‘Hazbin Hotel’ Creator Vivziepop Teams with Horseless Cowboy on Devilishly Twisted ‘Helluva Boss’ Series
The wildly popular animated web series Helluva Boss is releasing a new season on YouTube this fall with an exciting roster of voice talent, cast and recorded by Horseless Cowboy.
Helluva Boss is a dark comedy animated web series directed, written and produced by Vivienne Medrano, the creator of the incredibly successful animated web series Hazbin Hotel. After posting the pilots for both series to her YouTube channel, “Vivziepop”, the videos became an overnight sensation, and both pilots have amassed a combined 65 million views since their premiere in late 2019. A24, the production company behind Euphoria and The Lighthouse, announced on August 7 that it plans to pick up Hazbin Hotel for a full series order.
The new season of Helluva Boss will begin with eight episodes which tell the story of a group of eccentric imps who attempt to start their own assassination agency by using a magical book which allows them to jump between Hell and Earth. The creative consultancy Horseless Cowboy partnered with Medrano to cast and record actors who could lend their singing voices to the musical numbers while also delivering vocal performances in the devilishly twisted comic tone that the series requires.
“We were thrilled to partner with a brilliant young creator on such a unique series. Fans of the pilot will enjoy it as we further explore the world and introduce new characters voiced by some wonderful actors,” said Timothy Cubbison, General Manager of Horseless Cowboy. “The show is special and has developed a loyal following. In fact, some well-known actors even reached out about getting involved, so fans should expect a couple fun surprises during the season.”
The cast includes co-writer and star Brandon Rogers (Magic Funhouse!, Blame the Hero), Richard Steven Horvitz (Invader Zim, The Angry Beavers), Erica Lindbeck (The Owl House, Your lie in April English dub), and several surprise guest stars.
Medrano and Horseless Cowboy are anticipating a great response from fans to the premiere of the next episode of the first season of Helluva Boss in the fall of 2021. The entire first season will be released on Medrano’s VivziePop YouTube channel.
