HBO is celebrating one of its signature dramas with a marathon of the entire 63-episode run of “Six Feet Under.” The event, which launches tonight, marks the 15th anniversary of the acclaimed series.

The show, which starred Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose and Rachel Griffiths, ran for five seasons on the pay-cable channel, from June 3, 2001, to Aug. 21, 2005. Others who appeared on the series included James Cromwell, Freddy Rodriguez, Mathew St. Patrick and Jeremy Sisto.

The series chalked up a string of awards during its run, including receiving a whopping 23 Primetime Emmy nominations in 2002 alone (and winning six trophies that year), followed by another 16 nominations and one win in 2003. The show also won three Golden Globes during its run, including Best Television Series, Drama, in 2002. In 2003, the series received a Peabody Award.

The 63 episodes will air back-to-back starting tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT and running through Sunday, June 5, at 12:20 p.m.

  1. Not to be picky, but I think the heading “DVR Alert” is giving bad advice to anyone who wishes to watch all five seasons of Six Feet Under. Fine if you want to watch it live while the marathon airs, but if you want to watch it on your own time, anyone who subscribes to HBO through a cable service automatically has access to HBO Go and can stream every episode of every HBO show on demand. Don’t waste 63 hours worth of HD space on your DVR.
