Home Box Office has renewed offbeat drama Six Feet Under for a third
season, ordering 13 new episodes for next year, officials said Monday.
The critically acclaimed show, which won a Golden Globe as best dramatic
series, is now in the middle of its second season.
The dark drama looks at death, often with ironic humor, through the eyes of
the Fisher family, which runs a funeral home in Los Angeles.
Six Feet Under was created by Alan Ball, who won an Oscar for best
original screenplay for American Beauty.
