The critically acclaimed, Emmy and Peabody-winning HBO series "The Sopranos" returns for the second part of its sixth season with additional eight episodes in 2007.

In the first part of Season Six of "The Sopranos," Tony Soprano faced new challenges as his life grew increasingly more complicated. With he and Carmela back together, they faced the reality that their kids were no longer children, but not yet grown. And with Johnny Sack in prison, the always-tense relations between the New Jersey and New York families were strained even further.

Creator David Chase's drama series "The Sopranos" stars three-time Emmy winners James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano and Edie Falco as Tony's wife Carmela, plus Lorraine Bracco as therapist Dr. Jennifer Melfi, Emmy winner Michael Imperioli as Tony's nephew Christopher Moltisanti, and Dominic Chianese as Uncle Junior. Also on hand for the start of Season Six, were regulars Robert Iler as Anthony Soprano, Jr., Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Meadow Soprano, Tony Sirico as Paulie Walnuts, and Steven Van Zandt as Silvio Dante.

Aida Turturro, who plays Tony's sister Janice, returned to "The Sopranos" as a series regular, as well as Steven R. Schirripa as Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri, John Ventimiglia as Artie Bucco and Vincent Curatola as Johnny Sack.

Other Season Six cast members of "The Sopranos" were Ray Abruzzo as Carmine, Frank Vincent as Phil Leotardo, Joe Gannascoli as Vito Spatafore, Max Casella as Benny, Lenny Venito as Murmur, Carl Capotoro as Little Paulie, Dan Grimaldi as Patsy, Katherine Narducci as Charmaine Bucco, Sharon Angela as Rosalie Aprile, Maureen Van Zandt as Gabrielle Dante and Toni Kalem as Angie Bompensiero.

Guest stars for part one of the sixth season of "The Sopranos" included Jerry Adler ("In Her Shoes"), Tim Daly ("Wings"), Frankie Valli (Four Seasons lead singer), Hal Holbrook ("Men of Honor"), Ben Kingsley ("House of Sand and Fog"), Julianna Margulies ("ER"), Treach (HBO's "First Time Felon"), Ron Leibman ("Garden State"), Elizabeth Bracco ("Analyze This") and Lord Jamar (HBO's "Oz").

Veteran directors of "The Sopranos" who returned were Jack Bender, Steve Buscemi, Alan Taylor and Tim Van Patten. Directing episodes for the first time were Danny Leiner ("Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle"), David Nutter (HBO's "Band of Brothers") and Steve Shill (HBO's "Rome" and "Deadwood").

Among the writers for Season Six of "The Sopranos" were Emmy winner David Chase, Emmy winner Terence Winter, Matthew Weiner and Diane Frolov & Andrew Schneider.

In 2004, "The Sopranos" won four Emmys, including Drama Series; Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Michael Imperioli); Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Drea de Matteo); and Writing for a Drama Series (Terence Winter, "Long Term Parking"). "The Sopranos" has also won five Golden Globe Awards, including the award in the Best Television Series - Drama category in 2000.
