HBO Revives 'The Sopranos' On Demand Following James Gandolfini's Death
The cable network will also air the actor's documentary, "Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq," on July 4.
HBO is bringing The Sopranos back to its subscribers. The landmark series, which starred the late James Gandolfini, returns to its On Demand service as of Monday.
The network will bring back all six seasons of the David Chase mob drama, releasing one a month for six consecutive months. Season one will be available through the end of July.
The Sopranos, which still has all of its episodes available on the network's HBO Go service, recently saw online sales jump in the wake of Gandolfini's sudden death on June 19 at age 51. The series momentarily climbed to the top of the iTunes charts, and the first four seasons are still lingering in the top 100 downloads of the TV section.
HBO will also honor Gandolfini and veterans this Fourth of July with a rebroadcast of his 2007 documentary, Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq. The one-hour special will air at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday. Alive Day Memories was nominated for three Primetime Emmys, including one for executive producer Gandolfini.
