It’s been over 10 years since the final episode of The Sopranos aired, but it’s time to return to that world with a prequel.
We were all obsessed with Tony Soprano and his family when they first entered our lives back in 1999. When the show’s final episode aired back in June of 2007, it was (and remains to be) one of the most talked about, controversial series finales ever with its abrupt, cut-to-black ending. Even if you weren’t quite old enough to watch the show when it originally aired, chances are, you’ve heard talk about how fired up people were when it came to that final episode.
While we aren’t getting any more information on what happened after that infamous black screen, we are getting to return to the world of Tony Soprano in a prequel film. And after a lot of anticipation, we not only have an official title for the movie, but we also know when the film is set to release.
According to Variety, the prequel will be called Newark, and will fittingly star the late James Gandolfini’s son, Michael, in the role of a young Tony Soprano. The movie is rumored to be set during the Newark riots of 1967, one of 159 race riots that erupted in the US that summer, resulting in 26 deaths.
Other characters from The Sopranos are supposed to appear in the movie, but there is no word on who those characters are, and who would be playing them. However, we do know that in addition to Michael Gandolfini, Newark will also star Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta, Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, and John Magaro.
If you’ve never seen The Sopranos, or if it has been several years since your last watch through of the series, you’re in luck. Newark isn’t set to release in theaters until September 25, 2020.
