CBS cancels 'Two and a Half Men' after coming 12th season

CBS cancels ‘Two and a Half Men’ after coming 12th season


About eight seasons too late, CBS announced today the decision to cancel Two and a Half Men. Weep, laugh, do whatever you have to—just know that the show’s coming 12th season will be its last.

CBS made the announcement early this morning alongside the presentation of the network’s 2014-15 schedule. Two and a Half Men nabbed a 9 p.m. Thursday spot, but that won’t save the show from a “season-long event” (read: show-ending plot device.). As per the announcement:

"Chuck Lorre is creating a season-long event. We did very well last year with announcing final season of How I Met You Mother here, too. Chuck is very psyched about this; he's got some great ideas and very big surprises," CBS' Nina Tassler announced Wednesday during the network's pre-upfront press breakfast in New York. "We know fans and audiences respond to that and that should really give us a nice boost when we launch our new comedy." The executive also declined comment on whether one of those surprises could be the return of Charlie Sheen to the series.

No word yet on an episode count or replacement, but it’s rumored that the Matthew Perry Odd Couple reboot might move in. Still, though, even without Men on the roster after this coming season, creator Chuck Lorre still has three other shows airing on the network, including The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly. And, besides, there’s always syndication.

That way, Two and a Half Men will never leave us. Like it or not.
