Tyson Fury turned down millions rejecting two more seasons of new Netflix show
| Last updated
Nearly a week after its release, many millions have tuned into Netflix's At Home with the Furys - and fans are certainly loving it.
It also offers an unique insight into the Fury's life - tapping in with Tyson's wife Paris, brother Tommy and his partner, Molly-Mae Hague.
But the hit show very nearly wasn't a thing, as Tyson said he wanted to cancel the Netflix show during filming as he believed it was a 'mistake'.
Speaking on Capital XTRA Breakfast with Robert Bruce and Shayna Marie, The Gypsy King admitted to consulting lawyers during the filming process to find out whether he could break free from the contract he signed with Netflix.
"Tyson said no he didn't want to," Paris said on the breakfast show. "We got halfway through filming, and he wanted to cancel the whole show!"
While Paris pretty much explained the whole situation, Tyson added: "Yeah I wanted out, I was like, couple of weeks in I said 'Is there any way?', I'd be on the phone with my lawyers 'Is there any way I can get out of this?'
"I don't know what I've signed up for again. I never said I'd do it again, I've done it again, I've made a mistake."
So it is perhaps no surprise that more seasons of At Home with the Furys are not on the horizon, with the heavyweight champion - who suffers from various mental health disorders including bipolar and ADHD - apparently turning down millions for two more seasons of the Netflix show.
In fact, the current number one show on Netflix was meant to feature ten episodes, but that was later cut down to nine, according to an exclusive report by the Daily Mail.
In the same report, the paper claims that Tyson has turned down a lucrative deal for a second and third season of At Home with the Furys with Netflix.
A source told the Mail: "After retiring Tyson saw the Netflix show has a lucrative opportunity in place of the money he would have earned by taking on a fight.
"But the filming process was particularly stressful and coupled with the fact he's now an active boxer again after coming out of retirement, he decided to put a series two on hold for the foreseeable future.
"There is hope within the streaming giant that it could be reprised but for the short term it is not something Tyson is considering."
