Californication is set to wrap up after season seven. Showtime has announced that they will not be continuing the long-running dark-comedy, bringing it to a close after the upcoming 12-episode seventh season, slated to debut in April.
Showtime entertainment president David Nevins had this to say (via Deadline):
“With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, Californication has been one of our groundbreaking signature series. 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. Tom has carefully planned the final chapter of Hank’s journey and has brought it to a beautiful and satisfying conclusion for new and long-time fans alike.”
Kudos to Showtime for bringing this great show to an end on a high note. Season six was Californication’s highest rated season thus far, averaging 2.9 million weekly viewers across platforms.
Californication has earned five Emmy nominations, winning two, since it began back in 2007.
The seventh season is set to guest star Heather Graham, Stephen Tobolowsky, Rob Lowe, Brandon T. Jackson, Oliver Cooper and Mercedes Masohn.
Here’s a teaser for the final season:
