Season 1

An unusual and emotional new series, In Treatment brings dynamic focus to a staple of modern society – the psychotherapy session.

Adapted from a popular Israeli series, the show follows psychoanalyst Paul Weston through his week, capturing a session each night with his patients – Laura, Alex, Sophie and married couple Jake and Amy – before concluding each Friday in the office of Paul’s own therapist, Gina.

Stepping inside the tangled mind of a man who counsels others for a living, In Treatment renders an intricate portrayal of the experts we rely on for perspective.

Executive-produced by Hagai Levi, Rodrigo Garcia, Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg, the first season of In Treatment stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, Josh Charles as Jake, Embeth Davidtz as Amy, Melissa George as Laura, Blair Underwood as Alex, Mia Wasikowska as Sophie, Dianne Wiest as Dr. Gina Toll and Michelle Forbes as Paul's wife Kate.

Season 2

In season two, Paul has moved his practice to Brooklyn, following his divorce from his wife Kate.

Rebuilding his practice while wrestling with some of the demons he left behind — including a lawsuit filed by the father of Alex, a patient who died last year — Paul commutes back to Maryland every Friday to see his children and to continue his own sessions with Dr. Gina Toll (Dianne Wiest).

His new clients include Mia, April, Oliver (and sometimes his divorcing parents) and Walter.

Executive-produced by Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Warren Leight, Hagai Levi, Paris Barclay and Rodrigo Garcia and co-executive producer Noa Tishby, In Treatment 2 stars Gabriel Byrne as Paul, Hope Davis as Mia, Alison Pill as April, Aaron Grady Shaw as Oliver, John Mahoney as Walter, Dianne Wiest as Dr. Gina Toll and Michelle Forbes as Paul's wife Kate.

Oliver's parents are played by Russell Hornsby as Luke and Sherri Saum as Bess.

Season 3

Season Three of In Treatment follows psychoanalyst Paul Weston over seven consecutive weeks of therapy - for his patients, and himself.

Frances is a former stage and screen star, struggling with her lines for a major Broadway role, while coping with her sister's terminal breast cancer - and the implications this might have on her own health.

Sunil, a native of Calcutta, has moved in with his son in Brooklyn, but struggles with life in America. He disapproves of the way his son and daughter-in-law are raising their children - and suspects his daughter-in-law may be cheating on his son.

Jesse, a gay teen, wrestles with his identity and his relationship with his adoptive parents. His birth mother reintroduces herself into his life with tragic consequences.

Paul himself seeks the guidance of a younger psychoanalyst, Adele. Recent struggles with insomnia and a recurrent dream are telling Paul he may have inherited Parkinson's disease from his father. He's frustrated with his patients, coming to terms with his recent divorce, and his teenage son Max has moved in with him.

In Treatment offers an intimate look at the tangled mind of a man who counsels others for a living.

Gabriel Byrne returns as Dr. Paul Weston, joined by new cast members Dane DeHaan, Irrfan Khan, Amy Ryan and Debra Winger.
