Showtime’s Californication wrapped up it’s 6th season last April, and has been confirmed to for a 7th season. There is still no definite air date for the season premiere, but it is estimated that it will start on the Spring of 2014 (probably April).
For those who are not familiar with the show, Californication tells the story Hank Moody. David Duchovny plays the part of Hank, a famous novelist who moved from New York to Los Angeles together with his non-wife Karen and their daughter Becca. You see, Hank’s book, God Hates Us All, was made into a movie.
Now this led to him spending less and less time with his family which led to Karen cheating on him with her client, Bill. This led to the couple breaking up and some time after Karen and Bill became engaged and this is generally where the series starts off.

Californication Season 7 Trailer
I must confess that I wasn’t really aware of the series before and I do have a lot of catching up on to do, since I’m still on the show’s first season, but from what I’ve seen I can understand how this show was able to bag 2 Emmy’s and a Golden Globe.
Now the series’ protagonist is very interesting. In one hand, he lives a very rockstar-ish lifestyle with sex, drugs, and alcohol. One of his conquests include Mia, which brought him a lot of grief because he was unaware that she is 16 years old and Bill’s daughter. Now his lifestyle is a stark contrast to his family life. He is very caring with his daughter and still carries a torch for his on-and-off girlfriend Karen.

Several stars have signed up to make an appearance on the upcoming 7th season. Rob Lowe has signed up to reprise his role as movie star Eddy Nero for one episode. Michael Imperioli, best known for his role on The Sopranos, will join the cast as Hank’s boss. Imperioli has described his character as someone frustrated and explosive, who hires Hank to write for his TV series. Other stars that have signed up to make an appearance include Heather Graham, Mary Lynn Rajksub, Mercedes Masohn, comedian Jim Florentine, Oliver Cooper from Project X and Roger Howarth.
Fans of the show are looking forward to the return of Hank, Karen, Charlie, Marcy, and the rest of the gang. I know I can’t wait to see more of Moody’s adventures, and misadventures come Spring.
