Ten years after the season-three finale, HBO brings back critically acclaimed drama In Treatment on Sunday, May 23 with Uzo Aduba (FX’s Mrs. America, Netflix’s Orange is the New Black) playing the series’ central therapist, Dr. Brooke Taylor, a role that was played by Gabriel Byrne as Dr. Paul Weston in its first three seasons.
The 24-episode season will air with two back-to-back half-hour episodes each Sunday and Monday night and be available to stream on HBO Max. Seasons one through three aired as a five-nights-a-week event series with a total of 106 episodes produced.
The series’ reimagining is set in present-day Los Angeles, as opposed to the first three seasons’ setting in Baltimore and then Brooklyn. Dr. Taylor will see three regulars—home healthcare worker Eladio (Anthony Ramos, In the Heights, Hamilton); charming millionaire beach bum Colin (John Benjamin Hickey (Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Showtime’s The Big C); and distrustful teenager Laila (Quintessa Swindell, HBO’s Euphoria).
Lisa Colón-Zayas (OWN’s David Makes Man) plays Rita, Taylor’s longtime confidante and friend who helps her cope with a life-altering loss. Joel Kinnaman (Apple TV+’s For All Mankind) plays Adam, Taylor’s long-time on-again, off-again boyfriend.
In Treatment originally debuted on HBO in 2008, starring Byrne and Dianne Wiest as his therapist. The Emmy-winning series garnered Peabody and AFI Awards.
In Treatment is produced by HBO Entertainment and executive produced by Jennifer Schuur, Joshua Allen, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Melissa Bernstein and Hagai Levi; Joanne Toll and Noa Tishby serve as co-executive producers. In Treatment is produced in association with Leverage, Closest to the Hole Productions and Sheleg. It’s based on the Israeli series, Be‘Tipul, created by Levi with Ori Sivan and Nir Bergman.
