The final eight In Treatment episodes will be available to stream early, beginning Monday, June 14 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT, on HBO Max timed to the premiere of two new episodes on HBO.
The advance rollout provides HBO Max subscribers an early opportunity to watch the entire new season. The series will continue to air on HBO with two back-to-back, half-hour episodes each Sunday and Monday night until the season finale on June 28.
Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Mrs. America, Orange Is the New Black) plays the lead role of Dr. Brooke Taylor, the observant and empathetic therapist at the center of the season.
The reimagining of the series is set in present-day Los Angeles and brings a diverse trio of patients into session with Brooke as they navigate a variety of relevant concerns.
Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke undertakes – all while dealing with complications in her own personal life.
The new In Treatment episodes also star Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) as Eladio, who works as a home health aide for a wealthy family’s adult son; and Liza Colón-Zayas (David Makes Man) as Rita, Brooke’s longtime confidante and friend who supports Brooke as she contends with her own demons after a life-altering loss.
Also starring are John Benjamin Hickey (Jessica Jones) as Colin, a charming millionaire beach bum turned white-collar criminal reckoning with all the ways the world has changed now that he’s been released from prison; and Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria) as Laila, Brooke’s distrustful, teenage client, struggling to carve out her own identity separate from her family’s overbearing expectations.
Rounding out the cast is Joel Kinnaman (For All Mankind) as Adam, Brooke’s long-time on-again, off-again boyfriend who has resurfaced to create further complexity for her.
In Treatment originally debuted on HBO in 2008, starring Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest. The Emmy-winning series also garnered Peabody and AFI Awards wins.
