It goes without saying that “The Sopranos” is one of the most beloved and acclaimed television series of all time. Nominated for 111 Primetime Emmy Awards across its eight-year run on HBO, the mafia drama picked up 21 trophies and won twice for Outstanding Drama Series (after being nominated in the top category for every season). Fourteen years after wrapping its 86-episode six-season run, “The Sopranos” remains as popular as ever, with the pandemic igniting a surge of quarantine “Sopranos” binging over the last year and change (visit GQ’s report here). All of this is to say that anticipation could not be higher for the upcoming “Sopranos” prequel movie “The Many Saints of Newark.”

Warner Bros. and New Line officially announced “The Many Saints of Newark” on March 8, 2019, with Warner Bros Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich saying in a statement, “[Creator] David Chase is a masterful storyteller and we, along with our colleagues at HBO, are thrilled that he has decided to revisit, and enlarge, the Soprano universe in a feature film.”
