Story by Jack Foley

CHARLIE Sheen has committed himself to another two seasons of top-rated US sitcom Two And A Half Men, it has been confirmed.

In a statement released on Monday (May 17), the 44-year-old said: “I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights.”

The announcement ends months of speculation surrounding the star’s plans and confirms that the sitcom will run for at least another two years – when its future had been in doubt.

Sheen had threatened to leave the show earlier this year amid reports that he was demanding up to $1m (£690,000) per episode and wanted to concentrate on his film career.

He also complained that the production demands of the show had become too great after seven years in the role of bachelor Charlie Harper, a bachelor whose brother and nephew move into his flat after a divorce.

Details of the new agreement have not been released.
