One marriage has come to a tragic end, another is beginning, and a third is on the rocks. At Fisher & Diaz, lives are in flux, as Nate, David, Ruth, Claire and Rico struggle to find their way. What's next? Find out when SIX FEET UNDER kicks off its fourth season SUNDAY, JUNE 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), with the episode entitled "Falling Into Place," followed by other editions on subsequent Sundays at the same time, exclusively on HBO. In addition, the first three episodes of this season will air back-to-back on Sunday, July 4, beginning at 8:00 p.m.
Returning cast regulars on the show include Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Rachel Griffiths, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose, Freddy Rodriguez, Mathew St. Patrick and James Cromwell.

Wrapping its third season last June, SIX FEET UNDER was created by Alan Ball (winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar® for American Beauty). Using dramatic irony and dark, situational humor, the show approaches the subject of death through the eyes of the Fisher family, who own and operate Fisher & Diaz Funeral Home in Los Angeles.
The third season SIX FEET UNDER continued to inspire critical raves, with the New York Times calling it "required viewing in the canon of pop culture," as well as "engrossing." The Los Angeles Times hailed the show as "heroically smart, tender and witty," and "great, great stuff," while New York Magazine observed, "There is no more surprising or satisfying series anywhere on television." In addition, the show received a Golden Globe® nomination this year for Best Television Series - Drama, while Frances Conroy won the Golden Globe® for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama.
Returning directors this season include Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl), Dan Attias (HBO's "The Sopranos"), Alan Ball (Emmy® winner for Directing for a Drama Series), Michael Cuesta ("L.I.E."), Michael Engler (HBO's "Sex and the City"), Nicole Holofcener (Lovely & Amazing), Dan Minahan ("Series 7: The Contenders"), Jeremy Podeswa ("The Five Senses") and Alan Poul (one of the show's executive producers).
