Californication: David Duchovny Series Renewed for Season Four

CalifornicationShowtime has announced that they’re bringing back Californication for a fourth season of 12 episodes.

In the Californication series, David Duchovny stars as Hank Moody, a writer who tries to balance his career, ex-girlfriend, daughter, and a few personal demons. Others in the show include Natascha McElhone, Madeleine Martin, Madeline Zima, Pamela Adlon, and Evan Handler.

Season three kicked off on September 29th and finds Hank forced to start teaching at a Los Angeles university after the failure of his book. The premiere numbers made Showtime very happy with record-breaking viewership for the series, up 57% from the season two debut.

Season three is expected to finish before the end of the year and the next round will begin airing sometime in 2010.

    Shane is taking himself and the show waaaay to seriously – enjoy the ride, it is fun and oh so cheeky! Nothing else as fresh and contemporary on the box. . .

    I’m a little surprised it got renewed. I was into the first season. I liked the edgy comedy and the plot line intriguing. But the show simply lost its way by season two. It seemed like it lost its identity. It became a show that just sort of drifts casually without any high stakes. I asked myself by the middle of the second season, what defines this show? It’s like a show that does anything it wants without worrying about what defines it. I think the turning point was Karen jumping in the car at the end of season 1. That just seemed too implausible. Sure, the show worked hard to explore the love between Hank and Karen but she was still determined to stay with Bill. And that’s where the show suffered. The show made no effort to explain why she continued to stay with Bill and yet she did. So it seemed like such an irrational decision to bail on her own wedding.
