‘Web Therapy’ Season 5: Cancelled! Showtime Series Axed Because Of Poor Ratings, Lisa Kudrow Disappointed
Is it really the end of Lisa Kudrow’s star-studded comedy show “Web Therapy?” Will season 5 be cancelled or renewed?
It seems like fans could now stop wondering if the “Web Therapy” show has finally met its final fate after four seasons, as news about its cancellation circulated around different entertainment websites is now confirmed! –The half-hour show led by the 52-year-old actress, Kudrow has been canceled!
Showtime recently announced that they now decided to axe the star-studded series after airing for four seasons. The president of Showtime, David Nevins was the one to announced the bad news when he was asked about the show’s Season 5 renewal at the Television Critics Association press tour.
According to TV Line, Nevins said the “Web Therapy” is already done. Based on TV Series Finale website, the cancellation is not surprising at all, as the previous season only gained an average viewers—less than 100,00 viewers.
For those who hadn’t got a chance to watch the comedy series, the show followed the character of Kudrow, Fiona Wallace. She is a terrible therapist who has short sessions via webcam with her clients.
The show led by Kudrow was actually a web series before Showtime decided to start airing it. though the show did not capture many hearts, and never had a large followers, it was able to booked many famous guest stars namely; Merly Streep, Conan O’Brien, Rosie O’Donnell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Darren Criss, Rashida Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lily Tomlin, as well as most of Kudrow’s “Friends” cast members: Courtney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry.
When Kudrow was asked about her show’s cancellation, she simply responded by saying it does not put her out of work. She has an HBO “The Comeback” show and she’s also in Netflix’s “BoJack Horseman.” She’s also an executive producer of TLC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” and “It Got Better” documentaries for the It Gets Better Project. So, it seems like cancelling one of her show does not have a big impact in her work life.
Now, everybody wonders—what if the fate of Lisa Kudrow’s “Web Therapy” will be revived like her “The Comeback” nine years after HBO canceled it? Is the show lucky enough then?
