Sharon Osbourne announced on The Talk Tuesday that her infamous family will produce up to eight episodes as a way to update fans (where they will air is still being determined). “It’s been so long our family has grown,” Osbourne told her fellow co-hosts on the CBS talker. “We have a gorgeous daughter-in-law.” Osbourne credits her longtime husband Ozzy for coming up with the idea to bring back the program. “He looked back on his life and he said, ‘I wish we could have done The Osbournes now where I’m clean and sober.’ So much to talk about … Ozzy is coming up with his last tour with Black Sabbath.” The Osbournes aired from 2002 to 2005 and even won an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. It’s widely credited for kicking off a whole new wave of unscripted series that document the private lives of celebrities. Take a look at Sharon’s announcement: Want more stories like this?
