Chuck Lorre Developing TWO AND A HALF MEN Relaunch Without Charlie Sheen

Though I’m essentially mystified by anyone who actually misses the comedy series, fans of Two and a Half Men may be interested to know that the canceled sitcom may actually be reborn without Charlie Sheen. THR is reporting that series creator Chuck Lorre has definitely come up with an idea to reboot the sitcom and take it in a creative direction that would not bring the fired actor back to the series. Apparently Lorre has met with some close associates as well as series star Jon Cryer who will have a significant role in the series along with a new unknown character. Would this really be a Two and a Half Men relaunch or just a spin-off?

Meanwhile Sheen is still trying to get back on the show by clearing the air with cast members and winning their support. But for Now Lorre just doesn’t want to work with Sheen again, and even executives at Warner Bros. are saying that Sheen won’t be allowed back. However, apparently there’s still rumblings that the original Two and a Half Men could return for a ninth season (really, it’s been that long?) with another actor replacing Sheen. I’m sorry, but I think we’re just going to have to take Old Yeller out behind the barn and shoot him in the head. This is getting out of hand, and I can’t believe a sitcom like this needs to be resurrected. I just don’t think it’s worth it.
