Showtime’s ‘Californication’ Will End After Season 7
All Moody things must come to an end.
Showtime’s crass yet genius dark comedy series, “Californication“, will be ending after its seventh season which premieres on April 2014. The tale of writer and lothario (both mutually exclusive?) Hank Moody, played by the amazing David Duchovny, will end his stories of mischief, mistresses, debauchery and booze after nearly seven years on TV.
To say that we will miss it is a very large understatement. Let’s put it this way: Without “Californication”, there is no Butr. This wonderful, informative web site run by scholars and upright citizens would not have existed if it wasn’t for that one episode where Charlie Runkle (played by the bald and beautiful Evan Handler) used a stick of butter as a form of lubrication. Yes, the show’s that good.
For those of you who have not watched a single episode, please do so. Beneath all the crass, slight misogyny and whiskey lies a show with tremendous heart, levity and sincerity. As described by one of the characters in the show, “Californication” is a story of a man trying to keep it together, while falling apart.
Countdown to your farewell Mr. Moody. Cheers.
