The upcoming season of David Duchovny comedy "Californication" will be the show's last, Showtime announced today. The seventh and final season will premiere April 2014 and will consist of 12 episodes to wrap up the story of Hank Moody (Duchovny), Karen (Natascha McElhone), Becca (Madeleine Martin), Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon).

"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, 'Californication' has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," said Showtime's David Nevins. "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."

Hopefully creator Kapinos will bring the show to a less maligned conclusion than managed by fellow Showtime series "Dexter," which ended its eight season run on September 22. Certainly "Californication" is less fraught, its insatiable writer protagonist more fond of sleeping his way around town than murdering. The show's snagged five Emmy nominations and two wins, and marks another Showtime standard coming to a close at the premium network invests in new series like "Ray Donovan" and "Masters of Sex."

The final season of "Californication" will find Hank joining the writer's room as his never-released film "Santa Monica Cop" becomes a television series. Michael Imperioli will play the old school executive produced boss with whom Hank clashes, while Mary Lynn Rajskub and Alonzo Bodden will play fellow writers. Heather Graham, Stephen Tobolowsky, Rob Lowe, Brandon T. Jackson, Oliver Cooper and Mercedes Masohn will also guest star.
