Featuring new characters and different storylines, and changing up genres in each episode, the series offers more intriguing, unexpected tales about a room at an average American hotel in the brand-new third season.

Created by Jay and Mark Duplass (Animals, Togetherness), anthology series Room 104 returns with 12 new episodes. The room stays the same but every episode features a different story, with the tone, plot, characters, and time period changing with each instalment. There’s even a documentary episode this season.

Seasons 1-2 are also on Showmax and, together, all three anthology seasons make for intriguing, quirky viewing in bite-sized, 30-minute episodes.

Season 3’s cast includes Luke Wilson (The Goldfinch), Sam Richardson (Veep), Aasif Mandvi (Blue Bloods) and Cobie Smulders (Avengers, How I Met Your Mother).

About the third season, IndieWire writes that “Room 104 remains one of the best actor showcases on TV.”
