The blog is now launching its coverage of Showtime’s Web  Therapy as it  approaches it second season. Stay tuned for extensive, ongoing coverage of the show!

Indeed, Showtime  has announced that  Web Therapy has been renewed for a second season, according to a report from TV Guide.

The show was created by and  stares actress Lisa Kudrow [ Friends Phobe Buffay] who plays   the self-absorbed web therapist, Fiona  Wallace.Wallace provides  3 minute counseling sessions through web conferences, which  mainly center  around her using the issues of her clients to achieve her own personal or professional goals. The idea  of doing a three minute session is   based on her past experiences as a   conventional therapist , where she  apparently learned very quickly that  the bulk of the help was offered in three minutes and that the remainder of the typical  50 minute session was spent on  unnecessary “self-indulgent” reflections,  through recollections about dreams,  memories and past experiences!  This dark , improvised series provides a truly enjoyable perspective on a narcissistic   character as she  navigates the challenges of launching a new “ treatment modality’’  without actually being professionaly or emotionally suited to do so.

The second season includes guest stars such as  Meryl Streep, Rosie O’Donnell, Conan O’Brien, Molly Shannon, Minnie Driver and Blair.
