Also appearing in the new episodes will be: Kathy Bates (Bettina), Joanna Cassidy (Margaret), Patricia Clarkson (Sarah), Jennifer Elise Cox (Mary), Ileana Douglas (Angela), Tina Holmes (Maggie), Richard Jenkins (Nathaniel), Peter Macdissi (Olivier), Matt Malloy (Roger), Kal Penn and Jeremy Sisto (Billy).

Directors for the new season will include Daniel Attias, Alan Ball, Rodrigo Garcia, Joshua Marston, Dan Minahan, Jeremy Podeswa and Alan Poul.

The executive producers of SIX FEET UNDER are Alan Ball, Robert Greenblatt, David Janollari, Alan Poul, Bruce Eric Kaplan and Rick Cleveland; co-executive producers, Scott Buck and Jill Soloway; supervising producer, Kate Robin; producers, Lori Jo Nemhauser, Bob Del Valle and Craig Wright; co-producer, Nancy Oliver.
