After weeks of speculation and countless rumours on what is to come of the hit comedy Two and a Half Men, CBS has finally satisfied wondering fans. They announced today that Ashton Kutcher will be stepping in for the fired star Charlie Sheen come Season 9. The show’s creator Chuck Lorre released a statement saying, “We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family.” Ashton also made a statement of his own, “I can’t wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers’ homes. I can’t replace Charlie Sheen, but I’m going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!”

Production on the revamped show will begin this summer.
