While The Sopranos came to end back in 2007, fans of the American crime drama series will get to see how young Anthony Soprano got his start in organized crime in the new prequel film The Many Saints of Newark and we have all the details on how you can watch it online.
Set in the 1960s in Newark, New Jersey, The Many Saints of Newark tells the origin story of Tony Soprano who grew up during one of the most tumultuous eras in the city's history.

After getting kicked out of school, Anthony Soprano (Michael Gandolfini) is taken under the wing of his uncle Dickie Moltisani (Alessandro Nivola) who wants to do right by his family. Dickie introduces Anthony into the world of organized crime in Newark which at the time is run by the all-powerful DiMeo crime family. However, rival gangsters then try to challenge the DiMeo crime family's hold on the city.
Despite the fact that James Gandolfini passed away back in 2013, he'll also make an appearance in The Many Saints of Newark as the voice of older Tony Soprano. Meanwhile his son Micahel Gandolfini, who made his film debut in 2018's Ocean's 8, will play the role of teenage Anthony Soprano and William Ludwig will portray an even younger version of the character.
Depending on the success of The Many Saints of Newark, David chase who created the characters in The Sopranos and wrote and produced the new film has said that he's open to making a sequel to it which would follow Tony Soprano in his 20s.
