Chase is on board for a prequel to be set in the 60s:

Considering the way Chase ended the series -- this prequel better have an amazing trailer to lure me back in!

...the way Chase ended the series...

The only episode I watched was the last, with a group of friends. There were quite a lot of different reactions to the ending, not all good. Some downright angry.

But I thought it was brilliant. If we read it as Tony Soprano getting whacked, then of course it all ends at exactly that moment.

As to a new series? Same names, different faces? I care not.

No interest whatsover. 

Personally, I took the meaning of the ending of THE SOPRANOS to be that it was up to each viewer to imagine what happened to Tony. But I still thought it was a crappy way to end the show.

(Obviously, with James Gandolfini's death, there's no real way to do a sequel without Tony having been whacked. Him being alive but in hiding/witness protection or having died a different way would be a major cop-out.)

The Sopranos was my favourite TV series and I'm not much
of an organized crime fan. It will probably always be my
second favourite series no matter what comes along to be
my #1 (cough... Game of Thrones... cough)

That said, the actors made the series for me, I have no
interest in a prequel series. (or a sequel series
either)

...

That's how I interpreted it. Ever the optimist, I saw the family finally getting together for a nice meal, ominous shots of the other patrons notwithstanding.

Now, THAT would be a cop-out!

I can't find a link - it may have been a US newspaper interview - but I seem to recall David Chase saying something like, "It's all there for those who look." So, with respect, guys, I don't agree it's down to individual interpretations.

My main problem* with the finale is that if we are to assume that Tony died at that moment, we have no idea who would have been behind it, as all of his known antagonists had been eliminated by the end of the episode. Chase had said that it's all there, but he neglected to add that one important piece.

*Plus, I felt cheated that I didn't get to see Carmella and the kids finally see the consequences of their acceptance of their mob family life. But that one is more of a personal thing.
