As HBO announced that it had officially ordered a fourth season of the Emmy-winning drama, In Treatment, Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba has been tapped to topline the revival series.

Aduba will take on the lead role of therapist Dr. Brooke Lawrence, who, in the new season, will see a diverse trio of patients in session as she wrestles with her own issues, according to Deadline.

The season’s third season ended a decade ago.

HBO said production is set to begin in fall “under COVID-19 guidelines.” The series will debut in 2021.

Aduba is best known for playing Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren in Netflix’s OITNB. Speaking to Decider last year, Aduba was protective of her beloved character.

“In the beginning, she was Suzanne to me, and only Suzanne,” she told the outlet. “I took offense when people referred to her as Crazy Eyes. She’s not crazy. She’s misunderstood. She’s unique, as she once said.”

Aduba then spoke of Suzanne being an inspiration for people with mental health issues across the globe.

“I didn’t want to lock her into one place,” she said. “One, because the writers didn’t do that, so why should I? But two, I’ve gotten messages from people from all different sides of the mental health spectrum—a social worker at a prison, a psychiatric nurse, someone who worked in a special needs class at some high school. They would say, ‘I see my son in this character; I see my patient in this character; I see myself in this character.’ And they were always different. I wanted to try to give a voice to as many different sides as I could.”
