After a five year hiatus, Ozzy Osbourne and his crazy family are reviving their podcast!
It’s been announced that the second season of The Osbournes podcast, featuring Ozzy, Sharon and their kids Kelly and Jack Osbourne is all set to launch today, September 12th.
Last week, the podcast’s Instagram account was revived with an announcement post, revealing the Osbourne’s are ready to “unleash the chaos!”
“The Osbourne’s are BACK, and we’re louder than ever,” the caption read. “Get ready for a wild ride with our new podcast, launching September 12th.
“Join us every Tuesday, as we dive into the worlds of celebrity, true crime, rock and roll, culture, and whatever else we damn well please.”
The post was signed off with “It’s gonna be a hell of a ride!” and was posted alongside a video of the Osbourne’s announcing their return and having a bit of their classic banter.
The podcast will be filmed and recorded in Ozzy and Sharon’s home, and is a follow-up season to their podcast they launched in 2018. This season will feature 20 episodes, and will be available to watch or listen to on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple.
Sharon told Rolling Stone that “nothing is off limits,” and based on the snippets they’ve already released on their Instagram, we reckon this podcast is gonna be a goodie for fans of the family.
Ozzy will also get some of his own individual episodes, where he’ll be joined by his longtime friend and fellow musician Billy Morrison, where they’ll cover his time in Black Sabbath, and much more.
A couple of teasers and a show trailer are already available to watch, and we’re assuming the first full episode will either be released later today for us in NZ, or tomorrow when it hits Tuesday for the rest of the world.
Elsewhere, Ozzy’s family have recently chatted about how utterly gutted Ozzy is to be missing out on Power Trip festival.
The Black Sabbath frontman, 74, announced in July he had made the "painful" decision to cancel his gig at the three day heavy metal extravaganza at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California due to his ongoing health issues, and his family have admitted they can't discuss the topic at home because he finds it too upsetting.
Kelly told Rolling Stone magazine: “We can’t talk about it in the house because it is just so heartbreaking to see that all he wants is just one more show."
Sharon added: “And Ozzy wants to be on that show with all his friends.
“It’s heartbreaking for him to see everybody going on, and he’s just left behind.”
The pair admitted Ozzy is capable of singing his hits for fans, but he doesn't want to leave them feeling short-changed by having to do the gig without moving around.
Kelly said: “He could do it right now if he sat in a chair. because the voice is there; there’s nothing wrong with the voice.
“He said that if he can’t give his fans what they paid to see, he won’t do it. There is nobody that loves their friends as much as Dad does.”
Sharon agreed, noting her husband is still a fan himself and knows what it's like to be one.
The former 'X Factor' judge admitted the 'Paranoid' rocker is on the mend in his recovery from surgery following a fall in 2019.
She said: “He’s doing a lot better."
Ozzy - who has Parkinson's disease - previously admitted he didn't want to put on a "half-a****" performance for fans.
Announcing his decision to bow out of the festival, he wrote: "As painful as this is, I’ve had to make the decision to bow out of performing on Power Trip in October.
“My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer to do this show came in, I optimistically moved forward.
“Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-a****.”
Judas Priest have replaced Ozzy on the bill for the festival.
