Housewives rejoice! Oprah Winfrey makes her return to television with the launch of her new series “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” Before her talk show went off the air, Oprah revealed she would be returning to TV with a show that would take her to different places outside of a studio.
Oprah said: “After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever – moving around the country and the world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too,” said Winfrey. “It is so energizing to be out and about in the world exploring new people, new places and new ideas.
“I sat at the dinner table with a Hasidic Jewish family and tried to explain to the children who have never seen a television what TV is…can you imagine? I fire-walked with Tony Robbins—never pictured myself doing that! I celebrated the power of God and community with Joel Osteen and I’m planning a trip with Deepak Chopra to India where I’ve never been,” Winfrey added.
Here’s a first look at Oprah Winfrey’s new series:
