The royal family of darkness is coming back to television. VH1 has announced it's reviving The Osbournes nearly 10 years after the reality show stopped running on MTV. The move also comes just a few days after Sharon Osbourne said the family would return for "six or eight episodes."

Part of the Osbourne's motivation for bringing back the show is to portray Ozzy as sober for once. In a 2009 interview with the BBC the Osbourne patriarch confirmed he was stoned during every episode, which is why he never watched the show. Sharon said of her husband:

"He looked back on his life and he said, 'I wish we could have done The Osbournes now where I'm clean and sober.' So much to talk about ... Ozzy is coming up with his last tour with Black Sabbath."

It'll be good to see Ozzy less fucked up all the time—maybe we'll be able to understand him now—but there's one vice we hope him and his family don't cut back on: the gratuitous swearing. The show just wouldn't be the same without every other word bleeped out.
