The ninth season of Two and a Half Men premiered on CBS on September 19, 2011, with Ashton Kutcher joining the cast as Walden Schmidt. This season is the first without the show's previous star Charlie Sheen, and features a rebooted plot, marking a major change in the series by focusing on Alan and Jake coping with life after the death of Charlie, with help from their new best friend and housemate, Walden, a dot-com billionaire who is in the process of being divorced by his wife. The trio bond and form a surrogate family unit. This was the last season to air on Mondays.
Note: The billing for the regular characters changed in the opening credits this season in that Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher are listed at the same time and Conchata Ferrell is listed before Marin Hinkle. The Complete Ninth Season DVD cover dropped Marin Hinkle's name and character from the cast list altogether, and CBS press releases for season 9 billed Hinkle as a recurring cast member.
Following Charlie Sheen's firing on March 7, 2011, there was much speculation as to whether the show would be canceled for good, following the cancelation of the previous season. Chuck Lorre revealed that he'd considered ending the show, but thought that it would've been \"such a heartbreaking way to end\". On May 13, 2011, it was announced that Ashton Kutcher would be taking over from Sheen, playing new character Walden Schmidt. It was also announced that the writers would kill off Charlie Harper. For a revamped show, the producers re-decorated the main set of the beach house, which was used up until the final season.The theme tune was also revamped, with two new singers used in the opening sequence. The new variation of the theme was used only until the end of this season, before another variation was used for seasons 10 and 11, except for a production error in the third episode of season 10 in which season 9's variation of the theme is heard. Ashton Kutcher assisted Chuck Lorre with the creation of Walden Schmidt and co-wrote the story of \"Slowly and in a Circular Fashion\", which develops his character. The character of Charlie Harper, despite being killed off, was re-introduced late in the season as a ghost in a woman's body for a guest reprisal, played by Kathy Bates. Chuck Lorre described the casting as a \"gender bending role\".
CBS president Les Moonves was extremely pleased with the season, saying \"This show could last with the current numbers it has for many, many years.\" Jon Cryer believed that Kutcher had added a new energy to the show and revitalized it.
Walden meets up with Zoey again to convince her that, one week after their first date, he is finally over Bridget. As she is sceptical, he proves his intentions by signing his divorce papers in front of her. After that, the two start dating again and things seem to be going great. Walden helps Zoey to get her daughter enrolled in a private kindergarten and they even fly to Mexico in Walden's private jet. This idyll is disturbed when Bridget shows up at Walden's house to tell him that she wants him back. The two go upstairs to have sex and, after pretending that he needs to use the bathroom and asking Alan for advice about what to do, Walden rejects her and suggests that she sign the divorce papers so that they can both move on with their lives (because Alan did not want Walden to sell the house and have to move back into Evelyn's). Bridget is furious that Walden waited to tell her until she was half-naked in his bed and storms out. She then proceeds to drive her car into his house. Later, Bridget is shown standing on the deck, stalking Walden and Zoey. Rose shows up unexpectedly and proposes to \"teach\" her, an offer that she hesitantly accepts.
Walden and Zoey are on their way back from their dinner in San Francisco when the jet hits turbulence; in the tense moment, Walden says \"I love you\" to Zoey, which she does not return. This bugs Walden and he considers breaking it off, especially when he tries to get it out of her as she rushes to London on a business trip. Feeling rejected, Walden meets Zoey's neighbor Jennifer in the elevator and brings her back to the house for a walk on the beach and get better acquainted; Zoey calls Walden to clear up the matter (revealing that she's said it twice only for bad things to happen, once to Nigel and again to Russell Brand), only for Jennifer to walk into the room and ruin the call. Jake is instantly infatuated with Jennifer, and awkwardly attempts to woo her multiple times, telling her that he is 24-and-a-half years old.
