"Two and a Half Men" is yet to roll camera for the production of season 9, but some details of the plot are allegedly spilled. According to Deadline, the script which has been kept under wraps mentions that the Malibu beachfront house, where Charlie Sheen's Charlie Harper lived with his brother Alan and nephew Jake, is put up for sale.
It is additionally said that a number of real-life celebrities, including some from Chuck Lorre's previous or current series, will tour the house, possibly joined by newly added regular cast Ashton Kutcher. Meanwhile, all or most of Harper's ex-girlfriends will be featured in the new season opener which will air September 19 at 9 P.M.
The taping for a new episode of "Men" will take place this Friday, August 5 in front of live audience. To keep secrecy, some key scenes may be filmed separately with no audience and producers will reportedly ban press from the taping.
Regarding report that creator Lorre will kill off Sheen's character to prevent him from returning to the show, Deadline thinks all signs point in that direction. However, TVLine recently offered speculation that Harper is not dead in a grisly accident, but getting a facial reconstruction that gives him a younger look.
This plot would be the safest way to continue the show since it still can have the exact same premise and dynamics that made it TV's most-watched sitcom for years. The name of Kucther's character itself has not been officially announced which adds fuel to the speculation.
