Although Oprah's daily talk show went off the air this May, fans won't have to wait very long for the TV titan to bring her signature style back to the small screen as OWN announced today that Oprah's Next Chapter will premiere January 1, 2012.
"After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs," Oprah said in a statement. "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. It is so energizing to be out and about in the world exploring new people, new places and new ideas."
The show sees Oprah interviewing celebrities and real people outside the confines of a studio. The series premiere features a candid chat with Steven Tyler, while subsequent episodes will include a trip to Haiti with Sean Penn, a tour of Skywalker Ranch with George Lucas a slumber party at Paula Deen's house and much more.
"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.
