It's nearly time for Hank to drive his Cabriolet into the California sunset. Showtime has announced that Season 7 of Californication, which kicks off in April, will be the last outing for the show.

The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy stars X-Files grad David Duchovny as Hank Moody, a horndog deadbeat of a writer and father — a guy who can charm his way out of any bad situation but undermines any good situation with his own addictions and self-loathing.

Other series regulars include Natascha McElhone (The Truman Show) as Karen, Hank's star-crossed lover and muse; Madeline Martin (Legendary) as Becca, his beleaguered, wise-beyond-her-years daughter; Evan Handler (Sex and the City) as Charlie, his loser manager; and Pamela Adlon (Louie) as Marcy, Charlie's foul-mouthed ex.

In a statement posted by TV Guide, Showtime president David Nevins praises the show: "With its unique blend of lyricism and excess, Californication has been one of our groundbreaking signature series. We will always be indebted to [creator] 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…

Season 7 will see Hank as a writer on a TV show based on his failed film Santa Monica Cop, and the season will boast the likes of Rob Lowe, Michael Imperioli, and Heather Graham. Says David Nevins: "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."

Spoiler alert: Hank will drink, do drugs, and sleep around. Or so we're assuming!
