Former Sopranos stars Michael Imperioli and Vincent Curatola have made a deal to appear in the final eight episodes of the mob drama.

The Hollywood Reporter says other key players, including Tony Sirico and Steve Van Zandt, are still in discussions. Imperioli won an Emmy for his role as Christopher Moltisanti and Curatola plays New York boss Johnny "Sack" Sacramoni on The Sopranos.

The final episodes of The Sopranos will air next year on HBO.
