Helluva Boss is an American adult animated musical comedy web series created, directed, written and produced by Vivienne "VivziePop" Medrano. Despite taking place within the same universe as Hazbin Hotel, also created by Medrano, the series features a different cast of characters and storyline. As Medrano described it, while both shows share the same setting, Hazbin Hotel is about redemption and consequences, while Helluva Boss follows "characters and societies that already exist in Hell" with the main focus on the interpersonal relationship between both characters. The pilot was released on November 25, 2019, while the first episode of the first season, produced by SpindleHorse Toons, was released on October 31, 2020. The first season will be released exclusively to Medrano's YouTube channel like Medrano has done for other animations.

Helluva Boss has various LGBTQ characters, specifically a bisexual demon named Moxxie, and a pansexual demon named Blitzo, as well as a demon named Stolas who is most likely bisexual due to his relations with both men and women. Medrano also reacted positively to a fan idea of a sitcom set in an alternative universe where "Blitzo and Stolas are two single dads getting married". Episode 5 introduced the character Sallie May, Millie's sister, who was confirmed by the show's official twitter to be transgender.
