Season 5 of Californication ended in a bit of a dark place: Hank (David Duchovny) was (possibly fatally) drugged by a bitter ex-girlfriend.

Based on the exclusive first look at Season 6 below, things will remain dark when the show resumes — at least for a little while. "We pick up days after that in the hospital, where Hank has survived but she hasn't," Duchovny says. "This season kind of begins with Hank spiraling down."

Next stop: rehab! And with that comes the return of comedy. "We go to rehab, but it's really just for comedic purposes," Duchovny says.

The video also offers your first look at this season's guest stars. Tim Minchin plays a rock star wanting Hank's help in develop his book God Hates Us All into a Broadway musical. Marilyn Manson and Maggie Grace play some of the characters Hank encounters in the rock 'n' roll world.

Other treats in the clip below: Charlie (Evan Handler) pretends to be gay to land a big client who wants a new agent (excuse us, "gaygent") and Karen (Natascha McElhone) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon) are roomates. For more, click play below!
