Ashton Kutcher will be taking Charlie Sheen’s spot in the upcoming season of CBS’s Two and a Half Men, but for the loyal fans of the series, many question how Warner Brothers and CBS will address Charlie Sheen’s exit from the series after being the lead character on the show for nearly a decade. A source close to TMZ says that they will play on the end to last season’s show where Charlie’s character, Charlie Harper, and his girlfriend Rose were headed to an airport on route to Paris.
According to the website, Chuck Lorre, the executive producer and creator of the series, doesn’t want to make the other characters on the show “sacrificial lambs,” but a plane crash reportedly isn’t being ruled out. The series, and Lorre, are so determined to wipe Sheen off the face of the show that the banner on the WB lot featuring Sheen and his co-stars was taken down in place of a “generic logo” of the show, according to OK!. As of now, it isn’t revealed how Kutcher’s role in the series will be inserted, but that will be probably leaked in the future as episodes for the upcoming season are taped. The series is expected to return in late September.
