The next chapter in the story of Six Feet Under is in early development at HBO, reported by Variety. The new series has no writer attached to it yet, so there is no plot created for the new series, which means the upcoming new project could be any number of things such as a reboot or a sequel series.
Six Feet Under original series was created by Alan Ball, and he is attached to the new project alongside executive producers Bob Greenblatt and David Janollari, who were also attached to the original series. The new project is in very early development, which means it still could be scrapped and never move beyond the discussion phase.
Six Feet Under aired on HBO from 2001-2005 for five seasons and it followed the Fisher family and they’re associated as they run their funeral home left to the Fisher brothers by their father Nathaniel Fisher Sr. The original series starred Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose, Freddy Rodriguez, Mathew St. Patrick, and Rachel Griffins.
The HBO series became very popular with fans as well as the critics, getting 53 total nominations and winning an Emmy for best directing for a drama series for Ball. No release date or any detail for the upcoming series has been announced yet.
