'Californication' Season 7 Confirmed to End the Series Starting in April 2014Kevin Fitzpatrick |
Moving through the end of the year into 2014 always promises to be an eventful quarter for Showtime, bringing back our sinful Sundays with 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication,' but not for long. The network confirmed that David Duchovny's 'Californication' will wrap up the series with its upcoming seventh and final season, beginning in April 2014.
"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, 'Californication' has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," says Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins of the decision. "We will always be indebted to 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."
Premiering in January, the final season of 'Californication' sees Hank Moody now a writer on the TV series based on his unreleased film 'Santa Monica Cop.' 'The Sopranos' vet Michael Imperioli will guest as executive producer Rick Rath, who frequently riles up Hank, along with '24' star Mary Lynn Rajskub as neurotic writer Goldie and Alonzo Bodden. Guest star Heather Graham will play an old friend who brings more chaos to Hank's life, joining Stephen Tobolowsky, Rob Lowe, Brandon T. Jackson, Oliver Cooper and Mercedes Masohn.
'Californication''s ultimate end will also give rise to new Showtime monster-mash drama 'Penny Dreadful,' but what say you? Are you sad to see David Duchovny's Hank Moody hang up his libido after seven seasons?
