HBO’s Latest TCA 2021 Announcements
Here is a look at some more HBO announcements made at today’s TCA event:
IN TREATMENT: The Emmy®-winning drama series IN TREATMENT returns for its fourth season this May on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

The reimagining of the series is set in present-day Los Angeles and brings a diverse trio of patients in session with Brooke to help navigate a variety of modern concerns. Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke will undertake — all while she deals with complications in her own personal life.
IN TREATMENT also stars Anthony Ramos (“Hamilton”) as Eladio, who works as a home health aide for a wealthy family’s adult son; Liza Colón-Zayas (“David Makes Man”) as Rita, Brooke’s longtime confidant and friend who supports Brooke as she contends with her own demons after a life-altering loss; John Benjamin Hickey (“Jessica Jones”) as Colin, a charming millionaire beach bum turned white-collar criminal reckoning with all the ways his life has changed following his recent release from prison; Quintessa Swindell (“Euphoria”) as Laila, Brooke’s distrustful, teenage client, struggling to carve out her own identity separate from her family’s overbearing expectations; and Joel Kinnaman (“For All Mankind”) as Adam, Brooke’s long-time on-again, off-again boyfriend who has resurfaced to create further complexity for her.
