Tv Season Info

Series 6 of the dramedy that chronicles the carnal escapades of New York City novelist Hank Moody (David Duchovny) opens with Hank still reeling from the murder attempt on his life. He accompanies Charlie (Evan Handler) to a meeting with rock star Atticus Fetch (Tim Minchin) who wants to mount a Broadway musical based on Hank's novel "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." In his new friend, the enchanting Faith (Maggie Grace), Hank may have found a muse, which is a role she has apparently played for a number of rock stars. And when the reviews roll in for the first draft of the musical, he turns to Faith for inspiration and help getting it to the next level. While all of this is going on, Becca (Madeleine Martin) is experiencing growing pains and unsure of whether she wants to be a writer or a lawyer. The series ends with Hank wrestling whether to explore a deeper relationship with Faith or perhaps trying to patch things up with Karen (Natascha McElhone).

Critic Reviews for Californication Season 6

In many ways, Season Six was a breather for Californication. It was the guy in the cubicle next to you who took a sick day after the boss ripped him to shreds the day before.

Just close your eyes and think of The X-Files (preferably Seasons 1-4).

After a disappointing premiere left me worrying about the rest of Californication Season 6, "Quitters"made a me a believer once again.

Jan 20, 2013 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

With each passing year, things have been kicked up a notch, so now, six seasons in, the scenarios featured are so extreme they're no longer funny, merely cringe-inducing.

Oct 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The season's contrived storyline is a forced and inelegant string of events that tries to come across as serendipitous.

Jan 12, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

At times, "The Unforgiven" feels desperate to reintroduce its cast by amplifying their cartoonish qualities, perhaps to offset Hank's fairly one-dimensional malaise throughout.

Audience Reviews for Californication: Season 6

  • Aug 31, 2016
    At least this season feels like Californication, and doesn't feel out of place like the last season. This season also had the last Stephen Hopkins episode, and it was very disappointing. It was also the season finale, and it sucked. The first four episodes are fine (the first is really good) but after that it just sucks.

    This was rough, like really rough.
  • Dec 30, 2014
    The show really starts slowing down by the 5th and 6th season where the characters have run their course. They seem to have no real content to give to their viewers anymore as Hank Moody finally starts getting his shit together. The tensions between random girls, girls from his lifestyle and Karen and Becca just don't exist anymore or have got way too monotonous.

    A crazy raunchy comedy. Duchovny is Outstanding along with a wonderful supporting cast.
  • Nov 20, 2013
    Season 6 of Californication brings together some of the best elements and characters of the past seasons and introduces the show-stealing Tim Minchin. Misadventure awaits.
