Maggie Grace, David Duchovny
Showtime's dreams of Californication will come to a close after one final season, TV Guide Magazine has learned. The network has confirmed that the upcoming seventh season of the David Duchovny series will be its last.
Sunday's Season 6 finale of Californication will find Hank Moody asking himself a very familiar question.
Although Hank (David Duchovny) has spent most of the season chasing after rocker groupie Faith (guest star Maggie Grace), Sunday's finale (10:30/9:30c, Showtime) finds him once again considering a future with his first love, Karen (Natascha McElhone)....
Season 5 of Californication ended in a bit of a dark place: Hank (David Duchovny) was (possibly fatally) drugged by a bitter ex-girlfriend.

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."

In the inexplicably long-running smutcom's fourth season, the grotesque Marcy Runkle (Pamela Adlon) is being romanced by big-time Hollywood producer Stu Beggs (Stephen Tobolowsky, aka Groundhog Day's Ned Ryerson, wasting his talent).

Louie - Louis C.K.
For funnyman Louis C.K., having the final say in the production of his new FX comedy series, Louie, is key.
"When you have a writing staff, you have a community of people you have to convince of everything," C.K. says. "It's like being a dictator."

An elegant backyard cocktail party behind a historical manse, young actresses adorning the understated evening, flitting about in simple summer dresses and industry types mingling in small groups with hors d'oeuvres in hand: It was the kind of party that Hank Moody crashes with bravado.But at Monday's real-life Showtime soiree, which celebrated the Season 1 DVD release of Californication, everyone behaved themselves, including "Hank's" auteur, David Duchovny. Dressed in a Moody-eqsue black-on-black shirt and jacket combo, he reflected on the show's first season, and addressed some of the more serious boundary-pushing he's been doing in it. "We're always pushing it to be funny, in terms of the sex." he said. "So we never try to be sexy. I think that would feel kind of creepy. If we're sexy we're doing it by mistake, but usually, the sex is funny, and that's what our approach to the sex is, it's ridiculous and it's funny." The "mistake" has clearly not been lost on many of the show's...
