Just as, seven years later, fans still talk about the ending of The Sopranos, creator David Chase returns time and again to the idea of a prequel.
Speaking with The Associated Press while promoting the release of the series on Blu-ray, Chase admitted he’s still intrigued by the thought of exploring the Soprano family’s past, something he first brought up in 2012.
“Even if I did [a prequel], it wouldn’t be The Sopranos that was on the air — obviously at least one person is gone that we would need,” Chase, referring to star James Gandolfini, who passed away last year. “There are a couple of eras that would be interesting for me to talk about, about Newark, New Jersey,” Chase continued. “One would be [the] late ’60s, early ’70s, about all the racial animosity, or the beginning, the really true beginning of the flood of drugs.”
Neither HBO nor Chase has confirmed any plans for a Sopranos prequel, but there’s always a chance.
