In Treatment Season Five in Brazil


A fifth season of Sessão de Terapia, the Brazilian version of In Treatment, has debuted on Globoplay.

A Globoplay original produced by Moonshot Pictures in partnership with GNT, Sessão de Terapia season five sees Caio Barone (Selton Mello) face new challenges. Without Sofia, he needs to search for a new professional to attend to him. This is when Davi Greco (Rodrigo Santoro) arrives, a therapist who takes care of adults, but, most of all, he takes care of children—which creates tension between them.

The first two seasons were adapted from the Dori Media Group-distributed Israeli format Be Tipul. In the third season, screenwriter Jaqueline Vargas, producer Roberto d’Avila (CEO of Moonshot Pictures) and director and actor Selton Mello developed something new. The fourth season saw a partnership with Globoplay develop and resulted in some of the highest ratings achieved by the format in Brazil.

Original Brazilian scripts for 35 episodes of In Treatment are available for licensing and adaptations. The first 80 episodes of In Treatment were adapted from two Israeli seasons, and the new 35 scripts link to previous seasons. After that, two new seasons of 35 episodes each follow a new therapist, his patients and a new supervisor.

Nadav Palti, CEO and president of Dori Media Group, commented: “We are delighted to see the resounding success of the new season of In Treatment in Brazil after the outstanding performance of all previous seasons. In Treatment demystifies professional therapy without trivializing patients’ suffering. The format’s success has lasted more than a decade and reflects In Treatment’s status as one of the best Israeli television series produced and one of the most replicable due to its global relevance.”

D’Avila, CEO of Moonshot Pictures Brazil, commented: “In Treatment has really resonated with Brazilian audiences and is one of the most popular dramas ever produced in the country. The show continues to significantly raise the quality of similar worldwide formats, thanks to its ability to be replicated and remain relevant to the Brazilian audience in today’s competitive market. In Treatment encourages and promotes the thinking, acceptance and healthy articulation of feelings which is challenging for most people in present times.”
