HBO’s The Sopranos has long been considered the “Godfather” of this current Golden Age of Television, and though it paved the way for a number of other incredible series like Mad Men and Breaking Bad, it still just might be the best of the bunch. HBO started releasing the James Gandolfini-fronted drama on Blu-ray in 2006, but inexplicably stopped after only releasing Blu-ray upgrades for seasons one and six. Well now the entirety of The Sopranos is finally coming to Blu-ray later this year in a box set, complete a brand new featurette. In addition to the extras that were included on the complete series DVD set, this new Blu-ray collection features “Defining a Television Landmark”, which runs 45 minutes in length and includes new interviews with everyone from Gandolfini and show creator David Chase, to director Steven Soderbergh and actor Jeff Daniels.

But the real draw here is finally being able to own all 86 episodes of quite possibly the best television show of all time in glorious high-definition when the set hits stores on November 4th. The news of The Sopranos: The Complete Series finally coming to Blu-ray comes courtesy of THR, which adds that the box set will retail for $279.98. The November release date ensures that this will be a hot item for holiday shopping, so here’s hoping that includes a decent sale price.
