Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon Osbourne and Jack and Kelly Osbourne are heading back to reality television with a revival of their breakout show, The Osbournes.

VH1 To Air New Episodes Of The Osbournes

After years of speculation, The Osbournes will finally make a triumphant return to television, with a handful of new episodes to air on VH1. The original series, The Osbournes, premiered on MTV in 2002, and was an instant hit. One of MTV’s first real breakout reality shows, The Osbournes created a splash with their wild personalities and love of swearing. The show ended after four seasons and helped launch the careers of Sharon, who is now a co-host of The Talk, Kelly, a regular on E!’s Fashion Police, and Jack, a television producer.

Sharon Osbourne Confirms Return Of The Osbournes

According to reports, a deal with VH1 is coming to a close – VH1 and MTV are both owned by Viacom – but, as such, nothing has been officially announced by the network. Sharon, however, confirmed on The Talk that the family would be returning to reality television, revealing that the idea to return to the show was actually Ozzy’s idea. “It was all my husband’s doing, because he looked back on his life and he said, ‘I wish we could have done The Osbournes now when I’m clean and sober,’” Sharon said, proudly.

Sharon also revealed that the show would likely be a bit different from the original, saying, “At most, there will be only six to eight episodes, and it’s a catch up on our lives and where we are now because it’s been so long since we’ve been seen as a family, and our family has grown. We have a granddaughter and a gorgeous daughter-in-law.”
