FX pulls the plug on Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management'

Tonight's "Anger Management" finale, it turns out, is the series finale. Charlie Sheen's post-"Two and a Half Men" project is all done, as cast and crew were informed late last week by FX and Lionsgate that the show would not be renewed. "I am beyond proud of what we accomplished over the course of 100 episodes," Sheen says in a statement. "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."


The network brass apparently informed the team Friday, ahead of tonight's100th episode debut, which certainly puts a damper on the celebrations. The series was kicked off in a unique manner, with Sheen orchestrating a deal with the network where he made 10 episodes and if they liked them, they had to order a minimum of 90 more, instantly triggering a syndication deal and resulting in an often draining production schedule for those involved. Up next for Sheen? Reprising his "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" character for a cameo on "The Goldbergs."
