HBO Filming to begin on another 'Sopranos' season

Ask any true "Sopranos" fan and they'll be able to tell you that the last episode of their favorite mob drama aired back on June 6, 2004. It's a drought that hasn't gotten any easier to bear as it approaches the one-year point.

Fortunately, relief is on the way. In a call with reporters on Tuesday, "Sopranos" co-star Michael Imperioli revealed that production on the show's sixth season is set to begin April 29.

Before he returns to his Emmy-winning role as Christopher Moltisanti on the HBO drama, Imperioli is squeezing in a four-episode arc on NBC's "Law & amp; Order," filling in for Jesse L. Martin as Nick Falco, a young detective partnered with Dennis Farina's Joe Fontana. Imperioli's first "L & amp;O" appearance is scheduled for two days before lensing starts on "The Sopranos."

Unfortunately for rabid "Sopranos" aficionados, Imperioli only knows what day he'll be reporting for duty. He hasn't seen a single script and he doesn't know when new episodes will premiere, though he hazards a guess of either January or March of next year. All information about the fate of Johnny Sack or blowback from Adriana's death remains locked in creator David Chase's head, at least for the time being.

Imperioli says that while he's looking forward to rejoining the cast, he's never gotten antsy during the show's extra-long hiatus.

"I've always thought the story's going to end tragically -- for all of us," says Imperioli. "I don't think it's gonna be pretty."
