ROOM 104 returns for its fourth and final season FRIDAY, JULY 24 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Created by Mark and Jay Duplass (HBO's "Animals." and "Togetherness"), the late-night, half-hour anthology series returns with 12 new episodes, each telling a unique and unexpected tale of the characters who pass through a single room of a typical American chain motel.

Stories and characters featured in season four include: an estranged performer giving a one-night-only performance; a woman battling her dark past with addiction; a dollhouse; transporting back in time; and more.
