Netflix’s At Home With the Furys has garnered millions of viewers and widespread fan appreciation within a week of release. The series made its debut on the streaming platform recently and revolves around the life of professional fighter Tyson Fury as he contemplates retirement once again. It provides a unique perspective into the lives of the Fury family, featuring Tyson’s wife, Paris, his brother, Tommy, and Tommy’s partner, Molly-Mae Hague.
Tyson Fury Disliked Making a Reality Show
Interestingly, the show almost didn’t come to fruition, as Tyson Fury contemplated canceling it during filming, believing it to be a mistake. During an interview, The Gypsy King disclosed that he even sought legal advice to determine if he could terminate the Netflix contract he had signed. Paris, Tyson’s wife, also shared a story, explaining that they went halfway through filming when the fighter wanted to cancel the whole show.
Tyson elaborated on his initial hesitation, saying that he wanted out. A couple of weeks in, he said, he was really looking for a way out of it. Apparently, he didn’t know what he’d signed up for and had made a mistake. It’s unsurprising that future seasons of At Home With the Furys are not currently in the pipeline.
No Hope for a Return
Reportedly, Tyson has declined a substantial offer for a second and third season of the Netflix show. Originally planned as a 10-episode series, it was later reduced to nine episodes. It seems that after retiring, Tyson saw the Netflix show as a lucrative opportunity instead of the money he would have earned from a fight.
Apparently, the filming process was too stressful for Tyson Fury and didn’t go well, coupled with his return to active boxing after coming out of retirement. So, Fury decided to put a hold on a second season for the foreseeable future.
