The upcoming fourth season of Room 104 will be its final one according to co-creator Mark Duplass and HBO (Creep, The League) at the virtual version of the ATX TV Festival, via Deadline. During the panel, Duplass stated that the fourth season will be “officially our last season until everyone comes in and gives us huge numbers, then we’ll be back for another season,” according to Deadline. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many shows, like HBO’s Room 104, scheduled to be a part of the ATX TV Festival had to adapt to its new virtual format which was held over the weekend. During Room 104’s panel time, Duplass was joined by his executive producers Mel Eslyn (Blue Jay), Sydney Fleischman (The Overnight), in addition to series stars Natalie Morales (Dead to Me, White Collar) and Karan Soni (Deadpool).
Room 104 premiered on HBO in 2017 with a twelve-episode first season. Following its arrival, the horror anthology series continued with two additional seasons and a total of 36 episodes through 2019. The horror anthology series is set in an American hotel, room 104 to be exact, while each episode covers the different events and lives of the characters that pass through its doors while also merging a range of different genres from horror to comedy to thriller. The series has featured the likes of Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Mae Whitman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The DUFF) Paul F. Tompkins (BoJack Horseman), Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (True Detective, Moonlight), Rainn Wilson (The Office), and Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars) in guest spots during the show’s tenure.
HBO announced that the fourth season will be the final season, yet Duplass still wants to keep the show’s fans on their toes for the final twelve episodes. Duplass teased at a potential animated episode in addition to calling this season “the most liberal with how we defined “The Room,” via Deadline. During the ATX panel, Duplass also announced that season four will include actors Kevin Nealon (Weeds), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), and himself experiencing the powers of the mysterious hotel room. Currently, the show is available in its entirety on streaming services Hulu with an HBO subscription and Warnermedia’s new streaming platform HBO Max which is offered at $14.99 per month.
