Bradshaw at the time did not get into specifics about his health, as in October he revealed he had been battling bladder and skin cancer.
Insiders told the outlet that the family and the network agreed to cease production of the reality show, which was never officially canceled.
The series, based out of the family’s ranch in Thackerville, Oklahoma, has run a total of 23 episodes on E!, with 10 in its first season in 2020 and 13 in its second season in 2021.
The Fox NFL Sunday co-host and football favorite concerned fans during an appearance on the show in September and subsequently revealed he has endured bladder and skin cancer.
Terry Bradshaw has shared he has been diagnosed with cancer twice over the last year
‘Last week on this show, I ran out of breath, and Howie (Long) helped me up, and a lot of people are asking what’s wrong with me, what’s happened to me physically,’ Bradshaw said on an NFL pregame show last month. ‘I just want to address it and let you know what has happened in my life. In November, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer.
He continued: ‘I went to the Yale University Medical Center – surgery, treatment. As of today, I am bladder-cancer free. That’s the good news. Then in March, feeling good. I had a bad neck. I get an MRI. Now we find a tumor in my left neck.
‘And it’s a Merkel cell tumor, which is a rare form of skin cancer. So I had that surgery done at M.D. Anderson in Houston.’
Bradshaw played 14 seasons for the Steelers and is a four-time Super Bowl Champion, a two-time Super Bowl MVP and one-time regular season MVP.
‘Folks, I may not look like my old self, but I feel like my old self. I’m cancer-free, I’m feeling great,’ he said. ‘And over time, I’m going to be back to where I normally am.’
Bradshaw has also starred in a reality show since retirement, titled The Terry Bradshaw Show, with wife Tammy (L) & daughters, Rachel (C), and Erin (R) showcasing their family life
Former New York Giant and fellow Hall of Famer Michael Strahan had kind words for Bradshaw: ‘You are the ultimate teammate. We love you.
‘We’re just so happy that you’re here and we’re happy that you’re cancer-free and I think you’re going to give hope to a lot of people out there who are going through something similar.’
In typical Fox NFL Sunday fashion, the compassionate, loving tone didn’t last long before Strahan injected some humor at the expense of the former Steeler.

‘I’m also just curious why it took this for people to ask what’s wrong with you after all these years?’
Bradshaw and his colleagues erupted in laughter before host, Curt Menefee added: ‘There’s some of us that have been asking it for several years!’
The 74-year-old is married to his wife, Tammy, and has two daughters, Rachel and Erin, and a step-daughter, Lacey.
