Since David Zaslav took the helm at Warner Bros. Discovery, the company has continuously changed its strategy. Firstly, they removed the “HBO” label from their name, rebranding it as Max, a platform that will be integrated internationally early next year. Recently, they started selling off some of the brand’s most prestigious series to other platforms.

Following “Band of Brothers,” HBO has now let go of another one of its best series: “Six Feet Under.” The gap between having HBO Max and Netflix is narrowing, and certainly, this latest addition puts the latter platform ahead in the streaming wars.

A legendary series from the 2000s

Premiered in 2001, Six Feet Under depicts the daily life of a family running a funeral home. Its official synopsis is as follows: ‘While the family waits for Nate’s arrival on Christmas Eve, Nathaniel Fisher (father) dies in a car accident. The middle brother, David, runs the family business alongside his domineering mother Ruth (Conroy), while his sister Claire (Ambrose) is a troubled teenager who uses drugs. The seemingly normal person in Nate’s life is Brenda (Griffiths), a passionate woman he meets on a plane. The catch is that Brenda’s family is even more dysfunctional than Nate’s.’

In the lead roles, you’ll find Nate (Peter Krause), Nathaniel (Richard Jenkins), David (Michael C. Hall), Ruth (Frances Conroy), and Claire (Lauren Ambrose). The series spans 5 seasons and a whopping 63 episodes, providing more than enough content to enjoy over a significant period of time. Undoubtedly, it is a great discovery for Netflix subscribers.
