel for his own amusement.
Stephanie Beatriz, Blake Roman, Keith David, Alex Brightman, Kimiko Glenn, Joel Perez, and Christian Borle also star in the series which hails from Vivienne Medrano.
The project was picked up to series by A24 in August 2020 after the pilot’s online success on VivziePop’s YouTube Channel. The first season premieres January 19th with four episodes dropping followed by two episodes weekly through February 2nd.
A second season renewal has already been handed out.
