If you thought Oprah Winfrey was slowing down anytime soon you are sadly mistaken.

According to reports, the media mogul has signed a new partnership deal to bring an OWN programming block to the United Kingdom.

With the multi-year deal, which also includes longtime partner Discovery Networks International, original series such as “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” “Oprah’s Master Class” and “Super Soul Sunday” will be broadcast on TLC in the UK.

“This is the next phase in showcasing the content that is like no other, the kind that only Oprah and her team at OWN can deliver,” said  executive vice president and chief content officer Luis Silberwasser. “This is a real win for DNI, OWN, and most importantly, our viewers with the stars and celebrities that are featured across OWN programming. We are delighted to premiere this block in the UK on TLC at its launch.”

OWN president Erik Logan added that the partnership was made possible due to high international demand.

“We are seeing great demand for our series as we continue to build our worldwide audience. We’re thrilled to be able to continue the network’s momentum with this international expansion,” he said.

O is unstoppable.
