Did you think ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 12 was the end? Escaping his ex-girlfriends’ wrath and a run over by a train, could the infamous Charlie Harper be finally killed by a falling piano? If your answer is a YES, then here’s five reasons why we think ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13 is definitely happening and, that too, with Charlie Harper alive and kicking in it.
‘Two and a Half Men’ is the story of two polar opposite brothers Alan Harper and Charlie Harper who end up living together in Charlie’s Malibu beach house, along with Alan’s 10-year-old son Jake, after Alan gets a divorce from his wife. One of the most successful sitcoms of the early 2000s, ‘Two and a Half Men’ was created by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn.
- Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre bury the hatchet for ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13?
- Without Angus T. Jones, ‘Two and a Half Men’ reboot to be called ‘Three Men’?
- Jon Cryer not supportive of ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13 revival

Charlie Sheen more than eager for a ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13
Guess what, after the public showdown between producers and Charlie Sheen in 2011, it is not Lorre who wants a reboot. But Sheen is more than eager for one. In fact, he also has a storyline in mind that “people will talk about for a really long time”.
Dynamic duo Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer’s unique chemistry made the show an instant hit on CBS. So much so, that Sheen went on to earn more than $1.8 million per episode. Nine years later, Sheen publicly expressed his wish to bid the show a proper farewell with a new season. He thinks he owes it to the show, Lorre, and Cryer and, most importantly, to his fans to present an ending as memorable as his character.
Will Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer reunite for the final season 13? If so, what about Ashton Kutcher? How is Charlie Harper supposed to survive a brutal piano crash? The answer to these questions is yet to be found.
Charlie Sheen opens up about battling addiction and HIV
Successful sobriety for Sheen
This 10 December, Charlie Sheen will celebrate three years of sobriety. During an interview on British talk show ‘Loose Women’, Sheen opened up about his battle with drug addiction and alcoholism, precisely what got him fired from the sets of ‘Two and a Half Men’.
Struggling with two divorces and four children during the run of ‘Two and a Half Men’, Sheen’s meltdown became the talk of the town. As of today, Sheen feels like a completely different person, with a more positive outlook towards life and work. He is keeping things low-profile. He also has a strict policy of not inviting more than five people at home in order to keep a check on his urge to drink.
Embracing his new life, Sheen wants the ‘Two and a Half Men’ reboot to last not more than two seasons – just enough to tie up the loose ends and pay a final tribute.
Roberta just dropped a hint
‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 12 wrapped up with the housekeeper Roberta dropping a major hint. She tells Alan,
“I believe if you move out and Charlie stays here with Walden, we can keep this going for another five years”.
So will ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13 star Ashton Kutcher and Charlie Sheen? Will Jon Cryer’s Alan be out of the picture? When Cryer was asked about his thoughts on working with Sheen again, he said on ‘The Meredith Vieira Show’,
“He’d have to decide to be that good guy again. Good luck man”.
Post the firing fiasco, there was no stopping for Sheen. In 2012, Sheen went on to publicly shame Kutcher’s on-screen performance and told “TMZ”,
“I’m tired of lying … I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck … I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck”.
That’s not all. Sheen got involved in another Twitter feud with Kutcher. The confusing banter and public row escalated to the point where Kutcher told Sheen to “shut the fuck up” on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ in 2014. Six years have gone by since then, but has the heat cooled off between the two actors? We are yet to find out.
A “winning” deal for all
Charlie Sheen getting fired didn’t sit well with the ‘Two and a Half Men’ fans. Although the episode in which Sheen’s character Charlie Harper was awkwardly killed off got a very high rating, with more than 28 million viewers tuned in, the ratings plummeted steadily in his absence.
Season 11 managed to garner a viewership of merely 8-10 million viewers. Even the show’s IMDb ratings which once touched 9 in Sheen’s presence, almost dropped to 5 in his absence. The reason was clear. Kutcher wasn’t able to fill in the shoes of someone as memorable as Charlie Sheen.
Charlie Sheen’s charm is unmatched
When producer Chuck Lorre was given the colossal task of finding Charlie Sheen’s replacement, he kept scratching his head. It wasn’t an easy decision to make.
“We thought we were done. The decadent character with elegance and charm like Charlie is a very rare quality. Like Dean Martin, he can be a flamboyant, drunk womaniser, but not be offensive. It’s a hard thing to do”
Admitted Lorre on ‘Emmy TV Legends’.
Clearly, Sheen’s on-screen suave and charisma are unmatched and irreplaceable. Although ‘Two and a Half Men’ continued for four more years (2011-2015), the show wasn’t the same without the legendary Charlie Sheen. So much so, that even Ashton Kutcher openly accepted,
“I can’t replace Charlie Sheen but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!”
‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13 will only make perfect sense if Charlie Sheen is brought back, instead of his body double from the back. But will ‘Two and a Half Men’ Season 13 finally happen? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
