Deteriorating and Disturbing Health Conditions Caused Terry Bradshaw to Back Down From His Highly Anticipated Project

Published 12/01/2022, 9:30 PM EST

Terry Bradshaw knows how to come out of a fight with a win. He did it with his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers when he won all those Super Bowls for them. And this time, Bradshaw has come out victorious against cancer. And not once, but twice. However, owing to his inconsistent health, his show, ‘The Bradshaw Bunch’, has sadly been called off for good.

According to TMZ, 4x Super Bowl Champion Terry Bradshaw’s family entertainment show ‘The Bradshaw Bunch’ has been officially cancelled after two seasons. The show was based on Terry’s own family and featured Bradshaw himself, along with his wife Tammy Bradshaw and their three daughters. However, the beloved show won’t be returning for its much-awaited third season because of a second major health risk for Terry.

Terry Bradshaw spoke recently to Fox about his battle with cancer. It all started during the airing of season 2 of The Bradshaw Bunch in November 2021. At that point, Bradshaw was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He beat that, only to be diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer called Merkel cell carcinoma in March of this year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers legend and former quarterback won four championships in a span of six years between 1974 and 1980. After the end of his Steelers dynasty, Terry joined the world of sports analysis and the Fox desk as Co-host of NFL Sunday. Terry has also been involved in the county music department and co-starred in a 2006 romantic comedy movie called ‘Failure to Launch’. However, The Bradshaw Bunch’s days have come to an end.

Terry didn’t share the news of his illness with the world and even hid it from his wife and family. “I didn’t talk about it because I didn’t want pity,” Bradshaw told NBC’s Today show. He shared it with this family when the breathlessness was getting too hard not to notice. However, Terry is now cancer-free after treatment at Yale University Medical Center and MD Anderson Cancer Center. And after recovering from this extremely stormy episode, Terry didn’t think he had it in him to carry on with the show.
