'Californication' cancelled by Showtime after Season 7

Showtime announced Monday (Dec. 9) that "Californication" has been cancelled. According to Variety, the David Duchovny-led comedy series will end after Season 7, with the final 12 episodes airing in April 2014.

"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, 'Californication' has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," said Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins in a statement.

"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."

The sixth season of "Californication" was its highest-rated season to date, averaging 2.9 million viewers across all platforms.

The final season will find Hank joining the writer’s room as his never-released film "Santa Monica Cop" becomes a TV show of the same name. He’s riled frequently by his boss, the show’s old-school executive producer Rick Rath (Michael Imperioli), and his fellow writing team members, including Goldie (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and Alonzo (Alonzo Bodden). But he’s thrown by the reemergence of old friend Julia (Heather Graham), whose arrival causes chaos in Hank’s already hectic life, and with his on-off relationship with Karen (Natascha McElhone).

Meanwhile, Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon) grapple with the aftermath of their reunion and an enticing offer from her ex-husband, Stu Beggs (Stephen Tobolowsky). Rob Lowe, Brandon T. Jackson, Oliver Cooper and Mercedes Masohn will also guest star in Season 7.

Since premiering in 2007, "Californication" has earned four Golden Globe nominations, including a win for Duchovny. The series also picked up five Emmy nominations, winning twice for cinematography. The show is currently Showtime's longest-running scripted series.
