Viral Instagram account My Therapist Says is being made into a TV series

For many people, it’s hard to remember a life before memes. How did we used to document an exact feeling, mood or moment that could be relatable to so many different people? If you love memes as much as we do, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of My Therapist Says.

The viral Instagram account manages to capture all the realities (and struggles) of millennial life, from dating and socialising, to career and finance. But now, My Therapist Says is moving from our mobile phones to TV screens.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a live-action television series adaptation is in the works with the account’s co-founders, Lola Tash and Nicole Argiris. The pair launched the account in 2015, based on the phrase they repeatedly used whenever they offered each other advice: ‘Well, my therapist said…’

My Therapist Says now has a whopping 7.6 million followers, so we bet there are going to be loads of fans tuning into the scripted TV series. It also has sister accounts on Instagram, including My Bestie Says, My Puppy Says and a mental health initiative, My Therapist Helps.

The new show is being created by Kenan Thompson and John Ryan Jr’s Artists for Artists organisation, alongside Lola and Nicole, who are also executive producers.

‘Kenan and I were big fans and followers of My Therapist Says before even meeting Lola,’ said Artists for Artists cofounder and CEO John Ryan Jr. ‘My Therapist Says are the pop culture tastemakers and the class clowns that we all need right now. We look forward to bringing this incredible and influential brand to television audiences’.

‘Lola and Nicole have a unique and hilarious perspective that has resonated with people all over the world,’ Kenan said. ‘I’m so excited to welcome our funny sisters to the AFA fam!’

We can’t wait to see how the My Therapist Says TV series turns out, but if it’s true to the Instagram account, we know it’ll be right up our street.
