"Cougar Town" has one tricky way to tease on Jennifer Aniston's upcoming appearance. Instead of giving the first look at Aniston as a shrink named Bonnie, the promos cut and mash up scenes where everybody is excited of the upcoming guest.
After successfully luring Lisa Kudrow to the show as her dermatologist, Courteney Cox finally secured a deal with her real-life BFF and "Friends" co-star Aniston to play a shrink to her character. "Kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist. Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules wishes she has," executive producer Bill Lawrence told EW.
Fans should not wait long for Bonnie for she would appear in the season premiere airing September 22. Jules finds an instant connection with her new shrink, Bonnie, until she discovers the unfortunate but hilarious truth about her method of treatment; Ellie is jealous over Jules' fondness for Bonnie; a bet between Laurie and Travis leads to a sweet sibling-like moment; and Bobby acts out his frustrations that Jules and Grayson are dating.
There's a chance that Bonnie is more-than-an-episode character. "We're very intentionally implying that it's a therapist Courteney has been using for a while, and we're certainly not going to make it like they'll never see each other again. So I'm crossing my fingers that if she has a good time it'll happen again," Lawrence said.
