The creator of The Sopranos has said that he’d be interested in bringing it back as a prequel.

David Chase, who created and wrote the majority of the legendary gangster drama, said in an interview that if he ever were to bring it back, it would be as a prequel rather than a sequel.

The Sopranos was one of the first big premium TV series that drew massive critical acclaim, with many critics claiming it heralded in the “golden age” of TV.

The series ended 10 years ago on a controversial note, with the final episode leaving viewers unsure whether lead character Tony Soprano and his family would be killed or not. 

This ending after 6 seasons left some fans wanting more, but Chase says he wouldn’t want to see it happen.

“I wouldn’t want to see that happen, no. Like recasting? Everybody’s getting older, you can’t match people anymore.

“I could conceive of maybe a prequel of The Sopranos. I could never see [a return of the show] except as a prequel.”

When the show was still airing, talk of a prequel series was abound, with rumours of a prequel film set when Tony Soprano was a child.

Chase has claimed that he has talked with studios but nothing had been nailed on.

You can watch all 6 seasons of The Sopranos on NOW TV and via Sky Box Sets.
