Charlie Sheen may be out looking for a new TV gig again. His “Anger Management” series has been canceled after FX decided not to renew the series for additional episodes. First reported by RadarOnline, the cancellation comes at the completion of the comedy series’ 100-episode run.
Sheen’s show was launched in 2012 under what is known in Hollywood as a “90-10” agreement. The deal is this: If the first 10 shows are successful, the network and production company would agree to making 90 more. While “Anger Management” did OK, the overall ratings since its hot launch have cooled off, as the novelty wore off of watching Sheen, post-“Two and a Half Men.”
However, Sheen is taking the high road and released a statement saying, “I am beyond proud of what we accomplished over the course of 100 episodes of ‘Anger Management.’ We created something uniquely special with some of the most talented individuals I have ever had the privilege to work with. My sincere thanks to all for their unwavering love and support. Here’s to the next chapter.”
“Anger Management” was based on the film of the same name that starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. The show’s 100th episode, and now series finale, will air Monday night.
