‘Room 104’ To Close Its Door After Fourth Season

Horror fans will have to check out of Room 104 following this next season of chilling tales.

The popular HBO anthology series will call it quits after its fourth season–which kicks off July 24 at 11 p.m.–runs its normal course, according to Deadline.

The fourth season–which features original episodes of strange goings-on in a hotel room somewhere in America–was filmed last year. Which was fortunate for the cast and crew, who were spared a COVID-19 shutdown that affected so many film and television projects.

Room 104 –the brainchild of Jay and Mark Duplass–is a series of standalone stories that run the gamut from horror and suspense to science-fiction and dark comedy.

The premiere episode of the final season reportedly will be the first time Mark Duplass has a chance to showcase all his talents as writer, director and musician.

Other stories from the upcoming fourth season include one dealing with a woman struggling with a dark past. Another episode, “Night Shift”, showcases two actors who created a horror TV show back in the 1970s and who reunite only to have old tensions resurface, forcing them to discover that their old show was not mere fiction.

The series has received generally positive reviews so far, with one critic writing that Room 104 uses its anthology structure to its advantage, telling a series of short, eclectic stories that hit their mark more often than they miss.”

The series–which debuted on HBO in July 2017–has a long list of executive producers, including Mark and Jay Duplass, Sydney Fleischmann, Mel Eslyn, Tyler Romary and Julian Wass.

The writing staff for the fourth season boasts Mark Duplass, Jenee LaMarque, Lauren Parks, Mel Eslyn, Lauren Budd, Bryan Poyser and Julian Wass.
