UPDATE: “Two and a Half Men” has been renewed for the 2013-2014 broadcast season, CBS announced Monday.

“The renewal comes after new agreements were reached for next season with series producer Warner Bros. Television, as well as cast members Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer,” CBS said. “Producers are in discussions with Angus T. Jones about a recurring role next season while he is attending college.”

Previous Story…

Two and a Half Men” is coming back to CBS next season, but will be down one long-running star.

The Chuck Lorre comedy has signed deals with Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer to come back for the show’s 11th season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, young star Angus T. Jones will not return as a regular character in the show. This past season saw his character Jake in the Army and often out of sight.

Instead, CBS and studio Warner Bros. Television are considering an offer for Jones, who publicly bashed the show last year, to potentially serve as a recurring character.

Jones, of course, drew notoriety when a video of him calling “Two and a Half Men” “filth” surfaced. He also urged viewers to stop watching the show.
