CBS has renewed Two and a Half Men for an eleventh season, but there’s a catch.
According to the report, Angus T. Jones is going to college in the fall. Therefore, the network and studio Warner Bros. Television are currently working out a deal for the young star to recur on the CBS comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
On the side of his co-stars, Ashton Kutcher and John Cryer have inked one year extensions in their contracts and will return as series regulars.

The pickup comes after a CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler told reporters in January at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that she’d like to see Jones continue with the series despite his controversial digs at the series that made him a star.
“He made his public apology and we’ve moved on,” she said of Jones’ comments, in which he declared the show “filth” and urged viewers to stop watching. “The kid is 19 years old. I’ve got a 24-year-old. Between the ages of 19 and 24, there’s been plenty of things my kid has said that I wish he hadn’t. The bottom line is cooler heads prevailed,” Tassler, a mother of two, told a group of reporters following the session.
