STAY OF EXECUTION
AnkleBitingPundits tipped me to some very welcomed news.
‘Sopranos’ Won’t Die Anytime Soon
When “The Sopranos” finally arrives next year for its sixth season, fans of the HBO mob drama will get more than they expected.
Eight “bonus” episodes are planned in addition to the 12 previously announced for the series, set to return in March 2006 after nearly two years without a first-run episode, HBO said Thursday.
There will be a break between the first set of episodes and the arrival of the extra eight hours in January 2007 but production on them will be continuous, HBO said.
The intermission between last season and the upcoming one will end up totaling a viewer-frustrating 21 months: The fifth year concluded in June 2004, although reruns have been airing.
Now if HBO would reconsider Carnivale and if Showtime would resuscitate Dead Like Me ... siiiiiiiigh.
