Anger Management has ended and Charlie Sheen has spoken about his experience with the show. The episode that served as the series finale aired Monday night. That episode was the show’s 100th, as well as the last for the series as a whole.
As news spread of Anger Management ending, Sheen spoke to Radar Online. He says he is proud of what they accomplished throughout the 100 episodes of the show, and he feels they created something uniquely special. Charlie adds that the show included some of the most talented individuals he’s ever worked with, and he offered his sincere thanks to everybody who supported the series.
As many will remember, Sheen’s new show with FX came shortly after his explosive exit from Two and a Half Men. FX and Lionsgate decided to give Charlie a new vehicle in Anger Management. As Gossip Cop notes, the new show came was under a deal that ensured they would try 10 episodes and order another 90 if the initial Anger Management run was successful.
The show started off with great ratings — 5.5 million viewers for the premiere — and the network moved ahead with the 90 additional episodes. However, the show’s ratings dropped significantly after the initial curiosity waned, it seemed. However, hitting that 100-episode mark does ensure that show becomes available for syndication, should a network want it.
What comes next for Charlie Sheen? There had been rumors that he might return to Two and a Half Men, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. However, he will be reprising his character from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs.
Many expected antics from Sheen on the new show, given all that transpired toward the end of his Two and a Half Men run. Indeed, there was some other drama during the run of Anger Management. Selma Blair was fired last year amid rumors of a feud with Sheen. There were also rumors that Sheen had started showing up late for filming, or missing work entirely, earlier this year. However, his rep denied those allegations.
The show was based off of a film of the same name that starred Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson. As some viewers have pointed out, though, Sheen’s character seemed to be, at times, just a thinly veiled recreation of Charlie himself and his Two and a Half Men character. Obviously, many tuned in to see the show start, but few stuck around as it continued.
With Anger Management ending Sheen will certainly be looking for new projects and long-time fans will be anxious to see where he pops up next.
