David Chase says he's been hearing about an uptick in Sopranos viewing since last summer, long before the coronavirus lockdown led many to binge-watch his HBO series. “It blows my mind," he tells Variety. "It’s obviously great news. As far as Gen-Z or any other generation, one thing I was always worried about with The Sopranos; was relevance in reruns, because I thought that the references and stuff would fade away — wouldn’t be there — the products, music or whatever, but I guess it still seems contemporary." Chase says he also enjoys recently seeing "the bickering about the end and the arguments, the slander. I’ve enjoyed it all, every minute. I was glad that people have different interpretations about it. That’s what it was all about. I’m glad the show is — what should I say? — thick enough that people can see new things in it all the time. That’s what we were trying to do very hard. There was so much detail (we put into it), and I’m glad that more of it’s coming out now." Chase, who's been working on Sopranos prequel move The Many Saints of Newark, was also asked if The Sopranos can come back for more stories, or as a reimagined series. "I make no predictions, really," he says. "I don’t think about that stuff. But if what happened to The Wonder Years (currently being developed as a reboot featuring Black lead characters) happens to The Sopranos, that’s got to be kind of weird." Chase added: "And when I say The Wonder Years and The Sopranos, that would be quite a bit of work. It would probably be cool, actually, but it would be quite a bit of work."
