E! News reports that the hit CBS show was renewed for a tenth season on Saturday.
The Monday night comedy, which stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, pressed on after replacing Charlie Sheen before its ninth season. The shows creator, Chuck Lorre, fired Sheen after a series of incidents including Sheen publicly bashing the top-notch writer.
Sheen, who will star in the new series, Anger Management, has since bashed his onetime home, calling the show “completely adrift” and “full of bad writing.”
E! reports that since Kutcher replaced Sheen, Two and a Half Men ranked second in prime-time comedies. Saturday’s news comes nearly two weeks after Kutcher signed on for the tenth season for an estimated $725,000. Co-stars Cryer and Jones also signed on for the tenth season raking in $700,000 for Cryer and $300,000 for Jones.
At the time, Kutcher commented on playing millionaire Walden Schmidt, saying, “I've got the best job in show business, and I am ecstatic about that."
