Prepare for a lot more Charlie Sheen in your lives, America.
FX has ordered 90 additional episodes of Anger Management, per the original, unusual arrangement that guaranteed if certain “thresholds” were met ratings-wise, the sitcom would automatically be rewarded with an enormous follow-up.
On Season 2, which will debut some time in 2013, Martin Sheen will join the cast as his son's fictional father. The veteran actor has already appeared on one episode in that role.
Said Chuck Saftler, Executive Vice President of FX Networks, in a statement:
“We set a very high ratings bar that included some additional hurdles for Anger Management to earn its back-90 order and the series met and exceed those metrics. 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.”
