Television could soon lose its Sheen.

Charlie Sheen might retire after his show "Anger Management" has run its course, he said in an interview with The New York Times.

“When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this [Anger Management] ends, I’m done. This is my swan song," he told the Times.

"There’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe," he said. "At some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space." 

Sheen became the star of FX's "Anger Management" after he was fired from his popular CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" last year, following a very public meltdown and spat with its director.

"Anger Management" casts him as an unconventional therapist. FX has ordered ten episodes with an option to renew for 90 more to be produced in the next two years if the first ten prove a success.
