Who doesn’t remember Two and a Half Men, the hit CBS sitcom that won our hearts a few years ago? The show starring Charlie Sheen (Charlie Harper), Jon Cryer (Jake) and Angus T. Jones (Jake) aired for 12 seasons. It followed the wealthy, care-free bachelor Charlie Harper, whose life changes when his uptight brother and troublesome son move in. His Malibu beach house becomes a home to three and Charlie’s freewheeling life gets tangled in a web of complications.
- It was witty, original and fans would love to see the cast together again
- Charlie Sheen wants a reboot of Two and a Half Men
- Fans would love to see Charlie Sheen return to the show he popularised
The show aired from 2003 to 2015, had high ratings and a respectable viewership. Created by the ‘King Of Sitcoms’, Chuck Lorre, the series was much-loved and deemed one of television’s best sitcoms ever. But it eventually courted controversy due to Sheen’s self-sabotaging behaviour and media interviews that tampered his contract with CBS.
We’re hoping all that is in the past and that the show-runner and network are considering a reboot soon. Several television shows are being revived for new seasons while others are working on reunion episodes to appease fans. If the network could reboot Two and a Half Men and cast Charlie Sheen again, fans would be unimaginably happy.
After five years, it’s about time CBS decides to reboot Two and a Half Men. Keep reading to find out why.
It was witty, original and fans would love to see the cast together again
The series was full of hilarious moments, but the chemistry between the characters is something fans miss even today. Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones were a great team and they easily slipped into their characters. Charlie Harper’s casanova lifestyle in a luxurious beach-house gets a reality check when his brother and nephew move in. The series follows each character’s conflicting lifestyle, as the fun-uncle and the efficient father take their turns to raise Jake.
Two and a Half Men had a catchy premise, had great comic moments and was pure escapist television. It featured remarkable writing and its snappy dialogues really distinguished it from the many other sitcoms, back then.
Unfortunately, it was only after eight seasons that Charlie Sheen decided to toss his popularity and contract out the window. His feud with creator Chuck Lorre led to the termination of Sheen’s contract with the network. Luckily for fans, Sheens exit didn’t entirely make the negative impact it was expected to have.
It paved the way for Ashton Kutcher’s character’s entry in the show as the internet billionaire Walden Schmidt. To say that Kutcher’s addition to the series was a breath of fresh air would be an understatement.
Charlie Sheen wants to reboot Two and a Half Men
Two and a Half Men, throughout its twelve seasons, was pure entertainment. The concept of a rich, fun-loving uncle and an efficient but broke father having to raise a kid intrigued viewers. After eight seasons, Charlie Sheen was fired from the show and replaced by Ashton Kutcher. His character on the show was killed off as the series continued to premiere on CBS for four more seasons.
But just three years after the series ended, Charlie Sheen wanted the network to reboot Two and a Half Men He pitched the idea and it seems as if the actor hopes to reprise his role as Charlie Harper again. It’s hard to imagine that his plea will be taken into consideration, especially with the dynamic between Sheen and Lorre.
Sheen had slammed Lorre in a live radio interview in 2011, where he called Lorre a “turd” and a “clown”. This was one of many incidents that drove the creator and network to terminate his contract.

The series recorded a boost in viewership after Ashton Kutcher joined the cast, but Charlie Sheen originally popularised the show. Before a string of strange media incidents, the show was doing just fine with Charlie as one of the leads. It was after all, he, who viewers first got acquainted with.
Even after Charlie’s dismissal, he was invited to appear in the series finale by the show’s producers. It’s no surprise that he didn’t agree to reprise his role in the finale.
The finale was a dig at the actor. The script was full of shrewd comments including jokes about drugs and prostitutes, marking his previous behaviour. If Lorre and Sheen could let bygones be bygones, maybe fans would finally get to see him as Harper again. But it doesn’t seem like a reboot is in the works, not until we hear from the network itself.
