Fans of The Sopranos got quite the surprise when tuning in for this year’s Super Bowl. 

Jamie-Lynn Sigler reprised her iconic role as Meadow Soprano from the HBO series for a Chevrolet ad, as she was joined by Robert Iler—who played A.J. Soprano in the show. 

The on-screen siblings embraced for a hug in the clip, focusing on the first-ever Chevy Silverado EV, in an ad that was also the brainchild of original show creator David Chase and series cinematographer Phil Abraham. As the ad boasts a “whole new truck” for a “whole new generation,” the thing is soundtracked by “Woke Up This Morning” by Alabama 3, the theme song for the still-thriving series. 

“When I got the call about this commercial, the whole concept made such perfect sense: it’s Chevrolet coming out with this all-new Silverado EV. It’s about a new generation, which Meadow and A.J. represent,” Sigler said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I thought it was a brilliant idea. And then when they told me David Chase was onboard and Phil Abraham was going to be [the cinematographer], it was so special. It was a dream to do. I had chills the entire time.”

Sigler also spoke on the potential of her returning for a series revival after Chase signed a recent Warner Bros. deal, telling the publication that “I don’t think that David could get the full sentence out before I would jump in and say, ‘Yes!’” 

Sopranos fans are also rightfully freaking out about the ad spot, which comes 15 years after the series ended back in 2007. Some think the ad fits right into the series’ cannon, while others are just happy to see Meadow behind the wheel. See what Twitter users have to say about the star-studded Chevy ad spot below.
