9:35pm – Monday, October 1 on TV 3

When we last left Hank Moody (David Duchovny), he had just been sentenced to three years probation for statutory-rape. His life was in tatters – his wife Karen (Natascha McElhone) and daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin) knew all about his dalliance with Mia (Madeline Zima), his best friend Charlie (Evan Handler) was dealing with his separation from Marcy (Pamela Adlon), and it was becoming increasingly more difficult for care-free Hank to continue his descent into full-blown hedonism.

Entering its fifth season on Monday, October 1 st at 9:35pm, Californication picks up two years and nine months into Hank’s probation, he is living in New York and has just split from his most recent girlfriend. Depressed, he jumps at an offer from Charlie to return to LA.

Charlie introduces Hank to hip-hop artist, Samurai Apocalypse, played by guest star RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. Samurai is keen for Hank to write a new movie for him to star in. All this would be fine if Hank hadn’t nearly joined the Mile High Club with Apocalypse’s main squeeze, Kali, on the flight from New York.

Since Hank’s departure to NYC, his family has gone through several changes too – Karen is now married to her college professor and notorious drunk, Bates; Becca is at college and has a new boyfriend, Tyler, who seems to share the same moral code as her father.

Could his enforced good behaviour have paved the way to a new lifestyle for Hank or will he succumb to his old ways with his return to LA? Find out when Californication returns on Monday, October 1 st at 9:35pm on 3.
