It's three years later on Californication and Hank Moody, having barely escaped jail time at the end of Season 4, is enjoying his freedom in New York City, away from the madness of L.A.
But a bad break-up and a call from his old pal Charlie about a job send him back to the left coast, and once Moody's back in L.A. he 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).
Meanwhile Karen's remarried and Becca's dating an insufferable 20-year-old version of Hank. Can Hank go home again and keep his sanity intact?
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.
