On OWN's original series, "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" executive producers Jill Van Lokeren and Julie Simpson track down past "Oprah Show" guests, celebrities and newsmakers to take viewers on a walk down memory lane.
On Sunday, Nov. 3, the show returns for a new season with singer Michael Bolton, "Jon & Kate Plus 8" reality star Jon Gosselin, Soleil Moon Frye of "Punky Brewster" fame and "Wonder Woman" Lynda Carter. The show's producers joined HuffPost Live host Nancy Redd to share moments from the upcoming episode and discuss how they decide who to revisit.
Along with pulling ideas from "The Oprah Show" vault, the producers say they get many suggestions from viewers who tweet to #WhereAreTheyNow. "We have these huge brainstorming sessions once a week, and we all just get around a big table and everybody throw out ideas, and it's really fun," Simpson says. "It just runs the gamut -- the lists are massive."
The show has featured everyone from Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady on "The Brady Bunch"), who left the entertainment industry to make concrete countertops for a living, to Sara Kohl, an alcoholic mom who finally hit rock bottom.
Who else would the producers love to book?
"I personally would love to know what is happening with Kristy McNichol," Van Lokeren says.
"I would die if we could get Axl Rose on the show," Simpson adds. "I'd love to have Michael Flatley, 'Lord of the Dance,' on the show, and Steve Perry from Journey."
Watch the full video above for a sneak peek of the new season and watch more behind-the-scenes moments with the producers every Monday at 11 a.m. ET on HuffPost Live.
