Tv Season Info

Series 3 of the dramedy that chronicles the carnal escapades of novelist-turned-screenwriter Hank Moody (David Duchovny) opens with Karen (Natascha McElhone) back in New York and Hank trying to make a home in Los Angeles for him and Becca (Madeleine Martin), who has rocketed into full-fledged teen rebellion. On the work front, Hank takes a job teaching creative writing at a local college, which proves to be quite the fertile ground for his harvesting of a new crop of lovers. As for Charlie, he signs with a new talent agency run by Sue Collini (Kathleen Turner) and lands his first new client, rocker Rick Springfield (as himself). And when the agency head runs the risk of losing a top client, Charlie runs to the rescue. Later, Karen returns from New York intent on reuniting the family and moving them back East, so Hank decides to cool things off with the campus hotties, but once again winds up getting burned.

Critic Reviews for Californication: Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

The writing is stylish, witty and often laugh-out-loud funny because it rings true...

Do the Californication writers know how to execute a season finale or what?!?

April 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It has to be said that Season 3 was nothing like the first two, and that's what made it work.

December 21, 2009 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

A show that seemed to accept and even embrace the reputation given to it by those who never watched, or only casually -- nothing more than a guilty pleasure in which David Duchovny jumped from bed to bed.

November 16, 2018 | Full Review…

This taut [final] episode -- with no sex, no jokes, and, now, no family -- brings the show far beyond where it's ever been before.

April 3, 2018 | Full Review…

If you haven't got into Californication [yet], you should give it a whirl. It's sharp, funny, sexy, wicked and the characters - especially Hank - have proper depth.
