HBO is spending more time in “Room 104.”
The anthology series from brothers Jay and Mark Duplass has been renewed for a second season, the network announced Thursday. The show focuses on the people who spend time in one particular room of an American motel, with the characters and tone changing for each episode.
“Jay and Mark Duplass are gifted storytellers who have brilliantly reinvented the anthology series for the modern era,” said HBO executive vice president Amy Gravitt. “The format of ‘Room 104’ offers endless possibilities and opportunities for new talent to experiment, and I look forward to seeing where the series takes us.”
The show is currently airing its 12-episode first season, which premiered last month. Actors who have appeared on Season 1 include James Van Der Beek, Mae Whitman, Nat Wolff, Orlando Jones, Keir Gilchrist, Philip Baker Hall, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass.
“We can’t remember the last time we had so much fun making something,” said Jay and Mark Duplass in a joint statement. “We’re excited to go even further down the rabbit hole with this show.”
The Duplass brothers created “Room 104,” and they executive produce with Sydney Fleischmann and Mel Eslyn. Tyler Romery is a producer.
