sopranos series finale

The Sopranos marks its 20th anniversary this week, and everyone is still talking about the series finale, some 12 years after it aired. Love it or hate it, the Sopranos finale was unforgettable, particularly for its now-infamous final scene in which (spoilers) the screen cut to black, and held there, leaving the fate of Tony Soprano ambiguous, and spouting many theories in the process. But according to creator David Chase, the series could’ve had a much different final scene – one that would’ve been a little less open-ended.

sopranos prequel movie cast

The Sopranos creator David Chase has answered a very pressing question regarding his Sopranos prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark: will we see Tony Soprano in the film? The answer – yes. Since the film is set in the 1960s, it enables Chase and company to skirt around the tragic fact that James Gandolfini, who so famously played Tony, died in 2013. As a result, the Tony we see in The Many Saints of Newark will be around 8-years-old.

The Sopranos movie, The Many Saints of Newark, is still happening, and the first piece of potential casting has been announced. Alessandro Nivola is in negotiations to play Dickey Moltisanti in the film, which is set before the events of The Sopranos. That’s no doubt a familiar name to fans of the show – Dickey Moltisanti was the father of Christopher Moltisanti, played by Michael Imperioli in the groundbreaking HBO series. Dickey was already dead by the time the events of The Sopranos took place, but The Many Saints of Newark will likely fill in his backstory. More on the Sopranos movie cast below.

David Chase

Since its final episode, all anyone wants to talk about in regard to The Sopranos is the ending. By cutting to black without any definitive conclusion, David Chase did something gutsy and different that will be debated until the end of television. People tend to forget the reason everyone was so glued to that final episode was because, for six seasons, Chase and his team created one of the best shows in the history of the medium. The purposefully ambiguous ending was a way to let fans put their own conclusion on Tony’s story.

Those six seasons can now be watched forever with a new Blu-ray set released this week. While promoting the set Chase gave Sopranos fans a nice little tease. He said he’s intrigued by a few other eras of New Jersey history, but that his interests all take place before Tony and his crew came to power. Read the Sopranos prequel quotes below. Read More »

Sopranos Ending

Seven years ago, The Sopranos ended with one of the greatest and most polarizing hours of television ever broadcast. In the final scene, Tony Soprano and his family meet for dinner. Meadow Soprano arrives late, and takes an agonizingly long time to park. We watch on the edge of our seats, tense, waiting for violence. Is a hit coming? A suspicious guy heads into the restroom. Meadow walks in. Tony looks up. Before anything happens, the screen goes black. Roll silent credits.

Does Tony Soprano live? Does the hit we think we know is coming take place as the screen goes black — is that Tony’s death? Is the whole thing a metaphor for Tony’s fate? Fans have speculated for years, and that’s the beauty of the show’s ending. Creator/writer/director David Chase has finally spoken up about Tony’s fate, however, and if you’re dying to know whatever there is to know about Tony’s existence (or lack thereof) after that cut to black, read on.

Update: Chase, through his representative, says the quote was misconstrued. Read his statement below.

No, he’s got another picture on the way, from one of his own scripts, and it sounds like it might be on screens sooner rather than later. Read More »
