'Californication' gets a greenlight for season 3
Showtime has renewed the comedy "Californication," starring David Duchovny as a novelist with a weakness for "sex, drugs and rock 'n roll," for a third season.
Production on 12 new episodes will begin in the spring for a premiere in late 2009. Tom Kapinos executive produces.
"This unapologetic show, about a group of characters led by the inimitable David Duchovny, has quickly established itself as one of our signature comedy series," said Showtime programming president Robert Greenblatt. "Beneath its veneer of debauchery, however, is a complex take on love and adult relationships that surprisingly turns poetic and romantic just when you least expect it. "
Duchovny chimed in: "We [who work on the series] all have such creative freedom and support, it's been a peak experience, and I am so happy to be doing the show."
The second season finale airs Dec. 14.
