A24 and Amazon Prime Video have finally set a release date for their latest adult animation, Hazbin Hotel, a fun TV series for more mature audiences. If you have been looking forward to the release, here’s everything you need to know.
Hazbin Hotel is a new adult animation set in Hell following the princess of the evil underworld, Charlie. Despite being the princess of Hell, Charlie is determined to pursue her goal of dealing with the overpopulation in Hell in a way that no one else would have thought about – rehabilitation.
Overpopulation is a severe issue of Hell, an issue that angels have decided to deal with by imposing a yearly extermination, so Charlie comes up with an idea that gets quite a bit of pushback: to open a hotel that encourages rehabilitation in its patrons, namely that when they are ready to check out, they will be checking out of Hell and into Heaven.
Most of Hell thinks that Charlie’s idea is mockable at best. Still, a few characters support her, including her devoted partner Vaggie and their first test subject (who has yet to check out, by the way), the adult film star Angel Dust.
Luckily for her, a powerful entity named Radio Demon takes notice of her plans and reaches out to support and assist her in her plans, which might now have the chance to become a reality. If you want to read the full synopsis, you can look at CoveredGeekly’s article.
Brilliant Minds Behind The Adult Animation
According to Sportskeeda.com, Hazbin Hotel was picked up by A24 more than three years ago, in August 2020, a year after the pilot had been released on Vivienne Medrano’s YouTube channel, Vivziepop. A24 is an American, Manhattan-based entertainment company that works in film and television production and distribution. It is known for working on incredible horror movies like Talk to Me. It doesn’t veer into the world of animation.
Vivienne Medrano is the brilliant mind behind the highly anticipated adult animated musical comedy. Watching the trailer for Hazbin Hotel, you might think that her work looks incredibly familiar, and it might be from her other adult animation that lives on YouTube, Helluva Boss. Both share her exciting art style and adult language and themes.
Being a musical comedy, Hazbin Hotel features original music and lyrics from amazing artists Andrew Underberg and Sam Haft. It includes incredible voices like Alex Brightman, Amir Talai, Blake Roman, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Darren Criss, Erika Henningsen, Jeremy Jordan, Jessica Vosk, Keith David, Kimiko Glenn, Patina Miller and Stephanie Beatriz.
Four years after the pilot first aired on YouTube, Hazbin Hotel season one will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video on the 19th of January, 2024. It will be available for viewing in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. While the strikes in Hollywood undoubtedly affected the release date and pushed back the original release window of Summer 2023, it’s great to know that we will finally see it in January.
If you have been following the trajectory of the show and are one of the many people getting ready to watch the series when it comes out in January, you could get your hands on one of the Preorder Packages, offering you everything from early access to the first two episodes, an invite to a virtual Q&A with Medrano and the Cast of Hazbin Hotel, and even limited edition merch like keychains, exclusive enamel pins, trading cards and an official playbill for the show.
The humour and adult content of Hazbin Hotel might not be for everyone. Still, it looks like a good laugh with a unique animation style and a big fanbase that is happy that the show is finally coming to Amazon Prime Video.
Hazbin Hotel is an adult animation that was picked up by A24.
It was picked up back in 2020 after the pilot was released to YouTube in 2019, but the Hollywood strikes caused some delays.
Hazbin Hotel will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on the 19th of January, 2024.
