Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba stars in the first trailer for the long-awaited continuation of In Treatment.

The psychotherapy drama was originally fronted by Hereditary's Gabriel Byrne, who played Dr Paul Weston across its three-season run between 2008 and 2010.

Now though, Aduba – perhaps best known for playing Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren in the aforementioned Netflix show – is set to take centre stage.

In season 4, she brings Dr Brooke Lawrence to life, over a decade after HBO confirmed that it would not be renewing the series as it was – airing five nights a week – but was discussing how to bring it back in a different format.

This new outing will only be broadcast twice a week, with each episode centring on Lawrence's sessions with her patients.

While performers such as Glynn Turman and Dianne Wiest featured throughout its original stint, Hamilton's Anthony Ramos, Liza Colón-Zayas (The Purge: Election Year) and John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C) bulk out the star-studded cast this time round.

Trinkets actor Quintessa Swindell, who will next be seen opposite Dwayne Johnson in DC superhero movie Black Adam, and Joel Kinnaman (The Suicide Squad) are also involved.

Since being catapulted into the spotlight with OITNB in 2013, Aduba has appeared in titles such as Steven Universe and Mrs America – the latter of which saw her win a Primetime Emmy for her performance as real-life politician Shirley Chisholm.

In Treatment will premiere on HBO and HBO Max on May 23 in the US, with new episodes every Sunday and Monday. It has yet to confirm a UK release date.
