The Sopranos is the best series ever made for television, period. Your argument to the contrary is futile, please stop. So when HBO revealed they're open to rebooting the greatest series ever made, it prompted mixed reactions from the public.
It’s been over twelve years since the final episode unexpectedly cut to black, and while there were plenty of fans out there who wanted closure in the form of some sort of followup (even though the mystery of Tony’s fate wasn’t actually that mysterious in hindsight), it appeared that was off the table when James Gandolfini passed away in 2013.
Speculation of a Sopranos movie turned into reality in the past year or so, when show creator David Chase detailed plans for a prequel-type movie, which will feature James Gandolini's son Michael. The movie is slated for September of 2020 and is tentatively titled The Many Saints of Newark. Now, HBO says it's open to rebooting the iconic series.
According to Deadline, HBO executive Casey Bloys was recently asked about the possibility of The Sopranos getting the reboot treatment, and while he said nothing is currently in the works, the network is apparently open to bringing the show back in some shape or form if the situation is right:
“I keep saying ‘never say never. There are no plans, there is no discussions about it, but [Michael] is a really good actor, we had him on The Deuce. There is nothing on the table at the moment but I will stay open.”
Personally, I think this is a bad idea. It will be hard... scratch that... nearly impossible to duplicate the success of the original Sopranos series, which arguably changed the television landscape. We can't let greed get in the way of the legacy of such work. It's a disservice to the writing, the acting, and the overall package that was/is The Sopranos.
