'Ozzy & Jack's World Detour' Renewed For Season 2; Moving From HISTORY Channel To A&E

According to Deadline, "Ozzy & Jack's World Detour" has been picked up for a ten-episode second season. The unscripted series, from T-Group Productions, will be moving from History, where it aired its first season, to its A+E Networks sibling A&E.

The first season of the reality show aired last summer and featured Ozzy Osbourne and his son Jack traveling the world together, exploring the history behind some of the planet's most storied sites, while checking out some lesser-known locations along the way. The program saw the self-proclaimed history nerds — who apparently waited years to take this trip — visit locales like Mount Rushmore, Stonehenge, the Alamo, Roswell, the Jamestown Settlement and Sun Studios. They also stopped at places like a missile silo, England's famed Bletchley Park and a private museum of working artillery tanks.

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.
