Californication Season 4 Premiere!
Californication Season 4 will premiere on Sunday January 9th on SHOWTIME.
Californication Season 4 returns to the air starting January 9th on Showtime. This is one of those shows that people either love or hate. Hank Moody (David Duchovny) is a troubled novelist who clearly has moments of brilliance, but can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble. As badly has he wants to get back together with the wife of his daughter Karen (Natascha McElhone) he has zero will to turn down other women. Hank is clearly an addict. He drinks too much and screws too much and they both run and ruin his life. Some people despise him and the show and others like me find it to be fascinating. Hank is the kind of guy you might want to be yourself. He lives his life his way, takes shit from nobody and makes no apologies. He is who he is for better or worse.
As season four of Californication gets underway we will be seeing Hank bottoming out. As Season three ended Hank’s world came crashing down. Karen found out he had slept with Mia and that she stole his book. All of the crap Hank has been pulling and all of the people he has hurt and lied to finally catch up with him. We were left with Hank in the street watching his daughter and Karen leaving as the police arrest him. Hank’s chickens have finally come home to roost.
I can’t help but think about some of the parallels this show has with Duchovny’s life. He has been accused of cheating himself and even checked himself into rehab for sexual addiction. He did this right around the time Californication started to film. A show that requires him to roll around naked in bed and have sex scenes with plenty of gorgeous women may not have been the best way to deal with his problems, but maybe it helped him get in touch with Moody and his flaws.
I, for one, am stoked that Californication will be coming back to the air. The wait has been too long and from what I have heard this season is going to be amazing. For those who have skipped it, you still have time to catch up. Each season is only 13 episodes and they are only 30 minutes long so you have time to watch them all and catch yourself up. This is one of the best shows on TV and deserves a larger audience.
Californication Season 4 will air January 9th on Showtime.
