californication-cancelled-renewed-season-six-showtimeIn an all Showtime day, a third announcement came to update my lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012.

And this is the third show renewed today, after House of Lies renewal and Shameless renewal, Showtime renewed Californication for season six that will air later in 2012.

“These three shows are clearly resonating with audiences as evidenced by their steady growth on Sunday nights,” said  President of Entertainment at Showtime David Nevins. “We are extremely pleased with the creative work being done by the casts, producers and writers – and I so appreciate that each of these series has such a clear and distinctive voice.”

Californication stars David Duchovny in his Golden Globe Award-winning role as hedonistic novelist Hank Moody, who struggles to raise his teenage daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). This season, Moody’s back in L.A. and is hired by a mega-rich rap mogul Samurai Apocalypse (guest star RZA) to write the screenplay for his hot, new film property. Their friendship is tested by silky siren Kali (guest star Meagan Good), a singer who is Sam’s protégé. Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon) are co-parenting their son, along with Marcy’s now-husband Stu Beggs (guest star Stephen Tobolowsky), and with the help of a sexy, English nanny (guest star Camilla Luddington). Additional guest stars include Scott Michael Foster, Drea de Matteo and Peter Berg, and Rob Lowe will return as the unpredictable “Eddie Nero” in one episode. Produced by Showtime, Californication is created and executive produced by Tom Kapinos and executive produced by David Duchovny.
