Sopranos cast reunite to celebrate TV series’ 20th anniversary

Sopranos Finale

In an interview with TV critics Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall for their book The Sopranos Sessions commemorating the 20th anniversary of the epochal HBO series' premiere, Chase refers to "the death scene".

David Chase's groundbreaking mafia drama first aired in the United States on January 10 1999 and viewers spent six seasons following the trials and tribulations of New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano, played by the late James Gandolfini.

Mostly, though, the film focuses on Tony's uncle, Dickie Moltisanti (played by Alessandro Nivola), a mob soldier who eventually dies in the '70s at the hands of a crooked cop. "The Many Saints of Newark" takes place during a time period when the mafia was thriving in NY and by extension was a huge part of the scene in New Jersey as well. But before we get to the pull-quote that's got everyone arching their eyebrows, I'd like to go on record with the following opinion: the ending of The Sopranos can not be "solved", should not be "solved", and was pretty much designed from the ground up to be open to interpretation.

He added, "The movie will deal with the tensions between the blacks and whites at the time, and Tony Soprano will be part of this, but as a kid".


Though the elder Moltisanti never appeared in the series, he is often mentioned as part of Christopher's backstory. However, when audiences were introduced to Soprano and his gang of mobsters, it was one of the first times that a leading TV character was not a "good guy". Dickie was gunned down when Christopher was still a toddler and he later avenged his father's death years later by killing the cop who set him up to be murdered. The Many Saints of Newark begins shooting in April. "The mafia was very polished at that time, how they dressed and what they did", Chase noted. Even after talking to Chase, Seitz and Sepinwall are still arguing about it. "I just, people want to know, I have no idea".

"I was against [the movie] for a long time and I'm still very anxious about it, but I became interested in Newark, where my parents came from, and where the riots took place", Chase said. But what actually happened?' I'm like, 'You don't understand.

On Wednesday, cast members Edie Falco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler were among those to gather in NY to celebrate the landmark.

"I loved how the series ended because I think that there was no way everybody was gonna be happy", Edie Falco, who played Tony Soprano's wife, Carmela, tells ET.
