Room 104 will be returning for a third season on HBO


According to reports, Room 104 creators, Mark and Jay Duplass, have already filmed the third season of the show, with a fourth in the works.

The HBO anthology series, Room 104, has already filmed its third season, Deadline reports, with a fourth hopefully following suit. Creators Mark and Jay Duplass are in talks with HBO’s programming heads to take the series forward.

"“We are talking to them about It,” HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys told Deadline. “I’m open timing-wise; we’re going to do more.”"

Set in one motel room with new characters and stories featuring in every episode, Room 104 debuted in 2017 to much acclaim. The range of storylines led to its sophomore season, which aired in late 2018, bagging big-name stars including Michael Shannon, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Judy Greer, Rainn Wilson and Star Trek: Discovery’s Mary Wiseman.

No two episodes are alike, and season two dealt with several relevant topics, including grief, depression and the #MeToo movement, though the highlight for many was the much talked about Brian Tyree Henry-starrer ‘Arnold’. Airing halfway through the season, the episode was a 30-minute long rap video and Julian Wass’ directorial debut. Despite a few hiccups (we’re looking at you, ‘Hungry’), the second season was an overall improvement on the first.

As all good shows should be, Room 104 is also a hot-bed for behind-the-scenes talents, with several first-time directors getting the opportunity to helm an episode. Some of the actors have also joined the fray, including Natalie Morales, who starred in season two’s ‘A Nightmare’ and later directed ‘Artificial’.

No information has been released about the cast and crew for the new season or the release date for the same. Season two aired two episodes back-to-back on Fridays at 11:30 pm, which was a tough ask for viewers tuning in to watch live. Hopefully, the new season will air at a better time, especially since the pressure is on to top the second season’s mostly refreshing take on situational drama. It will be good to see greater representation on screen in the coming seasons, and hopefully, more material that is relevant and poignant to viewers.
