The Sopranos original title sequence featured a prominent view of Lower Manhattan and the World Trade Center reflected in the passenger mirror of Tony Soprano's Chevrolet Suburban.

The accompanying title credited Lorraine Bracco as Dr. Jennifer Melfi.

Was this shot removed from the opening credits following the 9/11 terrorist attacks? If so, how were the scenes modified?

Have the creators of the show and/or the title sequence commented on the Twin Towers' presence in the opening credits following their destruction?

That shot is there in Season 3, broadcast early 2001.

By season 4 in 2002 it is replaced by two very generic scenery shots, which remained until the very last episode.

As to whether anyone commented on it, I don't know, but there was more than enough to occupy people's thoughts without production needing to come up with an explanation for its removal.
