This is the best news I have heard in weeks:
The Sopranos,” the most successful series in the history of cable television, will not end with its fifth season but will instead have one more, lasting 10 episodes, Brad Grey, one of the show’s executive producers, said last night.
With the additional season, “The Sopranos” will end with 75 episodes on HBO, enough for a potential sale in syndication, which is likely to be among the most lucrative ever for a cable program.
“The big issue was the creative one that David had to make,” Mr. Grey said, referring to the show’s creator, David Chase. “He had to decide whether he had more stories to tell, and he decided that he did.”
As long as the last two seasons are as good as the first two, this is great news.
