Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management’ Gets A 90-Episode Renewal

Anger Management, Charlie Sheen

FX has picked up Charlie Sheen’s comedy series “Anger Management” for a 90-episode renewal. Winning!

Sheen stars as Charlie, a formal professional baseball player, whose rage issues ended his career and led him to become a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management.

As previously reported Martin Sheen, who plays Charlie’s dad on screen will be bumped up to a series regular on ‘Anger Management.’

Chuck Saftler, executive vp of FX said, “Bruce Helford has created a sitcom that works extremely well in our pre-10 p.m. programming lineup. Charlie Sheen and the entire cast did an amazing job in the first ten episodes, which were produced in a very tight window. I have no doubt that the producers and cast will be able to pull off the Herculean task of producing 90 episodes over the next two years.”

The second season production starts Sept. 24.

FX Renews ‘Louie,’ Orders More Russell Brand, & Martin Sheen to Join ‘Anger Management’

Emmy nominated Best Writing comedy series, “Louie” has been renewed for a fourth season.

FX’s entertainment president, John Landgraf announced the news earlier today at the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills. Last Thursday, the comedy series was nominated for three Emmys: best writing, best director and lead actor in a comedy series, Landgraf said at TCA,  “we were obviously disappointed when show was not nominated for best comedy series.”

The series was renewed for a fourth season of 13 episodes.

FX’s press tour highlights…

Russell Brand’s “Brand X’ received an order of seven more episodes that will air this fall, but the show will undergo some creative changes.

Although “Wilfred” has not been renewed, Landgraf told critics he expects the comedy to be around for “many years.”

Landgraf also expects “Justified” to remain on the network for “at least six seasons.”

Martin Sheen is set to appear on “Anger Management’ season finale as Charlie Goodson’s dad. The actor will be bumped up to a series regular if the series gets an order of 90 episodes. However, the decision won’t be made until the first season has been aired. But the renewal seems “very likely.”

Landgraf informed reporters at the TCA press tour, “What the entry of Martin Sheen’s character will do is it will give an extra dimension to the show and make it a multi-generational family show. The show will still deal with his relationship with his patients and the women in his life, but will also [expand to focus on his family].”
