HBO series In Treatment, created by Rodrigo Garcia and which ran for three seasons from 2008-2010, has gotten the reboot treatment. The trailer for the rebooted series, which once starred Gabriel Bryne and Dianne Wiest, now stars Uzo Aduba’s as Dr. Brooke Taylor, who is dealing with a trio of patients amid a global pandemic.
The show will be set in present day Los Angeles, and will star Anthony Ramos, John Benjamin Hickey and Quintessa Swindell as Dr. Taylor’s newest patients. Also joining the new season are Liza Colón-Zayas and Joel Kinnaman. The 24-episode season will tackle the global pandemic and the recent societal and cultural shifts in the United States, as well as Dr. Taylor’s personal struggles outside her profession.
Ramos will star as Eladio, a home health aide for a wealthy family’s adult son; Colón-Zayas is Rita, Dr. Taylor’s longtime confidante and friend; John Benjamin Hickey as Colin, a millionaire beach bum turned white-collar criminal; Quintessa Swindell as Laila, Dr. Taylor’s distrustful, teenage client; and Joel Kinnaman as Adam, the doctor’s on-again, off-again boyfriend.
The series returns to the cable network after a 10-year gap and previously won three Emmys for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series and outstanding guest actor in a drama series in 2008. Byrne took home the best actor in a television drama series Golden Globe in 2009.
In Treatment returns May 23 at 9 PM ET with two back-to-back, half-hour episodes airing on both Sunday and Monday night. The series will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
