Did The Sopranos Kill Tony Soprano in the Series Finale?

David Chase Sheds Insight on The Sopranos Prequel Film Tony Soprano character will appear in prequel film 'The Many Saints of Newark'

Chase says he thought up this scene about two years before writing the actual finale, and it involved Tony driving to a meeting in NY with fellow mobster John Sack.

With groundbreaking TV series The Sopranos celebrating its 20th anniversary, show creator David Chase has shared a few details with Deadline about the upcoming prequel feature film, The Many Saints of Newark. There's really no wrong or right answer, but Chase does provide some insight in what he was intending to say with that final moment: "I meant to say that time here is precious and it could end at any moment, and somehow, love is the only defense against this very, very cold universe".

"Dickie, as he's mentioned throughout the "Sopranos" series, was an important figure in Tony's life", Nivola said. "I was interested in exploring that".

Now Chase has confirmed a young Tony will be part of the storyline. "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". Even after talking to Chase, Seitz and Sepinwall are still arguing about it.

Speaking about his motivation to return to the series after all this time, Chase told Deadline, "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". But the thing that interested me most was Tony's boyhood. But he began to rethink the idea in recent years when reminiscing about his own childhood experiences in the city of Newark.

Sepinwall: When you said there was an end point, you don't mean Tony at Holsten's, you just meant, "I think I have two more years" worth of stories left in me'. "It's going to depict when it was good". The mafia was very polished at that time, how they dressed and what they did. "These weren't guys who wore tracksuits, back then", he said.

Chase reteamed with fellow show writer Lawrence Konner to pen The Many Saints of Newark, which will be directed Alan Taylor, who previously took charge of a number of The Sopranos episodes.
