Charlie Sheen Wants Out

Posted: 09:54 AM ET


Charlie Sheen wants out.

After seven seasons, CBS’s hit sitcom Two and a Half Men will be down one man after the April 9 taping, sources tell PEOPLE. The reason? “Charlie’s just done,” says a set source. “And he’s quietly telling his friends he’s not coming back.”

Although sources say the network hoped the star would sign a new contract for an eighth season, Sheen recently turned down the offer. “He wants to move on,” says a friend of the actor, whose contract is fulfilled after he tapes this season’s 22nd episode. “Leaving is 100 percent his idea.”

Sheen rep Stan Rosenfield would only say: “Charlie’s deal is only through this current season.”

This makes more news than him being arrested for threatening to kill his wife! WOW! Maybe he should've had extra marital affairs.....

Who in the world watches his show? College Frat Boys?
What’s the demographic that will miss him? And he ought to be thankful that Obama don’t come over and regulate the Hollywood million dollar salaries.

@ Joe G. (Illinois), Two and A Half Men has always had high viewer ratings, and is not just watched by college frat boys. I'm not suprised you once again cannot refrain from including "Obama" in practically any discussion - your obsession with it is disturbing.

I love to watch him on two and a half men, he is very funny and good looking. Sorry to hear he is stopping. I know he is having a lot of challenges in his life. I hope things work out for him and wish him the best.
