HBO is officially returning to treatment.

In Treatment is returning for a fourth season, with Uzo Aduba (Mrs. AmericaOrange Is the New Black) set to star. Production will begin this fall under COVID-19 guidelines, and the new episodes of the half-hour drama will air in 2021 on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max.

Three-time Emmy winner Aduba will star as the therapist at the center of the season, "the observant, empathetic" Dr. Brooke Lawrence, who will be dealing with her own issues while treating "a diverse trio of patients." Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The original In Treatment premiered in 2008 and ran for three seasons. It starred Gabriel Byrne (as the therapist, Dr. Paul Weston) and Dianne Wiest. Wiest and guest actor Glynn Turman won Emmys and Byrne received a Golden Globe.
