Likely buoyed by strong ratings from recent celeb interviews, Oprah Winfrey is continuing along that path.

Her Rihanna interview was OWN's second highest ratings broadcast in the network's short history; she's already bagged Olympic medal winner and America's new sweetheart, Gabby Douglas for the next episode of her Next Chapter series; and now, keeping the momentum going, it has been announced that Jennifer Hudson will sit with Oprah for a one-on-one, in Hudson's Chicago home. 

Per the press release, the conversation with J-Hud will air on the September 9th episode of Next Chapter.

What can we expect? We don't know yet, but I expect there'll be talk about her family, career, and weight-loss to start. the OWN press release does state: 

Oprah sits down with Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy-winning actress-singer Jennifer Hudson for an intimate conversation at her home in Chicago.

The interview follows the conviction of William Balfour, who was charged with murdering members of Hudson's family in 2008.

Up next for Hudson is a role in the upcoming second season of NBC's Smash.
