Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" has managed a major renewal.
The FX comedy starring the fired lead of "Two and A Half Men" has received a 90-episode order from the cable network. The order came as part of the original deal for the comedy to generate a designated viewership level over the airing of eight of its first 10 episodes.
Said Chuck Saftler, executive vice president of FX Networks: "We set a very high ratings bar that included some additional hurdles for 'Anger Management' to ear its back-90 order and exceeded those metrics. [Executive producer] Bruce Helford has created a sitcom that works extremely well in our pre-10 p.m. programming lineup."
Saftler added, "Charlie Sheen and the entire cast did an amazing job in the first 10 episodes, which were produced in a very tight window. I have no doubt the producers and cast will be able to pull off the Hurculean task of producing 90 episodes over the next two years."
