Tyson Fury ‘green lights’ second Netflix series despite claiming he ‘wanted out’
| Last updated
Boxing star Tyson Fury has reportedly given the green light for a second series of his Netflix show.
Earlier in the month, Fury, along with his family starred in the popular show ‘At Home With The Furys’.
The documentary series gave fans a rare insight into the Furys’ life away from the limelight and the boxing ring.
At Home With The Furys was a big hit as the first episode racked up 2.6 million viewers.
As a result of the huge success, it has been reported that the show could return with a second series.
According to The Sun, Netflix wanted to bring the cameras back into Fury’s life.
A source told the publication: “Tyson’s show was a runaway hit for Netflix and they’ve been keen to get him to agree a second.
“Tyson had some reservations but has finally said he’d be up for inviting the cameras back into his life. Paris is expecting their seventh child this month so it’ll be a while.”
However, this decision to renew the series could come as a surprise as Fury previously claimed he wanted to cancel the show.
Speaking to Capital XTRA Breakfast earlier in the month, Fury said: “I wanted out. I was like, couple of weeks in, I said: 'Is there any way [out]?'
“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’.”
Fury is set to return to the ring in October when he takes on former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
