January 2024 marks the 25th anniversary of HBO’s groundbreaking mafia drama The Sopranos, and in honor of the occasion, HBO Max streaming service will mark it with everything from the release of never-before-seen footage from the show to events and much more.
Starting January 8, The Sopranos: 25th Anniversary collection became available on the service. It includes 15 deleted scenes, three of which have never been released until now, as well as more than five hours of behind-the-scenes featurette content. That new content, of course, is in addition to all 86 episodes across the show’s six seasons being available to stream on Max.
Furthermore, in honor of the anniversary, some episodes of The Sopranos will be available to sample through select free on-demand platforms. Episodes one and two from the show’s first season, for example, are accessible right now on Max’s YouTube channel. Fans are also encouraged to follow @TheSopranos on TikTok, which is where they can relive each episode in 25-second chunks.
Among other festivities planned to celebrate the series from creator David Chase, guests of the renowned New York City Italian restaurant Da Nico (from Jan. 11 through Feb. 4) can enjoy a special menu of Sopranos-inspired dishes, including Carmela’s Baked Ziti and Satriale’s Special Caprese.
Max is also partnering with Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler for a special 25th Anniversary Edition of their podcast, Not Today, Pal. They’ll reminisce about their roles as Meadow and AJ on The Sopranos and answer questions from fans, and the full episode will be available on Jan. 18 via the HBO YouTube channel and all major podcast platforms.
