From 2002 to 2005, The Osbournes was the show to watch. Airing on MTV, this reality series followed the everyday life of Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne and his family. Now, we are getting a revival, but not in a form you would expect. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ozzy, alongside his wife Sharon and kids Jack and Kelly, will return to share their lives with the fans via weekly podcast series that will start airing on March 5. In The Osbournes Podcast, the family will have a weekly sitdown and discuss their time on The Osbournes, interview some of their friends and give the audience updates about their current whereabouts.

“There’s been talk about bringing The Osbournes back, but it would never work,” said Jack Osbourne, who will serve as the host of the podcast. “I thought, ‘Well, this is probably the next best thing.'”

The guest list of The Osbournes Podcast includes Sheryl Underwood, Carnie Wilson, and Greg Johnston, while some familiar faces from the show will also make an appearance including Big Dave the Manny and Melinda Varga.

Jack promises that the fans will get the same insight into their lives via podcast as they did when The Osbournes aired on MTV.

“Everyone is really open and honest about a lot of things,” he added. “It’s pretty candid.”

During its time on TV, The Osbournes was extremely popular, achieving the highest ratings in MTV’s history as well as winning a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program in 2002. Since the show ended in 2005, there were several attempts for a revival including the one in 2015 when several new episodes were recorded. The project was abandoned shortly and the episodes never made it on TV.

Ozzy and Jack eventually made their return to the TV without the female part of the family, starring in History’s Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour, in which they explore interesting sites in world’s history.
