HBO Stays In Treatment

Nine weeks of therapy wasn't enough for HBO. The network has decided to renew In Treatment for a second season.

The show, which stars Gabriel Byrne as a therapist, is one of the more unusual programs to appear on HBO in recent years. The half-hour show aired five days a week, Monday through Friday, with each day focusing on a session with a different patient. For the first four days of the week, Byrne's character led the sessions; on Friday, it was his turn on the couch with his own therapist (Dianne Wiest).

The show wasn't highly rated, but HBO has already made a couple of changes for this second season, including bringing in famed playwright and producer Warren Leight to run things and moving the show's production to New York (though the actual therapy practice will keep its setting near Washington, DC). So far, only Byrne and Wiest are on board for the second season, and it's unclear whether any of the patients from the first season will continue on or if it will be a whole new cast.

I thought In Treatment was a great concept, even if I couldn't always keep up with it, and I'll be checking out the season one DVD this Fall to catch up on the things I missed. Season two is scheduled to start production in a few months and make its debut in early 2009. Will you be watching? Or is In Treatment just too big of a commitment?

This is a very grown-up series, and it's not for everyone. I really enjoyed it, and wish I still had HBO.

Oh, how I wanted to love this show - but I just couldn't. My DVR was filled to bursting and I just couldn't muster the interest. LOVE Gabriel Byrne in this role, though.

The worst show ever, second to "Tell me you love me" HBO is trying to bore us to death!

I will be watching. I thought all the patients were interesting with the exception of the couple. Good deal, HBO needs something, because Showtime shows are kicking their buts.

I will be watching....! I loved season one, and even if I didn't catch it every night, was able to catch up with on demand. Really amazing acting, great characters, and it was definitely addicting. I am very happy there will be a season 2!
