Charlie Harper may rise from the dead on Two and a Half Men.
Charlie Sheen has reached out to the Two and a Half Men production team about ressurrecting his role as Charlie Harper. Sheen was imfamously fired from the show after he did a series of interviews attacking the series’ creator, Chuck Lorre, and the people who control CBS Network and Warner Bros. Sheen hopes to put the bad blood behind them, at least briefly, to reward long time fans of Two and a Half Men by bringing his character back to it.
Two and a Half Men approaches its final season next month; the series ran for 12 seasons (from 2003-2015). The show originally revolved around Alan (played by Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (played by Angus T. Jones) moving in with Alan’s playboy older brother, Charlie. After Sheen was fired from the series in 2011, the show rebranded itself by becoming a show about Alan and Waldon Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), a millionaire who buys Charlie’s old estate.

Sheen told TVGuide exclusively that he was interested in revising his role for the final season. He said that, “I’ve reached out to them and they’ve reached back,” Sheen stated. He continuned on to say, “We’re trying to figure out what makes the most sense. If they figure it out like I’ve presented it to them and they want to include me in some final send-off, I’m available and I’m showing up early. If not, it’s on them.” An insider told the magazine that no one at Two and a Half Men contacted Sheen, and that they may not take his request seriously. He has expressed interest before about reprising his Two and a Half Men role. TV Guide’s insider also doesn’t believe that Sheen will return as Charlie, but they didn’t rule out the possibility.
Last year, Sheen attempted to publicly make amends with Lorre by sending out a tweet directed at him, despite his lack of a Twitter presence.
