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?

I believe that Sheen, was great in the first 6 maybe 7 seasons of two and a half men, but 8th season Sheen, was not in his prime. He looks tired in every episode, and his life problems rely effects his performing. And he is so naive in real life thinking that his career will keep growing after his rejection. He might die in the near future if he keeps pumping drugs and alcohol.... So yeah, it was a wise decision to reject him. And most of you are pretty stupid to believe that this decision wasn't carefully analyzed by the producers and the network. I know you Americans are a little dummy, but try to think, for before writing stupid remarks. I wish you bigger brains from Denmark. P.S Justin you are right

Ashton Kutcher is just an actor for sad movies with sad humor and sad viewers and he is certainly NOT skilled, talented, funny, good and evenso, cool enough to replace Charlie Sheen. If anything it's gonna be a 9th season of a sad brother (without a brother), an arse scratching nephew (without an uncle) and a lot of way too young girlfriend (which will have to be around the age of 10 to fit the bill), and a Malibu beach house that will always remember everyone to the missing one from the two and a half men.

Justin you piss off shit, go fog off. Two and a Half Men is succesfull cause of charlie sheen, and charlie sheen make the show what it is today, all 6 billion peaople watching the show will not watch two and a half men season 9, maybe for 5 or 10 mins, but i ASSURE you, they will say, it's crap and it's not the two and a half men anymore, it's stupid show.

i certainly wont be watching the next series, without charlie sheen it will be terrible, no one will ever replace charlie sheen, it doesnt matter how well loved or funny or how hard they try they wont hold anything on charlie sheen, he made this show what it i today and was definately the funniest person on the show. for me two and a half men is finished and the only ones ill be watching are the ones with sheen in them, its mad even thinkin about continuin the show without him, imaine only fools and horses with someone else replacin david jason and you have your answer, sheen is a legend.

hi, i'm from the other side of the world (eastern europe.romania) where this show har e real succes. Most of the people who are whatching this show said something like : "i realy do not se a reason for whatching this show without charlie". Here in europe we don't give a damn about LORRE but CHARLIE SHEEN realy means something, nobody knows who is LORRE ang we realy dont give a damn.

People, Y'all need to realize the Why's in the matter. You can't have a show like that with the stuff that Charlie's doin. He can't controll himself anymore. They already made him the best paid series star but the kid always wanted more. Of course its sad but it had to be done. Maybe Charlie made Two and a half Men what it is today but its also the other way around. Charlie became his role, and thats just weak. Am I the only person that can really see past the first 8 Seasons and hope for something new and maybe better? I get that alot of ppl are mad and stuff cuz of how it went down but if anyone of you were Chuck you would've done the same thing. Think about all the facts before running your mouth because of a TV show. If its over for you then don't watch it. But don't hate on somebody cuz they don't see Eye to Eye with someone. I can speak for myself and say that Two and a half men became what it was because of the whole cast and not one person. Everything just came together. Charlie was just the main role. I can't wait to see how Ashton did on his first episode.

YOU CAN'T TAKE CHARLIE SHEEN OFF!!! HE IS HILLARIOUS AND WITH OUT HIM LIKE MOST OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID YOU MAY AS WELL CANCEL TWO AND A HALF MEN. i AGREE CHUCK LORE SHOULD JUST OFFER CHARLIE SHEEN WHATEVER HE WANTS TO GET HIM BACK. NO ONE IS GOING TO WANT TO WATCH TWO AND A HALF MEN WITHOUT HIM!!! I AM SO DISAPPOINTED THEY ARE TAKING HIM OUT. ASHTON KUTCHER WILL DEFINATLY NOT BE ABLE TO FILL THE PART. CHUCK LORE JUST DESTROYED THE BEST SHOW EVER!!!! WHAT A DUMB A$$. I REALLY DON'T LIKE CHUCK ANYMORE. HE JUST RUINED IT FOR EVERYONE ALL BECAUSE HE CAN'T GET OVER HIMSELF!
