Hit reality show The Osbournes is to return for a new mini-season because rocker Ozzy Osbourne was too drunk to remember its original TV run.
The fly-on-the-wall program, which charted in gruesome detail the chaotic home life of the Black Sabbath frontman and his wild-living family, became a huge hit on its debut in 2002 and ran for four seasons until 2005.
The rocker’s wife Sharon has now revealed the family has agreed to shoot a new mini-series of the show, comprising of eight episodes, to bring viewers up to date with the family.
Paranoid hitmaker Ozzy, who has often said he hated the programme, is keen to get the cameras rolling as he was too drunk to enjoy it the first time around, but he has since sobered up.
Sharon tells U.K. talk show Loose Women, “Ozzy has decided that he wants to do another few episodes – not a whole season, about eight episodes – of The Osbournes. It’s been 13 years since the last one (sic). He said that for the whole three years (sic) that we did it he was drunk the whole time so he said he would like to do one where he is completely sober, as he is now…
“It’s not forever. It’s no more than eight episodes. Because it’s been 13 years (sic) and our lives have changed so much, it’s a kind of catch up. It’s like, ‘What are they doing now?’ – that’s it.”
The cameras are due to start rolling at the family’s California home in January.
