The Oprah Winfrey Show Reaching It’s 25th and Final Season

The 25th and final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show will start September 13 and many are wondering what Oprah has in store.

To start, Oprah is looking for everyone that was in the audience of her very first show that took place September 8, 1986. This proves to be a difficult task, considering their record keeping was not as good then as it is now.

“Those were the days when I would go out on the street and ask people to come in: ‘Come in! It’s air-conditioned,’” Oprah told TV Guide.

Images from the first telecast have been posted on the Oprah website in hopes of finding those nameless faces.

In addition, Oprah will be taking a trip down memory lane by revisiting Forsyth County in Georgia and Williamson in West Virginia this season. In 1987 Oprah traveled to Forsyth which was a town that allowed no black people. Later that same year, Oprah traveled to Williamson, where a young man who had AIDS was denied access to a grocery store in town.

Viewers can also expect some celebrity guests, but solely for self-promoting purposes.

“We’re saying to all of our celebrity friends, this is not the year you can come on and just promote your book or promote your song,” Oprah says. “You have to create moments. So, the team is looking at ways of pairing different celebrities to create unexpected moments.”

Last, we can probably expect plenty of flashbacks from the last 25 years.
