Shooting Begins On 'THE OSBOURNES' Finale

Season two of "The Osbournes" ended on Tuesday (Feb. 11) without much of the frenzy and media madness that accompanied last season's finale.

MTV officials won't say what's in store for the third — and reportedly final — season. The first of its ten episodes began shooting in L.A. last month.

"I think the core of the show will stay the same," says "Osbournes" executive producer Greg Johnston. "I don't think we'll change what we've been doing.

"We were really happy with these last 10 [episodes] and [Tuesday night's episode] was a great way to end the season, with Sharon and Ozzy renewing their [wedding] vows," he said.

"We won't try to change anything for the upcoming season."

MTV has not yet set a date when the final season will begin.

"There's no time frame," he said. "I don't think there's been any kind of decision made on that yet."

Johnston said that it's unlikely we'll see anything connected with Sharon Osbourne's upcoming talk show, slated to debut in the fall.

"It was never part of our show to include stuff that goes on outside of the family, whether that be press attention or anything else," Johnston said. "We're trying to focus on what happens in their lives and their relationships in the house.

"Those things don't interest us that much," he said of Sharon's talk show. "Unless it's something that pertains to the entire family, that's the only way we would include it in the show."

"The Osbournes", which spawned E!'s "The Anna Nicole Show" and other reality-show knockoffs, experienced a ratings comedown from last season, when it averaged 5.3 million viewers. That number fell to about 4.5 million viewers this season (not including Tuesday night's season finale).
