"Californication" will finally be saying goodbye after a long successful run on Showtime. The series' upcoming seventh season will be its last, says Showtime in a press release.
Season 7 will premiere with 12 episodes in April 2014. This final arc will bring the story of David Duchovny's Hank to a close. Though "Californication" wrapped filming on Season 7 on July 30, 2013, series creator Tom Kapinos seems to have planned it all along as the show's swan song.
"With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, 'Californication' has been one of our groundbreaking signature series," Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins says in a statement. "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."
At least a few new faces will be introduced in Season 7. Heather Graham, Michael Imperioli and Mary Lynn Rajskub were cast back in April 2013. Graham will play a woman from Hank's past who arrives and disturbs his life, while Rajskub will play a neurotic writer for three episodes and Imperioli will play television producer Rick Rath who is working with Hank on his new venture.
Are you sad "Californication" is coming to an end?
"Homeland" is hurtling to its Season 3 finale, and it's anyone's guess as to how the show will end. A new promo for "The Star" has premiered, and it relies heavily on footage from previous Season 3 episodes instead of teasing a resolution to the episode 11 cliffhanger. So what will come next?
It might seem like a hard pill to swallow, but this may finally be the season that the writers kill off Brody. The death has been tiptoed around for seasons, but at this point what other hope is there for the character? It's hard to picture an easy journey for him back to the United States, even though he managed to successfully kill Akbari Sunday night (Dec. 8). A future for him and Carrie doesn't seem bright.
Even if Brody does live (and here's hoping he does, because Damian Lewis has been at the top of his game this year), there's no way Saul can actually resolve problems in the Middle East ... is there? "Homeland" requires a certain suspension of disbelief, but there's got to be something that happens in "The Star" that throws a rut in Saul's plan.
Then there's Carrie herself. Her growing pregnancy has to come to light in the finale, because -- as shown in "Big Man in Tehran" -- she is seriously starting to show. How will Brody and Saul respond to her keeping that a secret, and will it be Quinn who finally brings it to light? It will be fun to see how that plays out.
And though the Brody family has been largely absent from the second half of Season 3, the finale will likely be when they make their return. Here's hoping Dana and Brody have a better reunion than their last one.

"Battlestar Galactica" turned 10 on Sunday (Dec. 8). It's hard to believe so much time has passed since the groundbreaking series premiered on Syfy, but the show has left behind quite the legacy and it's easy to see how it has helped pave the way for other high-quality content being created today.
In honor of "BSG's" big day, "Bob's Burgers" gave the series an adorable nod to show some recognition. It was small and easy to miss, but there's no calling this a coincidence.
Bob's Burgers always has an array of different Burgers of the Day in every episode. In the Dec. 8 episode "Bob and Deliver," one of the burgers was named Edward James Olive-Most, after "BSG" lead Edward James Olmos.
So what would go in an Edward James Olive-Most burger? There was never much of a variety of food on the Galactica, so the burger would be pretty simple: sun-dried tomatoes (they last longer than normal tomatoes, after all), a slice of American cheese, bacon in honor of that time he had a rad mustache and, of course, olives. Bill Adama would approve.

The four-hour miniseries begins with quite the depressing imagery of Bonnie Parker (Holliday Granger) and Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch), their corpses dead and bloodied, being carted through town in their car riddled with bullet holes. We all know where the story is headed, but getting there should be half the fun, right?
Wrong. While the plot itself has potential -- Bonnie and Clyde's infamous crime spree has fascinated the country for the past 80 years -- and the modern re-telling sprinkles feminist ideas into this version's Bonnie, the slow pace and disjointed storytelling leave a lot to be desired. We are supposed to be captivated by Bonnie and Clyde's love at first sight, the overwhelming passion that led them to their life of crime, but they constantly seem like strangers who were never on the same page.
Clyde makes it clear he is only robbing to get enough to make a life for Bonnie -- he even wants to buy a house and have a ton of kids. But Bonnie ... well, she is only it it for the fame. When Clyde brings up babies, she can barely keep the look of disgust off of her face. Aren't these two supposed to be a team?
With the introduction of Clyde's "premonitions" and Bonnie's panic attacks, these two don't carry the bravado we expect to see in the lawless couple. They're unsympathetic. When Bonnie and Clyde's latest heist ends up in an accidental murder, Bonnie is more upset over the photo the newspapers used of her than the life that was lost. Even Clyde, who was raped during his first stint in prison, doesn't garner any sympathy as he never speaks of the ordeal or acknowledges that it happened.
"Bonnie & Clyde" concludes its two-night event on Monday (Dec. 9) on History, A&E, and Lifetime.
What did you think of Part 1 of "Bonnie & Clyde?" Will you tune back in for the conclusion to the miniseries?
