'Web Therapy' to return for another session next year

It looks like Friends star Lisa Kudrow won't be in need of counseling anytime soon. Showtime has just renewed her comedy series Web Therapy for a third season to premiere next year.

Starring Kudrow as Fiona Wallice, a self-professed and self-serving psychotherapist who treats patients for three minutes via webcam, Web Therapy began in 2008 as a largely-improvised online sitcom. In April of 2010, Showtime announced plans to adapt the online episodes for broadcast on television with extra scenes being shot, and the show's first season on TV premiered in July 2011. The second season followed with 11 episodes airing this past summer and saw an increase in ratings, up 21% over Season 1. Like Season 2, Season 3 will likely be comprised of at least 10 half-hour episodes, if not more.

As a result of Kudrow's connections, Web Therapy has secured a slew of big-name guest stars during its run. For the upcoming third season, confirmed guest stars include Meg Ryan, Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family, and Kudrow's former Friends cohort Matt LeBlanc, now the star of another Showtime comedy entitled Episodes. The second season featured stars such as Meryl Streep, Rosie O'Donnell, Conan O'Brien, Molly Shannon, Minnie Driver, and David Schwimmer, another former Friends co-star.

"We're shooting webisodes right now, and it's just so much fun to do," commented Kudrow. "These actors we get to play with are so inventive and nimble and funny. We're beyond thrilled to get a third season on Showtime because it's such a good fit."
