HBO announced today that In Treatment is being revived for a fourth season. The good news comes a few months after rumors started circulating that the cable network was exploring options to bring the acclaimed drama back for another run.
The half-hour series first premiered in 2008, airing three lengthy seasons that totaled over 100 episodes. The show starred Gabriel Byrne as Dr. Paul Weston, with episodes following his weekly therapy sessions with his complex patients.
For Season 4, Uzo Aduba is stepping into the starring role as the observant and empathetic Dr. Brooke Lawrence, who struggles with issues of her own while treating a diverse trio of patients.
Production on Season 4 of In Treatment is expected to kick off shortly, with a premiere slated for sometime in 2021.

But it's a wise choice to get another therapist character for the protagonist. The story with Bryne's character spiraled out of control. It was proof of the old adage that most therapists get into the business because they need therapy more than most of their patients.
