Published Jul 09, 2020While we recently learned an Ozzy Osbourne biopic is in the works, the Prince of Darkness will first join his family for a new television series centred on paranormal activity.
Ozzy, wife Sharon and son Jack have come together for The Osbournes Want to Believe, marking the first time the three have shared a screen since The Osbournes premiered on MTV in 2002. The new eight-episode series will premiere August 2 on the Travel Channel.
Each hour-long episode features Jack Osbourne showing his parents clips of "phenomena that might include Bigfoot, UFOs, poltergeists, creepy dolls and unexplained apparitions," leaving Ozzy and Sharon to give their reaction and critique. The family's COVID-19 pandemic isolation at home led to much of the series being shot inside their home.
"My parents have always lived on the edge, even when it comes to believing in the supernatural," Jack explained in a press release. "I'm convinced they just haven't seen enough evidence, so I'm making them watch the most undeniable footage caught on camera, including a few from my own personal experiences. My biggest challenge may be keeping their comments family-friendly."
A press release also promises "a copious amount of swearing," just like the MTV days. Jack and Ozzy have more recently shared the screen together for Ozzy & Jack's World Detour on the History Channel.
In May, Jack revealed that an Ozzy Osbourne biopic is currently in the works. Daughter Kelly, who will not be appearing in the new series, has urged followers to be cautious about coronavirus in the event of it compounding Ozzy's persistent health issues.
Earlier this year, Ozzy released album Ordinary Man and didn't wait long to tease a follow-up.
