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?

Charlie Sheen WILL always be the BEST. No one else can replace him in 2.5 men. The new cast and season 9 is gonna suck without Charlie. I'm definitely not gonna watch it rather I would watch Seasons 1 - 7 again and again!
We miss you Charlie :(

I'm sad that Charlie was rejected, but he went down a bad road and so they had to do something, and Ashton is an amazing comedy actor and a very talented one, im sure he'll pull it off. I can't wait to see him in the first episode.
BTW, Justin is totally right. Just because Charlie did such an awesome job on the first 7 seasons (cause in the 8th one he kinda sucked) that doesn't mean Ashton won't to a good job, maybe even a better one. So people just relax and wait until you see him in action, and then start criticising

I believe that "two and a half men" ended with Charlie Sheen's withdrawal. It is also true that during the 8th season, Charlie was a wreck and that reflected somehow on the quality of the show. Thus, such a decision had to be make, but it also ended the show. I consider the 9th season as a new, different sitcom with Ashton Kutcher as the new main character and i am actually curious how it's going to work out, so i intend to watch it. And i will also watch Two and half men seasons 1 to 7 over and over again.
