'Sharoooon!': The Osbournes TV show is getting a reboot 20 years on

Not only is he the Prince Of Darkness and a pioneer of metal music, Ozzy Osbourne and his family also led the way in reality TV with their show 'The Osbournes' back in 2002. 

The MTV series was one of the first of its kind, and took viewers inside the Black Sabbath frontman's LA home where he lived with his kids, Jack and Kelly, his wife Sharon, and their many dogs and cats. 

Fans of the Ozzman were beyond stoked to get to see a softer, funnier, more absurd side to the music legend, with catchphrases like his trademark "Sharooooon!" becoming a part of pop culture forever. 

Now Ozzy and the family have decided to leave the US of A for good and head home to Britain, and they're taking BBC cameras with them. 

"In this new series, our audience will be able to follow the family as they settle back into their new life in a Buckinghamshire village," a blurb about the show reads. 

"It promises to be a funny, moving and honest insight into their new life back in the UK." 

The 'Iron Man' had a few different reasons for the move, including the state of gun violence in America. 

"Everything’s fucking ridiculous there. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings," he told the Guardian

"And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert … It’s fucking crazy." 

Ozzy also said he didn't want to die in America, lest he be buried in 'Forest Lawn, where celebrities like Bette Davis, Paul Walker and Brittany Murphy were laid to rest. 

The 73-year-old recently released his thirteenth solo album, Patient Number 9, while Sharon launched her own talk show earlier this year. 

The original Osbournes show ran until 2005, achieved the highest ratings in MTV history, and even won an Emmy.
