"The Sopranos" creator David Chase said he's not opposed to doing a prequel for the series. Despite nixing ideas of spinoffs before, the writer and executive producer has become more open to the possibility that the spirit of the show could live on.

As David Chase reflects on the show's 10th anniversary since the finale with Entertainment Weekly, he said he could see himself "conceiving" a prequel for “The Sopranos.” In previous interviews, Chase shot down ideas for a follow-up especially because the cast members were growing up and getting older. He certainly wasn't open to recasting the actors as well.

Nothing in development yet

HBO, however, has no plans of developing any show or spinoff related to the mafia drama and David Chase wants that cleared up. If the network should move forward with one, however, for the show creator, the series must return as a prequel and not a sequel.

HBO bagged several awards when "The Sopranos" aired on the network from 1997 to 2007. It ushered in what the industry called the Golden Age of Television and gave birth to the anti-heroes being the show's lead characters.

The unforgettable ending

"The Sopranos" dropped off television on June 10, 2007, and even as many years have passed, viewers can't still get over how the show ended. The family, led by James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, were sitting at a diner and the camera shots hinted something bad was about to happen to Tony and his family.

Viewers were surprised, however, when the scene went completely blank. Viewers thought either the power went out or HBO cut off their subscription just as the most important moment played out.

For years, David Chase refused to answer what that ending was about. For years, viewers came up to their own conclusion that the Soprano family was either wiped out by Tony’s enemies as a mafia or lived happily ever after despite their dysfunction.

Where are they now?

James Gandolfini died due to a heart attack while vacationing with his wife and kids in Italy in 2013. He was 51 years old.

Edie Falco (Carmela Soprano) went on to star in the show "Nurse Jackie." As with her work in "The Sopranos," the actress was also constantly nominated for an Emmy for this show.

"Nurse Jackie" ended in 2015. She's currently in the cast of "Horace and Pete."

Jamie Lynn Siegler (Meadow Soprano) worked on "Entourage" and a short-lived sitcom called "Guys with Kids." She married baseball player Cutter Dykstra in 2016. They have a son, Beau, born in 2013.
