The Wire alum Amy Ryan will return to HBO this year in the psychotherapy drama In Treatment. Based on a popular Israeli series, In Treatment centers around Gabriel Byrne’s Dr. Paul Weston and his weekly sessions with patients. Deadline reports that Ryan will play Weston’s new therapist since Dianne Wiest, who played Weston’s old therapist, is departing the show. Ryan joins Debra Winger as a new addition to the season three cast.
The series has a flexible shooting schedule, and so will hopefully not preclude a return to The Office for Ryan that was teased at the end of season six. Plus, In Treatment excels at providing actors with award-worthy material, so Ryan has a good shot at a Emmy nomination to go with her Oscar kudos for Gone Baby Gone.
