MTV President Brian Graden says "all systems are go" for "The Osbournes," which chronicles the lives of the heavy metal legend, his feisty wife Sharon, and two of their teenage children -- daughter Kelly, and son Jack.
However, the network may still decide to postpone the show, possibly to January, an MTV spokesperson said. Details on the upcoming shows have not been released.
The season is expected to feature Sharon Osbourne's battle against cancer as she undergoes chemotherapy sessions. She was diagnosed with colorectal cancer July 1, after her husband urged her to see a doctor for a long overdue checkup. Two days later, she had surgery; one of two lymph nodes that were removed tested positive for cancerous cells, indicating the disease had spread.
The family also has taken in a teenage friend of the family, Robert Marcato, whose mother died of the same type of cancer afflicting Sharon.
Meanwhile, Kelly Osbourne is in the midst of launching her own musical career. Her debut album, "Shut Up!," is due Nov. 26 via Epic, according to her official Web site. The set will feature the title track, which will be released as the first radio single and supported by a video that was recently shot in Los Angeles, and will include her cover of Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach," which was released earlier this year as a single.
