The Osbournes may be coming back to TV – but at a different cable channel this time.
VH1 is deep in talks with the celebrity family to revive the decade-old docu-soap series, which ran on sister channel MTV for three seasons starting in 2002. The Talk co-host and Osbourne matriarch Sharon Osbourne announced on Tuesday the format would return for six or eight episodes, but she did not specify a network.
If the deal comes together, the reboot would re-team rocker dad Ozzy and Sharon, plus their kids Jack (Jack Osbourne: Adrenaline Junkie) and Kelly (Dancing With the Stars), both of whom have developed individual careers in the reality TV space.
A previous attempt to re-capture the spark of the original series, Fox’s Osbournes Reloaded variety show, aired in 2009 as a special and was quickly axed. A VH1 publicist had no comment.
