Showtime Cancels Californication After 7th Season
By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (December 9, 2013) - Showtime has announced that it will cancel the sex comedy, Californication, after its seventh season.

TV Guide reports that Showtime will return in April 2014 for a 12-episode, final seventh season. The series, which stars former X-Files star David Duchovny as a sex-crazed writer, had its best ratings ever in season six, writes The Huffington Post.

However, both the network and the show's creators say it's time to say bye-bye to Hank Moody (Duchovny's character.)

"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, Californication has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," Showtime said 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 room for an unapologetic hedonist like Hank Moody."

Ironically, during the show's run, Duchovny's art imitated his life when he revealed he underwent therapy for sex addiction.

Showtime is promising a satisfactory ending for his character in the final season, which will likely see several new guest stars including Heather Graham and Michael Imperioli.
