Charlie Sheen Returning to 'Two and a Half Men'!

The numbers finally came together as CBS reached an agreement to keep the sitcom star around for a couple more years

Two and a Half Men will be returning next season with its cast intact, now that Charlie Sheen has finally agreed to stick with the sitcom for two more years.

"To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights,” Sheen said in a statement.

Denying that his recent salary negotiations were a ploy to scare producers of the CBS hit into giving him more cash, Sheen says the network was well aware of the possibility that he might be moving on. The actor's previous contract expired at the end of the show's seventh season, which filmed its final episode in April. The series, costarring Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, first premiered in 2003.

CBS is scheduled to announce its Fall 2010 primetime lineup -- Two and a Half Men included -- on Wednesday.
