The BBC has ordered a reboot of the MTV series The Osbournes, according to new reports.

BBC Documentaries head of commissioning Clare Sillery has revealed that the network has ordered a reboot of the popular reality series, capturing the famous family’s move back to the UK.

“20 years ago the Osbournes left Britain for a life in LA. Now they are coming ‘Home to Roost’, back to their family home, pretty much as they left it all those years ago,” the network head said in a statement obtained by Digital Spy.

“In this new series BBC viewers will be able to follow the family as they settle back into their new life in a Buckinghamshire village,” continued the statement. “It promises to be a funny, moving and honest insight into their new life back in the UK.”

The Osbournes was a pioneer in the reality TV space, airing for four seasons on MTV between 2002 and 2005. The original series took viewers behind-the-scenes of Black Sabbath lead singer Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon, and their kids Kelly and Jack. The famous couple shares another child together, Aimée, who infamously decided not to appear on the MTV series.

“For me, I had grown up around having a pretty well-known dad anyway and I always really valued my privacy within that family,” the oldest sibling explained in a 2020 interview.

“For me personally and for who I am as far as morally and also just to give myself a chance to actually develop into a human being as opposed to just being remembered for being a teenager,” she explained. “It didn’t really line up with what I saw my future as.”

She continued, “It definitely worked great for the rest of my family, but for me and who I am I just knew it was never something that I was going to be able to consider realistically.”

“Weirdly, I think I was more mature then than I am now,” she later joked. “I have a bit of a Benjamin Button in reverse or something. I get more ridiculous as I get older.”

According to previous reports, MTV had attempted to get an Osbournes reboot off the ground over the years, to no success.

No news yet on who will appear on the new show or where it will be broadcast, however. The BBC has a few options with both linear channels and streaming options like the BBC iPlayer.
