April 18, 2013 – present
The show was renewed for a fourth season, which began production on June 5, 2017. The fourth season is scheduled to air sometime in 2019.
- Gary Bunda (Henry Zebrowski) – a bumbling employee in Hell whose schemes to recruit humans to Hell often fail.
- Claude Vernon (Craig Rowin, Season 1-2, Season 3 (second half)) – Gary's younger and more-respected intern who often shows him up at work. Was written out after season two, though no mention is made of what became of him. However, he has returned in the second half of season three, starting with the episode "Golden Fiddle Week".
- "Satan", a.k.a. *Darren Farley (Matt Servitto) – the strict ruler of Hell who shows Claude more respect than Gary. Originally presented as THE Satan, who rules all of Hell, in seasons 1-2, in season three it is revealed that he is a mortal by the name of Darren Farley, who rose up the demon ranks to middle management, and that "Satan" is a title given by the real Satan to such subordinates. Farley rules the eleventh circle of Hell (for "Miscellaneous" sins).
- Lucas (Dana Snyder, Seasons 1-2) – Gary's former roommate who is still alive. He appears annoyed when Gary returns to earth to recruit him.
- Benji (Dan Triandiflou) – one of Gary's co-workers in Hell. He's usually in charge of making the orientation and 'how to' videos of Hell. Despite his cheery and rather friendly personality, however, he's a rapist and child molester.
- Troy (Dana Snyder, Season 3) – Gary's co-worker in Hell, that replaced Claude in season three. Unlike Claude, Troy tends to end up suffering alongside Gary when their various schemes backfire and in one episode, is demoted to "tortured soul" status. Troy is a completely different character from Lucas, who Snyder played in seasons 1-2.
- Eddie (Eddie Pepitone) – a tortured soul. He is often seen as the victim of various acts of sadism brought on by the demons or Satan himself. He gets briefly promoted to demon status when Troy is demoted, in season three, but Eddie was traumatized by the horrors inflicted upon him by the other demons and having a heart of gold, he failed to live up to the job. He still won out over Troy and earned his place as a real demon. However, a behind the scenes "real life" scene shows that a hasty rewrite was done after Eddie Pepitone refused to go through the make-up procedures.
