Jump to: navigation, search

The Sopranos, a television drama series created by David Chase, premiered on the premium television channel HBO in the United States on January 10, 1999 and ended on June 10, 2007.[1]

The series consists of a total of 86 episodes over six seasons. The first five seasons each consist of thirteen episodes; the sixth season comprises twenty-one. HBO broadcast the sixth season in two parts: Part 1 ran from March to June 2006 and featured twelve episodes; Part 2 ran from April to June 2007 and included nine. HBO also released each part of the season as separate DVD boxsets,[2] effectively turning the second part into a short seventh season, although this is not recognized by the show's makers or HBO.[3] All six seasons are available on DVD in Regions 1, 2, 3, and 4.[2]

Unlike most network and cable that put their television programs on a four month hiatus between seasons, The Sopranos took longer hiatuses between seasons. Season four, for example, premiered sixteen months after the third season finale,[4] and the sixth season returned almost two years after the end of season five.[5]

The Sopranos stars James Gandolfini as the Italian-American New Jersey-based mobster Tony Soprano.[6] Edie Falco plays his wife Carmela Soprano,[7] and Lorraine Bracco as his psychiatrist Dr. Jennifer Melfi.[8] The continuing story arc of The Sopranos is of how Tony Soprano deals with the often conflicting requirements of his home life and the criminal organization he heads.[9]
