IN TREATMENT Renewed for Season 2

UPDATE: At this time, we’ve been told of only two actors for Season 2: Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest, both returning from the inaugural season. As the regular “Monday through Friday” couch potatoes are announced, you’ll read it here. Stay tuned.

Gabriel Byrne in In TreatmentORIGINAL POST
HBO has just announced that In Treatment, the shrink-in-session series with the great Gabriel Byrne, has been officially renewed for a second season. The first episode is scheduled for Fall 2009.

This is a welcome achievement for the show and HBO Entertainment, after the show was universally slagged for slim ratings when it first aired. Right off the bat, Broadcasting & Cable reported on the premiere’s lowest-ever ratings.

But, of course, you gotta teach the press what they don’t know. In this case, that means the value of “cumulative ratings,” as in the number of total viewers, including reruns. For In Treatment, that has even more meaning, since the show was available on more media, in a more timely fashion, than any previous series. (When’s the last time a dramatic fictional TV series aired daily?)

Between In Treatment and Tell Me You Love Me, HBO could make a surge with series that appeal to both genders. As usual, hang here for the details.

    I’m so sad we have to wait so long for the next installment. I enjoyed this show a great deal. How can we find out if this information is correct?!?

    All the information we have says these details are correct. Some reports list the second season as premiering in 2009 — and we have no reason to believe it won’t be in the fall. We’ll keep you updated!

    Yeah, I feel the same way. But hey, they gotta shoot them before we can watch them…

    My mom visited after my daughter’s birth, and she just kept watching episode after episode with On Demand. (She did the same years earlier with The Sopranos.)

    I was one of those who did not miss an episode last year. The return of Season Two has got my full attention and viewership. i was enamored with HBO for its brave and unusual episode airing (30mins/every night) and then absolutely enthralled with the writing and acting. so far Season Two is shaping up to surpass the former. the new schedule is more satisfying to me. I would rather have a big chunk than a little taste..even if I have to wait six days between. count me in as one of the devoted. This is first rate television.
