HBO won’t reboot reveals as a lot as different networks, however even they are not proof against the present development in Hollywood. The community is presently growing a brand new season of The Comeback, and has lengthy been working in the direction of a Deadwood film. These two reveals could also be the place the road is drawn although, as HBO president Casey Bloys stated there aren’t any plans to reboot reveals like The Sopranos or Six Toes Beneath.
There aren’t any different discussions about bringing something again. I do not assume there’s any purpose to dig up Six Toes Beneath, go away it the place it’s, it’s nice. Or The Sopranos. We’ve a lot coming, I am enthusiastic about that and do not feel the necessity.
Casey Bloys stated that HBO has too many reveals on the way in which to even consider rebooting stuff like Six Toes Beneath and The Sopranos, after which ran by means of a listing of issues that HBO subscribers should sit up for. Along with new seasons of acclaimed reveals like Westworld and Huge Little Lies in 2018, the community has a couple of new tasks within the works in addition to Recreation of Thrones approaching in 2019. With all that coming down the pipeline, why would HBO even take into account bringing again a few of its beloved traditional reveals?
Rebooting a present like Six Toes Beneath or The Sopranos might be extremely divisive. David Chase, the creator of The Sopranos, has incessantly said prior to now he wouldn’t carry again the collection after the occasions of the unique, so its arduous to think about him being on board with any reboot. That stated, Chase talked about final yr he would take into account a prequel series, and if he is critical about making that occur, it is arduous to think about a situation the place HBO would shoot him down.
Whereas rebooting The Sopranos would undoubtedly increase a couple of eyebrows, it is nearly worse to think about what fan response would come of rebooting Six Toes Beneath. The collection is near-universally acclaimed as probably the greatest dramas on tv, and is broadly regarded to have one of many best series finales of all time. A reboot would solely tarnish the unique present’s legacy, which is probably going why HBO advised these on the TCA winter press tour (through Deadline) it is not even contemplating bringing it again.
The Sopranos and Six Toes Beneath are each out there to stream on HBO’s on-demand providers. For extra on different issues the community has coming down the pipeline, it seems to be just like the upcoming Recreation of Thrones spinoff could also be premiering later than most would assume.
