The film hit theaters in 2021, but if you didn’t get a chance to watch it (or want to see it again), be sure to tune in. The movie is a sequel to The Sopranos, and it takes place during the Newark riots in the ’60s. The role of young Tony Soprano is played by James Gandolfini’s son, Michael.

Based on the best-selling book by Casey McQuiston, the story revolves around America’s First Son (Taylor Zakhar Perez) as he meets and falls for a prince (Nicholas Galitzine). The question is: How will their families react?

  • Premiere date: August 18

Meet Mickey (played by Jaden Michael), a teenager who’s begrudgingly living with his aunt while his mom is in rehab. Mickey begins to question his own reality when a mysterious woman claims his father isn’t dead after all.
