From its humble beginnings in 2008 as an online show, Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy has earned millions of fans over the last few years, thanks, in no small part, to its inclusion on Showtime’s roster of original comedy programming. And because of its 21 percent increase in viewership over the summer, as Deadline points out, the cable giant has re-upped the former Friends star’s creation for a third season.

Co-created by Dan Bucatinsky and Don Roos, the show centers around Kudrow, who plays Fiona Wallice, a psychotherapist who’s traded in the 50-minute therapy model for three-minute Web chats with her clients. Lily Tomlin and Victor Garber have had recurring roles on the show, playing Kudrow’s mother and husband. Past guest stars include Conan O’Brien, Rosie O’Donnell and Selma Blair. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, season three is expected to be comprised of at least 10 episodes.
