Selma Blair is making a sudden exit from the Charlie Sheen TV comedy "Anger Management."

In a statement Tuesday, producer Lionsgate says the actress won't be returning to the FX comedy. The company says it wishes her "the very best" but has no further comment.

Blair's departure comes while the comedy is about halfway through completing its 90-episode order from FX.

The actress's publicist didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Sheen's manager, Mark Burg, declined comment, as did FX.

The show represents Sheen's TV series comeback after he was fired from CBS' hit comedy "Two and a Half Men" in 2011 after clashing with producers.

Sheen has an ownership stake in "Anger Management."

Blair played a therapist and colleague to Sheen's character on the show.
