A&E Network hits the road with rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, and his adventure-loving son, Jack, as they travel across America on the road trip of a lifetime in season two of “Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour”. Ten one-hour episodes will chronicle the cross-country journey beginning Wednesday, November 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
“I am so excited to be back for a second season because it means my dad didn’t kill me or cause too much destruction last season,” said executive producer Jack Osbourne. “But you never know what will happen this time around!”
“We are grateful to Ozzy and Jack for allowing us into their lives for an unfiltered look at their relationship while on this exciting journey together,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, executive vice president and head of programming, A&E Network. “Beyond the highly entertaining road trip adventure, the series’ focus on the deep bond between a father and his son offers viewers the personal connection they look for in our programming.”
Growing up the son of a music legend, Jack missed his father who was often away from home on tour. Now they are making up for lost time with the ultimate father-and-son bonding experience, an extreme road trip in a vintage 1973 GMC camper — the same model that Ozzy‘s band, BLACK SABBATH, used when they first began touring in America. This season, Ozzy and Jack travel thousands of miles across the country from Florida to Alaska and experience everything from unique local attractions to quintessential American pastimes. Whether they are deep sea fishing in Key West, experiencing a NASCAR race in Texas, camping with Jack‘s daughter in Sedona, dogsledding in Alaska, or traveling with Sharon and the family to Hawaii, Ozzy and Jack approach every adventure with humor, heart, and rock n’ roll spirit.
Ozzy admitted a while back that doing the show has helped fill some gaps in his own knowledge of history. “Anything past World War II, I’m clueless,” he told The Pulse Of Radio. “I’m kind of up on World War II ’cause I was born a couple of years after. So I know quite a lot about World War II and Hitler and the Nazis and all that. But anything from before or after I don’t know anything about. So we’re going to Mount Rushmore, we’re going to the abandoned silos where you guys, America used to have their Minutemen missiles and all that. It’s quite educational for me, actually.”
Ozzy had not starred in a regularly scheduled TV series since the MTV reality show “The Osbournes” ended a four-season run in 2005. A variety show called “Osbournes Reloaded” ended after one episode on Fox in 2009.