Alan becomes concerned about Lyndsey's drinking problem, which leads her to vomit all over Alan's bathroom; Berta refuses to clean it up and forces Alan to do so instead, but Jake offers to do it in exchange for $75.00 for a new Call of Duty game so he'll know how to kill terrorists after high school. Walden brings Alan and Lyndsey to London with him to clear up the misunderstanding about Jennifer to Zoey, where Lyndsey drunkenly tries to talk to the guys about love only to vomit all over them, and subsequently the three of them vomit all over the jet. In London, Alan and Walden clear everything up with Zoey, who is still furious. As the guys and Lyndsey begin to leave, Zoey admits she loves Walden, and they reconcile with a kiss. Alan and Lyndsey follow suit, also professing their love to each other and kissing, only for the hungover Lyndsey to vomit in his mouth. Jennifer has sex with Jake (offscreen) while the adults are away, and the episode ends with Jake at the beach house bragging to a friend (presumably, Eldridge) over the phone about how they had sex five times, calling it the best half-hour of his life.
Alan fears for the boys and the security of America, and steals Jake's application, though unfortunately it is only a copy. The family gives him a teary though half-hearted sendoff. Finally, Jake and Eldridge are seen in basic training, crawling under barbed wire, wondering about their decision.
So, for me, I think my epiphany took place about halfway through the episode. It wasn't Lyndsey sleeping with Walden. I mean, who could blame him after watching Cinnamon's Buns and they've built Walden up to be god's gift to women.
This season focuses on Alan (Jon Cryer) and his son Jake (Angus T. Jones) moving on with their lives after Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) unexpectedly dies off-screen due to a subway train while in Paris with Rose with the help of their new housemate, internet billionaire Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher), who buys the Malibu Beach House which was put up for sale by Alan and Jake Harper. Walden, who is a dot-com billionaire, is in the process of being divorced by his wife. Alan temporarily moved in with his and Charlie's mother, Evelyn after Charlie's beach house was sold to Walden. Alan and Jake were invited to move back into Charlie's beach house permanently by Walden after Alan, with the help of Walden's ex-wife, Bridget saved him from a con-artist. Walden, Alan and Jake eventually bond and formed a surrogate family unit. Walden starts to date Zoey, a British woman he met at The Malibu Grocery Store. Charlie pays Alan a visit from the afterlife, as a ghost trapped in a woman's body (Kathy Bates) but his intentions for coming back are rather suspicious. Jake approaches adulthood fast pending his graduation from high school. He joins the army after graduation and leaves Malibu at the end of the season.
Following Sheen's firing from the show, Chuck Lorre developed an idea of Two and a Half Men re-boot. In May 2011, Ashton Kutcher was hired as Sheen's replacement and Jon Cryer took on as lead role. In August 2011, Ashton Kutcher's character was named Walden Schmidt, an internet billionaire with a broken heart who buys Charlie's beach house after his death in a subway accident after \"slipping\" in front of a train while in Paris with Rose. Charlie Sheen's character would be killed off in the 2 part season premiere that aired on September 19 and 26, 2011.
For all intents and purpose, Lorre has decided against using the Two and a Half Men season 9 premiere to build a new foundation - from which the series can continue. Instead, the ability to publicly ridicule Charlie Sheen through his now-murdered character Charlie Harper served as the driving force of this episode.
Sheen entered drug rehabilitation during the middle of the show's eighth season, forcing production to go on hiatus. Filming was set to resume later that same month, but those plans were thwarted when Sheen did a series of controversial interviews, including an infamous radio interview the actor did with the Alex Jones Show.
Once the comments came out, production on the season was officially canceled, and Sheen was fired from the show a few weeks later. While Sheen's departure created a media frenzy and put the future of the show in jeopardy, eventually, Lorre announced that Two and a Half Men would be rebooted in its ninth season and that Charlie Harper would be killed off.
Two and a Half Men would go on for four more seasons before finally ending in 2015. The series finale teased the return of Sheen's Charlie Harper by revealing that the character was alive the whole time. However, the whole thing turned out to be a joke, and the show ended with a meta-gag featuring a fake Sheen getting crushed by a falling piano, while Lorre shouts \"Winning\" from the background before a piano falls on him as well.
The actress will play the mother of Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) in at least two episodes this season, although it isn't known when Mimi Rogers' debut episode will air. It is said that Mimi Rogers' character is a celebrated primatologist, a scientist who studies apes. 59ce067264
