According to HBO’s official website, Season 3 of In Treatment is set to air in October 2010!
This fantastic official news follows on more breaking news that In Treatment just won the Rockies Fiction Award (drama category) at Banff Film Festival 2010 [The Banff 2010 website is no longer available on the Internet].
All we can say is that the Rockies judges definitely have good taste.
We are also hearing, unfortunately, that the show has been canceled. HBO has not renewed In Treatment in spite of its popularity, because it has apparently become too challenging to produce at the level of quality we all expect. This means it is too expensive, probably. Also, Gabriel Byrne is rumored to have had enough. And that’s fine. Three seasons in which you are the one person on screen the entire time is probably sufficient. Who’s crying? You’re crying. I’m not crying . . . *sob*
In further Season Three news, Samrat Chakrabarti, who has been tweeting about his role in In Treatment Season 3, tells us that Sonya Walger will be portraying his character’s wife in their episodes with the good doctor. You probably know Ms. Walger from Lost, where she played Penelope Widmore. She has also appeared in several other television series, including Flash Forward, Tell Me That You Love Me, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. However, I mostly love her for doing voice work in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, one of my favorite games (for the PC, of course). She played a pedestrian and pedestrians are very important in that game, I can tell you. Read more at her IMDB page.
Sonya Walger, most recent addition to IT3 cast. Welcome aboard, Ms. Walger!
