Turns out we didn't see the last of Tony Soprano.

Affection for the EGOT winner has never been higher, thanks to her scene-stealing turns in "One Day at a Time" and a highly anticipated cameo in Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story." But nothing will make you crush on the 89-year-old sensation more than this "American Masters" documentary celebrating her eight-decade career. (Oct. 6, TPT, Ch. 2)
No surprise that CBS is resurrecting one of the most popular franchises in its history. But few expected William Petersen to return as the enigmatic Gil Grissom.

'Dexter: New Blood'
If you were let down by the ending of the original series, you're not alone. Star Michael C. Hall and original showrunner Clyde Phillips seem to be treating this 10-part sequel as a chance to correct past sins.

'The Shrink Next Door'
Will Ferrell hasn't hit a home run since 2013's "Anchorman 2," but we've got a good feeling about his new sitcom in which he plays the victim of a creepy psychiatrist (Paul Rudd).

Word also has it that we'll finally see all 42 minutes of that rooftop concert. Yeah, yeah, yeah! (Nov. 25, Disney Plus)
