Season 4 picks up 72 hours after Hank is arrested at the end of Season 3 and revolves around Hank's thoroughly destroyed life.
His secrets have come to light and the world knows that Hank penned Fucking & Punching, also revealing that he slept with Mia. Karen hates Hank's guts and Becca is disappointed in her father, so Hank goes to live at a hotel.
Season 4 focuses mostly on Hank's new legal troubles and the development of a movie adaptation of "Fucking & Punching". His home life with Karen and Becca is in ruins, but the scandal surrounding the publication of his latest book has turned him into a hot Hollywood commodity – in more ways than one.
Other developing story lines include Charlie learning his vasectomy may have been botched and he may have impregnated Marcy, Becca joining an all female rock band, Karen finding a new boyfriend, and the various troubles Hank causes with film production and with his lawyer's attempts to get Hank acquitted of a statutory rape charge with little to no help on Hank's part.
Can Hank navigate the mess he's made of his life and come out on top?
