(LOS ANGELES) — FX has ordered an additional 90 episodes of Charlie Sheen’s FX comedy Anger Management, Variety reports.
The cable network’s original agreement with Anger Management producer Debmar-Mercury included a ratings threshold for the show’s initial 10-episode run that, if reached, would trigger the 90-episode order. That threshold has not been disclosed, but the series has averaged about 4.5 million viewers per episode.
TMZ.com reports Sheen stands to make more than $100 million from his work on the show, thanks to the episode order.
Anger Management, which represents Sheen’s TV comeback after he was fired from Two and a Half Men, premiered in June.
