Gabriel Byrne and Debra Winger
In Treatment will not return for a fourth season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
"It's true that we have no plans to continue with In Treatment as previously formatted," the network said in a statement. "However, we are in continued conversations with the executive producers to find another way to continue telling these rich stories."

Dianne Wiest played Weston's own therapist and mentor.
