Uzo Aduba to star in "In Treatment" reimagining for HBO

Actress Uzo Aduba, seen here attending the "American Pastoral" premiere on September 9, 2016. is set to lead a new iteration of "In Treatment" for HBO.

Hollywood is Hollywooding like it's 2008.

Roughly two weeks after we learned that "Dexter" is coming back to Showtime, HBO has announced a new iteration of "In Treatment," set to star Uzo Aduba.

The project, announced Tuesday, is being billed both as a "reimagining" of the show and a fourth season.

Aduba, best known for her Emmy-winning roles on Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black" and "Mrs. America," will star as Dr. Brooke Lawrence, who is "observant" and "empathetic," according to a press release from HBO, which like CNN is owned by WarnerMedia.

Additional cast will be announced at a later date, HBO said.

"In Treatment" originally starred Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest and ran for three seasons from 2008-2010.

HBO said production is set to begin in fall "under COVID-19 guidelines" and is scheduled to debut in 2021.
