Showtime Gives “Californication” An End Date

By December 9, 2013

In a show that probably should’ve ended two seasons ago, Showtime has confirmed they are indeed bringing the David Duchovny-driven series “Californication” to an end.


In the past six seasons, not only was “Californication” Showtime’s longest-running series that earned Duchovny a Golden Globe and two Emmys for the show itself, but has seen their audience grow throughout each season.

“With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, Californication has been one of our groundbreaking signature series. We will always be indebted to (creator) Tom Kapinos for leading the creative charge on this memorable comedy, and to David Duchovny for making us root for an unapologetic hedonist like Hank Moody. Tom has carefully planned the final chapter of Hank’s journey and has brought it to a beautiful and satisfying conclusion for new and longtime fans alike.” – David Nevins, Showtime’s president of entertainment

Word is the final season sees Hank (Duchovny) in the writers’ room for “Santa Monica Cop” – a TV show based on his film that never saw the light of day. Of course, Moody has to butt heads with someone and this someone is his boss and OG showrunner Rick Rath (Michael Imperioli, “The Sopranos”) – which should prove to be comedy gold. Also joining the cast as “SMC” writers Goldie and Alonzo are Mary Lynn Rajskub (“24”) and Alonzo Bodden (“Last Comic Standing”), so there should be plenty of laughs abound for these final 12 episodes.

But wait, that’s not all!


Heather Graham (Boogie Nights) is coming in as Julia, an old friend of Hank’s, returning to cause a little trouble for Hank AND Eddie Nero (Rob Lowe, above) is back to give Moody a little bigger headache.

Seems like Showtime’s about to usher in a whole new slew of original programming, as “The Big C”, “Dexter” and “The Borgias” also came to an end earlier this year.

The seventh and final season begins April 2014.
