Anger Management Picked Up for 90 More Episodes by FX

Get used to it, people: Anger Management is going to be around for a long while. The comedy series, which premiered on FX this summer, has been renewed for a further 90 episodes by the network, as part of the deal the network signed to get the series. 

The sitcom, which stars Charlie Sheen as a therapist with anger issues of his own, was a success with audiences, despite critical concerns that the series didn't fit in well with FX's other, edgier comedy programs such as Archer, Louie, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Anger Management managed to meet the "very high ratings bar that included some additional hurdles," the network set, said FX executive Chuck Saftler, meaning that it was automatically picked up for 90 more episodes, bringing the total count to 100. 

If the show continues doing ten episodes a season, this could mean that Anger Management will be around until 2021.

Anger Management premiered back in June to strong numbers (5.47 million), though ratings had dropped to 2.42 million by the fourth episode. The season finale clocked in at 1.98 million, still outperforming all of FX's other comedies by at least half a million viewers. 

Anger Management stars Charlie Sheen, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith, and Daniela Bobadilla. Sheen's father, Martin Sheen, appeared in the show's first season as Charlie's father, and will continue to recur throughout the rest of the show's run. 

What do you think about the news? Are you excited for more Anger Management, or do you just wish that Charlie Sheen would go away? 

The second season of Anger Management will presumably air next summer on FX.

Quoting the network "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".

So it's hardly going to be 10 episodes a season.
