Variety is reporting that a follow-up to hit series Six Feet Under is in early development at HBO with series creator Alan Ball attached to executive produce. There is no official writer attached to the project at this time.
The show originally ran from 2001 to 2005 following the Fisher family and their funeral business. The series captured the imagination of audiences with its compelling stories and incredibly talented cast including Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Frances Conroy (American Horror Story), Peter Krause (Parenthood), Rachel Griffith (Brothers & Sisters), Lauren Ambrose (Servant), and Freddy Rodriguez (Planet Terror).
Six Feet Under received dozens of award nominations taking home multiple Golden Globes and Emmys.
There is no word yet on what the plot of the new series will be. It could be a sequel or a reboot, but either way, we’re on the edge of our seat in anticipation of what could come with Ball and original series producers Bob Greenblatt and David Janollari on board.
Neither HBO nor Ball’s representatives have commented on the new project at this time, but it seems like a perfect vehicle for the premium network’s streaming platform.
