THE FINAL FLING BEGINS...

The Hit SHOWTIME(R) Comedy Series "CALIFORNICATION" To Conclude Its Remarkable Run with 12 Episodes - Season Seven Premieres in April 2014

SHOWTIME viewers will take one last romp with Hank Moody when the hit comedy series' seventh season premieres in April 2014 (date TBD), it was announced today by David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. The final 12 episodes will neatly wrap up our unforgettable time following Hank (David Duchovny), Karen (Natascha McElhone), Becca (Madeleine Martin), Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon) in their audacious comic mis-adventures and sexcapades.

"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, CALIFORNICATION has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," said David Nevins. "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."

Created and executive produced by Tom Kapinos, CALIFORNICATION stars David Duchovny (also an executive producer) in his Golden Globe(R)-winning role as the hedonistic writer who fights to balance the demands of his insatiable libido, unpredictable career, ex-girlfriend/muse Karen and beloved daughter Becca. He's aided (and sometimes abetted) by best friend/agent Charlie and Charlie's bawdy wife Marcy. Over the course of its run, the series has been honored withmany accolades, including five Emmy(R) nominations and two wins, six Golden Globe nominations and one win, and a Screen Actors Guild(R) Award nomination. CALIFORNICATION had its highest-rated season ever with season six last year averaging 2.9 million weekly viewers across platforms. An incredibly consistent performer for the network, the series grew steadily over its six seasons on the air, and last year saw a growth of over 20 percent On Demand as well.

From his debut in August 2007, Hank Moody quickly became everyone's favorite unflinchingly honest, self-destructive lothario who bowed at the altar of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll. The final season will find him joining the writer's room as his never-released film "Santa Monica Cop" now becomes a television series of the same name. He's riled frequently by his boss, the show's old-school executive producer Rick Rath (guest star Michael Imperioli), and his fellow writing team members, including Goldie (guest star Mary Lynn Rajskub) and Alonzo (co-star Alonzo Bodden). But he's thrown by the reemergence of old friend Julia (guest star Heather Graham), whose arrival causes chaos in Hank's already hectic life, and with his on-off relationship with Karen (McElhone). Meanwhile, Charlie (Handler) and Marcy (Adlon) grapple with the aftermath of their reunion and an enticing offer from her ex-husband, Stu Beggs (guest star Stephen Tobolowsky). Rob Lowe, Brandon T. Jackson, Oliver Cooper and Mercedes Masohn will also guest star.
