‘The Osbournes’ set for TV return on VH1

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne set to revive hit series after ten years off TV

The Osbournes is set to be revived by VH1.

The family drama focused on Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and first aired between 2002-2005. It launched the family into the spotlight and made celebrities of the rock couple’s children, Kelly and Jack.

The Hollywood Reporter states that the series will not return to its original home of MTV however and will, instead, air on sister network VH1. Speaking about the return of the series earlier this week, Sharon Osbourne said that newly sober Ozzy is keen to return to screens now that he is no longer drinking.

“Ozzy’s decided he wants to do another few episodes, about eight, of The Osbournes,” Sharon said. “It’s been 13 years since we first did it. He said for the three years we did [the show] he was drunk the whole time and he’d like to be sober.”

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne was honoured with the Global Icon award at the MTV EMA Awards over the weekend.

Ozzy was presented with his award by Slash, who said: “For four decades, the Prince of Darkness has rocked anyone who’s dared to listen. He scares the hell out of most people – and all bats. But to me he’s a gentleman, a killer performer, a collaborator and a rock ’n’ roll legend.”

Black Sabbath recently confirmed that they’ll record their final album in 2015.
