The 2007 Sopranos finale on HBO was one of the most talked about and controversial series finales of all time. Who could forget that final scene in the diner, as Tony sat with his family while enjoying a plate of onion rings, as Journey's Don't' Stop Believin blared on the nearby jukebox. There seemed to some sort of ominous tone however. Would Tony finally meet his own demise that night in front of his family? Suddenly, everything cuts off and the scene goes to black...then the credits role. So many unanswered questions...

Now we may finally have the answer to the burning question. According to this article on Vox, Martha P. Nochimson says that series creator David Chase told her, himself, that Tony IS NOT dead.

From her piece on Vox

We were in a tiny coffee shop, when, in the middle of a low-key chat about a writing problem I was having, I popped the question. Chase startled me by turning toward me and saying with sudden, explosive anger, 'Why are we talking about this?' I answered, 'I'm just curious.' And then, for whatever reason, he told me. And I will tell you. "

"No"

"No he isn't."

So there you have it.
