HBO today revealed the In Treatment release date and teaser trailer, which previews the return of the Emmy-winning drama series. The In Treatment release date has been set for Sunday, May 23 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Mrs. America, Orange Is the New Black) will play the lead role of the therapist at the center of the season, as the observant, empathetic Dr. Brooke Taylor.
The 24-episode season will air on HBO with two back-to-back, half-hour episodes each Sunday and Monday night. The series will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
The reimagining of the series is set in present-day Los Angeles and brings a diverse trio of patients in session with Brooke to help navigate a variety of modern concerns.
Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke will undertake – all while she deals with complications in her own personal life.
In Treatment also stars Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) as Eladio, who works as a home health aide for a wealthy family’s adult son; 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; and John Benjamin Hickey (Jessica Jones) as Colin, a charming millionaire beach bum turned white-collar criminal reckoning with all the ways his life has changed following his recent release from prison;
Also on board are Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria) as Laila, Brooke’s distrustful, teenage client, struggling to carve out her own identity separate from her family’s overbearing expectations; and 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.
In Treatment is produced by HBO Entertainment. The executive producers are 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 and based on the Israeli series, Be‘Tipul, created by Hagai Levi with Ori Sivan & Nir Bergman.
