Wild and Whacky ‘The Osbournes’ Returns to MTV
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – They’ve met the Queen of England and President Bush. They’ve won their first Emmy Award, battled cancer, taken in another teenager and more dogs. Now television’s wildest family is ready again for prime time.
British rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his raucous, foul-mouthed clan will return to the tube on Nov. 26, kicking off a second season of MTV’s highest-rated show, the Viacom Inc.-owned cable music network said on Tuesday.
The future of “The Osbournes,” which became an overnight media sensation last season, was thrown into doubt after Osbourne’s wife and manager, Sharon, was diagnosed with colon cancer over the summer.
But the family decided to pick up where they left off last spring with 10 new episodes chronicling their lives in Beverly Hills as they simultaneously adjust to heightened fame and Sharon Osbourne’s illness.
“We are excited to invite the world into our home for another dose of Osbourne insanity,” Sharon Osbourne said in a statement issued by MTV. “This season the show takes on a whole new meaning as we share the highs and lows of the last six months with our viewers. With the Osbournes, you never know what you’re gonna get.”
The first season followed the daily exploits of the 53-year-old heavy metal legend in his off-stage role as a befuddled father puttering around his house, forever cleaning up after his incontinent dogs, taking orders from his wife, and sparring with their teenage children, Kelly and Jack.
The bleep-filled series became MTV’s biggest hit, earned an Emmy as television’s best “reality” series and turned the family into instant pop culture figures.
Ozzy-mania even extended to Buckingham Palace, where rock’s heavily tattooed “Prince of Darkness” was introduced to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month at the Golden Jubilee pop concert in her honor.
This season, the show will feature a new member of the clan, 18-year-old Robert Marcato, a family friend whose mother recently died of cancer and has moved in with the Osbournes. They are in the process of legally adopting him.
Melinda the nanny also will return, along with an ever-expanding collection of dogs and cats and various other characters who drift in and out of the Osbourne household.
The show also will incorporate scenes from Ozzy’s touring schedule over the summer, a trip to Washington last May to dine with the president, and Kelly’s bid to launch a recording career as a singer.
