Just when you thought Charlie Sheen was out of the television sitcom world after his combative exit from ”Two and a Half Men,” the actor is slated to appear in a new series on FX.

Sheen will appear on the cable network’s new sitcom, “Anger Management,” according to a FX news release.

The show will premiere in summer 2012 and is loosely based on the 2003 movie by the same name, the release said.

“I have been fortunate to work with Charlie Sheen on six hit films,” said producer Joe Roth in the release. “Now to have Charlie, the number one comedy star on TV, doing ‘Anger Management,’ feels like a perfect fit.  And I could not be happier than being back at Fox with John Landgraf and Chuck Saftler.”

FX has ordered 10 episodes of the series.

Sheen’s new series comes as ratings for “Two and a Half Men” have slipped after its premiere with Ashton Kutcher – who replaced Sheen.
