Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are coming to Lanford. The Prince of Darkness and his wife will be on next week's episode of The Conners, titled Beards, Thrupples and Robots. The hard rockin' couple will be playing themselves and it will double as a reunion between Sara Gilbert and Sharon, who worked together for years on The Talk. In a picture from their cameo, we see Ozzy and Sharon seated at the Lunch Box looking pretty wholesome. There are no other details about their cameo at this time.
The Conners Beards, Thrupples and Robots episode finds Harris as the boss of Darlene after her mom, desperate for money, gets a job at Price Warehouse. Aunt Jackie decides to take her "thrupple" relationship with Ron and Janelle to the next level, while everyone makes fun of Ben's appearance after he shaves his beard in an attempt to appear more clean-cut to potential advertisers for the magazine. There's already a lot going on in the episode, so it will be interesting to see where Ozzy Osbourne fits into all of this with Sharon.
Metal legend Ozzy Osbourne recently released his latest solo album Ordinary Man and has since had to postpone his No More Tours 2 farewell tour due to health reasons. While on the mend, the iconic musician has found time to star in The Conners and start work on a follow up to Ordinary Man. Ozzy is trying to get as much work done as he can before he can't do it anymore, and for anyone that knows the man and his music, he has to keep being creative while bringing his fans joy.
The Osbournes are the latest in a long line of guest stars for The Conners Season 2. Dan Aykroyd, Cheryl Hines, Noel Fisher, Clark Gregg, and Jennifer Grey have previously appeared this season. Roseanne fans have been gravitating towards the spin-off series a lot more now, and now just because of the guest stars. The show seems to have found its own footing and voice, while being rooted in the familiar. In addition to The Conners, ABC has been bringing the metal cameo to the forefront. Ozzy will follow Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, who was just on an episode of The Goldbergs.
Tommy Lee and Ozzy Osbourne go way back, but that's a story for a different time. For now, Ozzy looks healthy, which should make fans happy to see. The Black Sabbath front man and solo star is scheduled to go to Switzerland in April to undergo medical treatment which will reportedly last between 6 and 8 weeks. From there, he'll recover while trying to finish a new album before hitting the road again in the fall. The Conners ABC Instagram was the first to announce that the Osbournes coming to Lanford. The episode airs Tuesday, March 17th at 8 pm on ABC.
