On the latest episode of their hugely popular 2023 podcast, the Osbourne family reflect in detail on their ’00s reality TV show, and are pretty unanimous in agreeing that another season will never, ever happen.

In an hour-long podcast, released today – entitled Therapy, Ketamine & The Osbournes TV Show Return: Inside Osbournes’ Mental Health Saga – Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly chat about the good and bad of their four-season MTV show, with Kelly sharing that it had a “massive negative” impact on her mental health. “It made me so insecure,” she admits.

Her father agrees that, “It sent me a bit crazy at times,” before going on to explain how, “It’s intrusive. I wanted a safe room where I could go and pick my nose or squeeze a zit if I wanted to, without it being on camera… when you’ve got hidden cameras, you start to fucking freak out.”

However, it wasn’t all bad, and The Prince Of Darkness does enthuse that, “Looking back it was the best diary that we’ve ever done – what a thing to leave your kids.” “I think it was great for all of us,” says Sharon later, “but it was time to end when we ended it.”

And indeed, the final episode – which aired on March 21, 2005 – will seemingly still remain the final episode, as Ozzy says of a potential future season: “It won’t happen again. Never in a million years.”

“And, to be honest with you,” adds Jack, “I don’t think it should.”

“No,” agrees Sharon. “It shouldn’t.”

But, while we won’t get any more episodes of The Osbournes on TV, there’s going to be something much more real coming soon: an Ozzy memorabilia museum.

Sharon revealed the news on the podcast last month, telling her kids: “I’ve been busy trying to get together daddy’s memorabilia for the memorabilia place that we’re opening in Birmingham.”

She explained: “He’s having all of his awards [in the museum], all his stage clothes, posters, old posters from [early incarnation of Sabbath] Earth days. I’ve got so much memorabilia.

“We’re gonna do it totally interactive – every video, every live show of your dad’s, everything there. It’s more of an educational thing for musicians and artists that wanna see that you can come from nothing, and if you work hard enough this is what you can get.

“We’re going to have a café, and in there we’re going to have every instrument you can think of. Music students can come in and we’re gonna do music classes, because there’s no music at schools anymore. We’re gonna get friends, other musicians to come in.”
