Showtime's groundbreaking docuseries Couples Therapy is back for a third season, and this season is looking pretty queer.

The show follows world-renowned psychologist and psychoanalyst Dr. Orna Guralnik as she guides couples through real-life therapy sessions. Dr. Guralnik "deftly guides couples through the conflicts – and extraordinary breakthroughs – typically hidden behind closed doors," the official description reads. "The second part of season three follows four new captivating couples wrestling with the confines of long-term relationships: two ex-Mormons struggle with betrayals past and present, a young Palestinian woman desperately tries to adjust to her partners' demand for polyamory, a husband's sexual frustration feeds his wife's insecurities and Dr. Guralnik meets a therapeutic challenge in a man who refuses to face the damage caused by his infidelities."

And the new trailer certainly feels pretty queer. It even begins with one couple telling the therapist that they're meeting with her "because we need to transition to polyamory." Later in the one-minute trailer, another patient also mentions the desire to rework "old-time heteronormative structures."

The Television Critics Association honored the show with an award for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming in 2021.

The second part of season three will have nine new episodes featuring four new couples.

Couples Therapy premieres April 28 on SHOWTIME, with two new episodes every Friday. Watch the trailer below:
