We've got more juicy details about the Sopranos prequel

All the way to the 1960's when the upcoming Soprano's prequel, The Many Saints of Newark, will take place.

It was a NY night out for Edie Falco and the stars of "The Sopranos" as they reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the show's debut.

"Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end", says Chase, who has consistently refused to elaborate on theories that the ending symbolizes Tony's point of view going dark when he's assassinated in the restaurant.

Nivola said his character, Dickie Moltisani, will be "the central character", and that the title references the name Moltisani, which means "many saints" in Italian. Some argue the sudden end (and the stuff leading up to it) means mob boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) was whacked, while others haven't stopped believin' that Tony is still alive.

Also attending the anniversary event were Michael Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti, Tony Sirico, who played Paul "Paulie Walnuts" Gualtieri and Steven Van Zandt, who played Silvio Dante.

"Dickie, as he's mentioned throughout the "Sopranos" series, was an important figure in Tony's life", Nivola said.

While the episodes will all tell different stories, there will be one constant in the form of Dr. WEIRD CITY captures the unease of modern urban living, in a freaky and peculiar lens.

The film begins in 1967 with the backdrop of the race riots that tore through Newark, New Jersey.

"I loved how the series ended because I think that there was no way everybody was gonna be happy", cast member Edie Falco told "Entertainment Tonight" on Wednesday.

Another coincidence connects his own family to the show: An episode in the second season shows Soprano visiting Naples, Italy, and in one of the scenes, just over Gandolfini's shoulder, is seen a sculpture - made by Nivola's grandfather, the artist Constantino Nivola. "So it was meant to be or something", Alessandro Nivola said.

The Sopranos has been named by many critics as the greatest TV show of all time and is credited with paving the way for more mature series on the small screen, including The Wire, Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones.

"So, I got a little time to hang out in social clubs before then", Nivola joked.
