CBS Confirms Season 9 of Two and a Half Men, Ashton Kutcher Signing

by at . Comments

It's official. Two and a Half Men will be back and Charlie Sheen will not.

Ashton Kutcher signed a deal to replace Charlie Sheen next fall on Two and a Half Men, although the newcomer says Sheen cannot really be replaced.

In a press release today, Ashton said of 2 1/2 Men: "I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people."

Ashton

"I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers' homes."

Chuck Lorre, creator and executive producer of Two and a Half Men, says he's thrilled his "family" is intact and "If I could be any happier, it'd be illegal."

Kutcher will NOT be playing Charlie Harper (that would make for some downright ridiculous Two and a Half Men quotes), but rather a new character.

It's unclear how he'll be brought on, but Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will be coming back for a ninth season, which CBS confirmed is in the works.

What do you think? Will you watch the show with Ashton as the lead?

just watched two and a half men and will never watch it again. i never even smiled once, and with charlie i laughed out load and watching the same old reruns i still manage a smile with charlie, i think charlie made a mistake but who in this life hasn't. he deserves a break and get him back on the show. i could write his return, please get charlie back.

i am from romania, and i belive this might be the end of this show. the ideea of 2,5 men dosen't exist without charlie, the bound between the two brothers and Jake ends. Ashton , i belive, is a great actor, and i wish him good luck.I hope to be successful this season.

Hard one for me I must say as I love ashton I think he is funny I loved that 70's show I love punked love what happens in vegas and his other films but I just think charlie sheen is two and a half men and it will never be the same without him! It may be funny and watchable but it won't be two and a half men :(

Ashton kutcher is an absolute ASSHOLE. After he came to Australia and dissed us, it showed his true character. Piss off you horrible actor. I have watched you in your movie 'dude wheres my car' and I was laughing to how shit it was; you and your acting. I hope you will be remembered for the downfall of the great two and a half men. No one can even fill the place of a different character in two and a half men on charlies behalf. The show wont last another 18 months.
