Noa Tishby will also reprise his role as co-exec producer alongside franchise newcomer Joanne Toll.

Jennifer Schuur, Joshua Allen and Melissa Bernstein will also join the series as exec producers for season four.

Schuur and Allen (Empire) will serve as co-showrunners on the series.

The original show, also starring Dianne Wiest, revolved around Paul meeting several patients.
