The Osbournes, the reality sitcom about former BLACK SABBATH frontman Ozzy Osbourne and his colorful family life, will return for a second season, Ozzy's wife/manager Sharon Osbourne said on Thursday.

During an appearance on NBC's Tonight Show, host Jay Leno asked Osbourne if there would be another season of the reality series based on the family life of her husband. Yes," she replied, smiling and throwing her hands in the air. She didn't offer further details.

A spokeswoman for MTV, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press late Thursday that a deal had not been reached.

The Osbournes is MTV's hottest series in the channel's 21-year-old history, drawing more than 6 million weekly viewers. It has pushed aside professional wrestling as cable TV's biggest show, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The program's popularity boosted the Osbournes' negotiating position regarding a second season. The family, reportedly concerned about tourists at their California home, may film part of a new season at their other home in England.
