It’s official. HBO has ordered a second season of In Treatment. This time they’ll be shooting in New York, making it an easy commute for Gabriel Byrne, the star of the show, who lives in the city.
HBO had been widely expected to greenlight a second season of the show, but it took some time for the paybox to cut a fresh pact with Byrne, biz insiders said.
“In Treatment” is also due for a fresh influx of supporting cast members, as most of Weston’s patients from season one will not be returning other than possibly for brief appearances in a handful of episodes. An HBO rep said deals with new and potential returning cast members were still being worked out.
Production of “Treatment” will move from L.A. to Gotham when lensing begins again in the fall. Shift was influenced in part by the fact that Byrne lives in New York, as well as by the lure of New York’s new city and state tax incentives for film and TV productions.
Series has also added an exec producer-showrunner in Warren Leight, a Gotham-based playwright who has spent the past few seasons as exec producer of NBC/USA Network’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”
