Friends, Breaking Bad, Lost, Urgences, Six Feet Under, Mad Men… The end of a series is a fascinating occurrence, and the sum of several years of introspection for both characters and audience. It can be the source of polemic and grief. Nine years later, The Sopranos creator David Chase is still called upon to explain the ambiguous final episode of his masterpiece. From LA to New Jersey, journalist and director Olivier Joyard explores this subject that is so specific to the art of the series, in the company of some key industry figures including Damon Lindelof (Lost), Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad), and Alan Ball (Six Feet Under).
