In Treatment

10 years after the third season finale, the hugely successful drama series returns for its fourth season with Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba leading the way.

Aduba plays Dr Brooke Taylor, the new therapist at the centre of the season.

Set in present-day Los Angeles, the new series sees a diverse trio of patients in session, with the onset of the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts all on the table.

Janicza Bravo, Uta Briesewitz, Julian Farino, Karyn Kusama and Michelle MacLaren co-star alongside Aduba in the run.
