FX announced today that Anger Management has been given an order for 90 new episodes. The pick-up was part of a deal struck with the network that stated if the series met a designated average ratings threshold over eight of its first 10 episodes, it would trigger the massive order.

Anger Management has gotten off to a strong start in its freshman run, becoming the highest-rated new comedy series on cable in 2012, with an average 4.53 million Total Viewers (2.5 million among adults 18-49). The series stars Charlie Sheen as an anger management therapist who has issues of his own.

Production on the newly ordered episodes is set to begin next month with an expected return in January 2013.
