It's been over a decade since MTV closed the book on The Osbournes, their popular reality series chronicling the crazy everyday lives of metal's most famous family. Thirteen years after the show's finale, Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack are stepping into the limelight once more with "The Osbourne Podcast," a weekly podcast launching next month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The program, hosted by Jack, will have the family sitting down each week to reflect on their experiences as reality TV stars, give updates on their lives as of late, and interview special guests. Comedian Sheryl Underwood, singer Carnie Wilson and The Osbournes executive producer Greg Johnson are all set to make appearances, along with some fan favorites from the TV show, like "Big Dave the Manny" and Melinda Varga.
"There's been talk about bringing The Osbournes back, but it would never work," Jack told The Hollywood Reporter. "I thought, 'Well, this is probably the next best thing.'" What's more, he says the family have been watching old episodes of the show amid their recording sessions. "It's really quite awkward to watch, especially now as a parent," he notes — but the bluntness fans have come to expect isn't going anywhere. "Everyone is really open and honest about a lot of things," he says of "The Osbourne Podcast." "It's pretty candid."
"The Osbournes Podcast" premieres on March 5th — the 16th anniversary of the show's MTV debut. New episodes will premiere every Monday.
Widely credited as the first celebrity-featuring "fly-on-the-wall" reality show, The Osbournes aired from 2002 through 2005, with four seasons in total; the inaugural season even won an Emmy Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program.
