Charlie Sheen's Anger Management is reportedly set for a second season, even though the show will not premiere in the US for more than two weeks.
The team behind the FX series, which marks Charlie's return to TV after being fired from Two and a Half Men last year, have been allowed to start work again on July 9 - just 11 days after its pilot episode airs.
An official decision on whether or not Anger Management is extended beyond its first 10 episodes cannot be made until several weeks into July, as the show has to reach an undisclosed ratings threshold in order to receive an additional 90-episode order as part of a unique distribution model.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX is already confident Anger Management will be a hit as advertisement slots for the first four episodes have sold out weeks in advance.
Meanwhile, production company Lionsgate is set to garner a collective $1m per episode through international sales of Anger Management, which includes a 2014 syndication deal with Canada, Latin America, Germany, Scandinavia and Australia valued higher than similar agreements for Seinfeld and Two and a Half Men itself.
