Report: Ozzy + Jack Osbourne’s Television Series Moving to A&E for Second Season
Over the summer last year, Ozzy and Jack's World Detour, the show featuring father and son duo Ozzy and Jack Osbourne, made its debut on the History Channel. Talks about a second season had surfaced and the show has now reportedly been renewed for another round along with a move to the A&E channel according to Deadline.
The report claims that the unscripted Ozzy and Jack's World Detour will enjoy a 10-episode second season and that the channel switch was made as A&E is putting a further emphasis on unscripted reality shows while the History Channel's focus is now on scripted content.
Over the course of the first season, the Prince of Darkness and his son Jack (who quickly became a household name when The Osbournes reality show ran on television), visited a number of places together, digging into the history behind them all. The list of stops included Mt. Rushmore, Stonehenge, the Alamo, Roswell, New Mexico, the Jamestown Settlement, Memphis’ Sun Studios, a missile silo, a private museum of working artillery tanks and a venture to Cuba.
It’s kind of like a father-son deal. He comes to us and he goes ‘Dad…’ and I go, ‘Don’t say anything. ‘Yes,’ the answer is. I’ll do anything. I adore him," Ozzy told Billboard before the first season aired and when Black Sabbath were in the midst of their farewell run. "When I’m on some downtime and he asks me something, I’m ‘Sure, Jack, no problem — and then it lands right smack bang in the middle of when I’m doing a tour!”
