Charlie Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’ finale?.

Chuck Lorre won’t clear up the mystery about whether Charlie Sheen’s character will return from the dead for next month’s Two and a Half Men series finale, but he’s throwing a lot of love Sheen’s way.The sitcom comes to an end after 12 seasons in February, and the former Anger Management actor starred in the first eight before his firing in 2011 following a falling out with the boss. However, Chuck has now extended an olive branch of sorts to the star, explaining it wouldn’t be right to ignore the impact he had on the popular show and the success it enjoyed.

Although Lorre was coy about the possibility while talking to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, he did pay tribute to Sheen who helped make the CBS comedy a huge success. One burning question in the room was whether Lorre would have the former Men star back for the one-hour finale after their public falling out and Sheen’s firing from the show four years ago. Lorre, in a meeting with reporters, said there will be a “cast of thousands” for the final episode but is keeping their identities a secret not to spoil things for viewers.

However, Chuck admitted “it’s tricky” to figure out the best way to conclude the show and honour the entire run after it “morphed into something else entirely” when Ashton Kutcher – who hasn’t shied away from talking about Charlie – joined the cast for the last four years. At first, Lorre simply answered the Sheen question by saying, “I think we’re going to have a finale you’re going to be very pleased with and that’s all I’m going to say about it.” But later, Lorre reconsidered and interrupted his own answer to another question to circle back and add a bit more: “It would be inappropriate to not acknowledge the extraordinary success we had with Charlie and how grateful I am, we all are, to his contributions. Rumors have circulated that Sheen will return for the series finale, set for Feb. 19, even though Sheen departed amid animosity, leading Lorre to kill his character off. Charlie was fired after after making several rants against Chuck, Warner Bros. and CBS – and subsequently fired a lawsuit before settling for a reported seven-figure sum.

He appeared on the panel with Lorre, sitting between original cast members Jon Cryer and Holland Taylor. “How to honor both is the challenge of this finale,” Lorre said. “And the other challenge is how to get people to watch it without telling them what it is.” Now, the show boss has insisted “there are no wounds” to heal, and over the programme’s lengthy run he has nothing “to complain about” – and from the sound of it, neither will fans after the finale. I think we did that in a way that will be funny. [What’s important is that the show] always goes back to that — that people will laugh and [say], ‘S***, did they really do that?’ ”

After the panel, Lorre was asked if time has healed some of the “wounds” from those events. “There are no wounds,” he said, though noted he hasn’t personally spoken to Sheen since the falling out. “What happened, happened.
