Earlier today, the Showtime network executives announced that they will be cancelling their long running show "Californication." The show will continue for a seventh season, with 12 episodes in that season, but that will be the last season of the popular series.
The president of Showtime Networks Inc, David Nevins, released a statement regarding the end of the show, what he will miss, and why the network decided to cancel the show.
"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, 'Californication' has been one of our groundbreaking signature series. We will always be indebted to Tom Kapinos for leading the creative charge on this memorable comedy, and to David Duchovny for making us root for an unapologetic hedonist like Hank Moody. Tom has carefully planned the final chapter of Hank's journey and has brought it to a beautiful and satisfying conclusion for new and long-time fans alike," the Showtime president's statement read.
The show has been on the air since 2007 and stars David Duchovny as writer Hank Moody. Natascha McElhone plays the role of Karen, and Madeleine Martin has the role of Becca Moody, Hank's daughter. The three stars have been with the show since its inception in 2007.
"Californication" was a very successful show for Showtime, in fact, it was the longest running show on the network. "Californication" boasts winning a Golden Globe as well as two Emmys. During its sixth season, the show brought in an audience of 2.9 million viewers.
The final season of the popular show "Californication" will air in April of 2014.
