Showtime has just announced that Lisa Kudrow (as Fiona Wallice) will be returning to the premium cable network for a second season of Web Therapy.
Season 2, airing in 2012, will feature several celebrity guest-stars including Meryl Streep, Rosie O’Donnell, Conan O’Brien, Molly Shannon, Minnie Driver, and Selma Blair. Thew news came from Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins. The total number of episodes for the season has yet to be officially released, but Showtime has stated that there will be “at least” ten episodes.
“We are thrilled that SHOWTIME will air more of the half-hour format of WEB THERAPY, we really love this version of the show,” says Kudrow. “Of course, we are over the moon that Meryl Streep will be in this coming season. She was effortlessly hilarious and it’s a great story. We have Lily Tomlin back who is ALWAYS fantastically funny. Conan O’Brien is beyond, fantastic, he’s a perfect improviser. We’re honestly giddy over the people we have for this season.”
Lily Tomlin will return as Fiona’s judgmental mother; Dan Bucatinsky will continue his role as Fiona’s assistant turned ghost-writer; and Victor Garber returns as her husband Kip, whose double life proves quite challenging to Fiona. Season two finds Fiona playing the woman-behind-the-man in Kip’s political campaign while juggling her burgeoning career as an author and continuing to advise the hapless clients who have wandered into her web.
