Angus T. Jones will be returning to Two and a Half Men for the first time since renouncing the show and calling it “filth.”
Jones will also have a new –and older — love interest, played by Jaime Pressly, according to Deadline.
Chuck Lorre confirmed that Jones would be back on set Monday, and said that he forgave the teenager for his controversial video.
“He’s part of our show. He’s part of our family. We love him,” Lorre said. “He’s 19, man. Cut him some slack.”
Lorre also agreed with Jones about the show’s content.
“I can’t really disagree with him — the show’s kind of filthy,” Lorre said. “What he said wasn’t wrong… We hope it’s funny, as well.”
Not only is Jones returning to the show, but CBS has said that the network wants another season of the comedy.
“We’ve told Warner Bros. TV that we would like to have a 11th season,” CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said. “They’re equally interested.”
Tassler also said that the network would like Jones to come back if they show does get another season. She also said there were no hard feelings about his comments about the show.
“You know what, the kid is 19 years old, OK? I’ve got a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24, there have been plenty of things my kid has said that I wish he hadn’t. But I think the bottom line is, cooler heads prevailed,” Tassler said. “He’s been a beloved member of that cast for years and years. He issued a public apology. At the end of the day, they want him back, he wants to come back, he’s tabling next week, and that’s it. And we move on.”
Do you think Two and a Half Men should get an eleventh season?
