Called "the television landmark that leaves other landmarks in the dust," by the Washington Post, the first part of Season Six was hailed as a masterpiece by critics. In those episodes, Tony Soprano faced new challenges as his life grew increasingly more complicated. Back together with Carmela, he faced the reality that their kids were no longer children, and yet not grown. And with Johnny Sack in prison, the always-tense relations between the New Jersey and New York families were strained even further.
The person he would need is obviously series star James Gandolfini, who passed away at age 51 after suffering a sudden heart attack in June 2013. Naturally, it isn't known if David Chase is actually working on this story or not, but it's clear that he has a few ideas about what the show would be about, should it come to fruition.

Fans have wondered in the seven years that followed, whether Tony is alive or dead, although David Chase would never publicly reveal the mobster's fate.
Earlier today, Vox claimed that the series creator finally gave a concrete response, when a journalist asked David Chase if Tony Soprano was dead.Read More
