Ozzy Osbourne: VH1 scrap plans to bring The Osbournes back to TV

VH1 have scrapped plans to bring The Osbournes series back to TV.

"We are no longer talking to the Osbournes about a series; that's not going to happen," Susan Levison, exec vp original programming and production at VH1, tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We wish we could have worked it out, but it just didn't come together for us. The family has been absolutely lovely and we wish them the best. We'd love to figure out a way to work with them at some point in the future."

The change of plans follows a November announcement by Ozzy Osbourne’s wife and manager, Sharon, that the show was returning to TV.

"Ozzy has decided that he wants to do another few episodes, not a whole season, about eight episodes, of 'The Osbournes',” Sharon revealed on the UK show “Loose Women.” "He said that for the whole three years that we did it he was drunk the whole time. But he would like to do one where he's completely sober, as he is now."

The Osbournes originally aired on MTV from 2002 to 2005, becoming the highest rated original program in MTV's history.
