Did Tony die in The Sopranos finale? David Chase finally clears up the mystery

Updated:

By Sadie Gennis,

The Sopranos has been celebrated for its ambiguous series finale, which left the fate of mob boss Tony Soprano unknown.  But now creator David Chase has taken all of the mystery out of the revolutionary episode.

When Chase was asked if Tony's dead in an interview with Vox, he begrudgingly responded, "No. No he isn't." Other than mentioning that the infamous cut to black scene was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's poem, "Dream Within a Dream," that's all the information Chase divulged about Tony's fate.

The most memorable series finales ever

Though it must have been frustrating for Chase to only be asked this simple question rather than about many of the more interesting aspects of The Sopranos for years on end, we're glad he didn't go into more detail and wish he'd maintained his oath of silence completely. Ambiguity in television is OK and The Sopranos was the poster child for this type of destabilizing storytelling.

However, maybe some good will come of Chase's confession and David Lynch will be inspired to finally reveal exactly what happened to Cooper in Twin Peaks.
