'In Treatment': Back with new stars, new timeslot

Readers often ask me when and if this HBO therapy series will return -- probably the same readers who ask about "Friday Night Lights"! And now I have an answer. "In Treatment" will return to HBO on October 25, with Gabriel Byrne as Dr. Paul Weston but without Dianne Wiest as his therapist. Amy Ryan, interestingly, will be in the cast as Paul's new therapist.

Debra Winger, the much-underused Debra Winger, will be onboard, as a washed-up actress who finds her way to Paul's couch. Lesser known actors Dane DeHaan (as a gay teen) and Irrfan Khan are also in the third season, which will have only four episodes per week -- two on Monday nights and two on Tuesday nights.

I can't wait, to be honest, particularly with Ryan and Winger in the mix. This series demands a commitment from viewers, but it's well worth the time and focus. The payback is enormous. This season, by the way, husband-and-wife team Dan Futterman and Anya Epstein (of the local Epsteins -- as in sister of Theo and daughter of Leslie) will be the new showrunners.
