HBO has given an official greenlight for a second season of new drama In Treatment. The series, which stars Gabriel Byrne as a psychotherapist, revolves around his character’s (Paul Weston) sessions with his patients and his own therapy appointments with fellow therapist Gina Toll (Dianne Wiest).
The show is based on an Israeli TV series of the same name. It debuted on HBO in January with 43 half-hour episodes on a Monday-Friday basis. Because of lower than expected ratings, HBO is expected to order 35 episodes for season two.
