The series focuses on Charlie Morningstar, the daughter of Lucifer and princess of Hell, with an almost impossible goal: to help the demons of Hell learn how to be better and get into Heaven.[3][4]

The series was picked up by the independent film company A24. The show's first season came out on January 19, 2024 on Prime Video, and a second season is being worked on.

Premise change

Charlie Morningstar, the princess of Hell, opens a hotel called the "Happy Hotel", where she wants to teach demons of Hell how to be better people, in the hopes of getting them into Heaven. 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 to the overpopulation problem.[5]

With the help of her manager and girlfriend, Vaggie, and their first customer, pornographic film actor Angel Dust, she tries to make her dream come true. Her plan gets the attention of the powerful "Radio Demon", Alastor. He thinks her idea is impossible, but he wants to help Charlie run the hotel because he thinks it's funny.[6] Alastor renames the Happy Hotel the Hazbin Hotel at the end of the pilot.
