It has been confirmed that US sitcom, Two and a Half Men, is to end on the completion of the next season. The Chuck Lorre creation will therefore finish after twelve seasons.
CBS made the announcement earlier today at its upfront annual presentation. Nina Tassler, the network’s president, said: “He’s [Chuck Lorre] very psyched about this. He’s got some great ideas in store and some very big surprises.”
The comedy stars Jon Cryer and now Ashton Kutcher (who replaced Charlie Sheen after the feud Sheen had with Lorre). It began back in 2003 and has the title of the longest-running comedy on TV right now. Despite its longevity and casting problems, its success has remained and its eleventh season still managed to grab 9 million viewers.
Two and a Half Men‘s final season will be broadcast by the network on Thursdays at 9/8c, once Thursday Night Football has completed its current series.
