LOS ANGELES – February 23, 2021 – SHOWTIME has released the trailer for the second season of COUPLES THERAPY, the critically acclaimed docuseries providing viewers an authentic and visceral look at weekly therapy sessions with world-class therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik. The nine-episode season will premiere Sunday, April 18, with the first two episodes airing back-to-back at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. New episodes will continue to air back-to-back on Sunday nights for four weeks, with the finale airing on May 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The entire season will also release for on-demand streaming on SHOWTIME and across all SHOWTIME partner platforms on April 18.

COUPLES THERAPY follows eight months of therapy sessions with Dr. Guralnik as she deftly guides couples through honest confrontation with each other, revealing real-life struggles and extraordinary breakthroughs. The second season features three entirely new couples working through intense conflicts: a single mother’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to examine if the father is actually the man she wants to be with, a woman confronts her husband for failing to deliver the life she wants, and the raw trauma of near-fatal alcoholism reveals unexpected consequences for a young gay couple. The season also sheds an intimate light on at-home confinement after last year’s COVID-19 shutdown, forcing every couple – and Dr. Guralnik herself – to examine profound changes within their daily lives.

COUPLES THERAPY is produced by Edgeline Films for SHOWTIME and directed by Kim Roberts and Josh Kriegman. Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg and Eli Despres serve as executive producers.
