Web Therapy has run its course at Showtime.

The comedy based on the web series of the same name will not return for a fifth season, Showtime president David Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter following his time in front of the press at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour Tuesday.

"No, that's done," he said when asked if the Lisa Kudrow comedy would be back.

The series, from Kudrow and her producing partners Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal) and Don Roos, has run for four seasons, with a total of 43 episodes, on the premium cable network, concluding its run in January with 23,000 total viewers.
 
Throughout the show's four seasons, Showtime compiled multiple short webisodes and filled out half-hour installments with additional content. The online version wrapped its fifth season in February.
 
The cancellation opens the door for Kudrow, Michael Patrick King and company to take on another round of the HBO comedy The Comeback, which producers are in talks to bring back for a third season.
 
For Showtime, the move to cancel Web Therapy comes as the cable network recently concluded veteran comedy Nurse Jackie. The network is poised to launch Andrew Dice Clay entry Dice in 2016 and drama Billions in January. The cabler's comedy roster now consists of hourlong dramedy Shameless and comedies House of Lies and Episodes, the latter of which likely will return in 2017.
 
On the pilot side, Showtime is prepping comedy Roadies from Cameron Crowe.
