Sopranos creator can take his time on Season 6, HBO chairman says
NEW YORK (AP) – No Sopranos family members will be knocked off in 2005. That’s because HBO has announced that the sixth and final season of the popular mob drama won’t premiere until sometime in 2006.
“It’s like the Harry Potter book,” HBO chairman Chris Albrecht said last week. “You’ll wait very long and be happy when you get it.” The announcement was made during the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles.
Albrecht said The Sopranos creator and executive producer David Chase can take all the time he needs to write, hinting the final season could become longer than the 10 episodes Chase committed to in January.
The Sopranos wrapped up its fifth season recently.
“Until the last episode of The Sopranos airs, I’m always hopeful,” Albrecht said.
Other HBO shows that will live on include a fifth season of Larry David’s comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and sophomore seasons of the dark dramas Carnivale and Deadwood.
