David Duchovny knows a thing or two about saying goodbye to a long-running TV show.
Because the actor previously walked away from The X-Files after nine seasons, Duchovny says he knew what to expect when the time came to say goodbye to Californication, which kicks off its final season Sunday at 9:30/8:30c on Showtime. But knowing what to expect didn't necessarily make it any easier to leave the show behind.

Based on the exclusive first look at Season 6 below, things will remain dark when the show resumes — at least for a little while. "We pick up days after that in the hospital, where Hank has survived but she hasn't," Duchovny says. "This season kind of begins with Hank spiraling down."

If you thought Hank Moody driving off into the sunset during the closing moments of Californication's fourth season felt like a series finale, you weren't the only one.
"This could have functioned as a series ending if we needed it to be," creator and executive producer Tom Kapinos tells TVGuide.com.

The Showtime comedy, which returns Sunday at 9/8c, ended its madcap third season with a gut punch: Hank (David Duchovny) was arrested on assault charges moments after telling his ex, Karen (Natasha McElhone), of his tryst with Mia (Madeline Zima), who, unbeknownst to Hank at the time, was underage. And while that reveal presents plenty of drama for Season 4, it also unearthed a crucial secret that's carried the show since the pilot.
"We've been using that event as a motor for behavior and plot since the beginning," Duchovny tells TVGuide.com. "And I guess that now that is no longer a secret, it is no longer a motor. In a way we're free of it, which will be interesting for the next year, and we'll have to...
