More on Sopranos Extension, and Mondays With Dominic

Back in May, The Sopranos creator David Chase hinted on the vaunted HBO mob-opera’s website that the show’s upcoming sixth season — scheduled to debut March 2006 with 12 episodes — might not be its last. “It’s possible,” said Chase about extending the series while speaking at a breakfast for Syracuse University’s Newhouse School in New York. The sixth season of The Sopranos “is going to be about money, materialism, buying stuff, consumerism,” Chase said. “The U.S. is a great country, but everything is up for sale.”

HBO announced today that the “sale” will continue with eight bonus episodes regarding Tony S. and his extended dysfunctional family airing from January 2007.

The Emmy-winner first aired in 1999 and has followed an erratic programming schedule ever since.

Fans in the New York area can dull the pain of the wait by catching Dominic Chianese — Tony’s uncle, Junior Soprano, on the show — and his band, the New York Sidewalkers, playing a mix of Italian, folk and country tunes, every Monday night at 8 p.m. at The West Bank Cafe.

Eric Berlin has more news on the extension and predictions for the upcoming season.
