Hell, also known as the Underworld and Sheol, is an inter-dimensional plane of existence where demons, fallen angels, and the souls of damned humans reside. The souls that died are sent there to be tortured by the other demons for the rest of eternity. Furcifer implies that some souls who are sent to Hell can become demons as well. Certain parts of Hell are extremely hot, according to John Constantine. It is ruled by the Triumvirate of Hell, but nearly fell under Neron's rule in 2019.
After Neron's death, Astra releases the Encores (infamous evil-doers who died, came to Hell, and resurrected from it to continue with their misdeeds) and plots secretly against the Triumvirate of Hell to become the new queen of Hell.

In 2014, during a resurrection spell for Natalie Logue, John Constantine accidentally summoned a demon who possessed Natalie's daughter, Astra. John then attempted to summon a greater demon, Nergal, to expel the lesser demon out of her. However, Nergal dragged her away, damning her to Hell.
When John Constantine turned the Devil's acetate dark magic upon itself and banished it back to Hell, a great red-lit pathway downwards into the ground was left in wake of the acetate's "falling" into Hell.
In 2018, John Constantine and the Legends began utilizing a spell that sent magical creatures they encountered to Hell. These beings were formerly kept in an extra-dimensional prison alongside the demon Mallus. Notable beings that the Legends have encountered and sent to Hell include Unicorns and Tabitha. When Astra Logue began resurrecting some of history's most notorious villains, Constantine began traveling to and from Hell at will by ingesting blood or other essences from the so-called "Encores" the Legends captured.
Astra told her origin in an attempt to join a sorority.
