After 12 years on the air, Two and a Half Men will end its run on CBS tonight. But outside of what is seen on the television screen, there seems to be a dispute brewing between crew members and studio executives.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series finale for Two and a Half Men had its final day of filming on February 6. Some unnamed sources noted that they were hoping to celebrate in a big way, since the series had a lengthy and successful run. But once filming was completed, the crew was treated to food trucks and didn’t receive any gifts from CBS or Warner Bros. executives. Meanwhile, the cast of Two and a Half Men received watches that reportedly cost $28,000.
One member of the Two and a Half Men filming crew revealed that they were not happy with the way they were treated for all the work they put into the show.
“[The] crew is in complete shock. Shame, shame, shame on those producers, CBS, and Warner Bros.!”
But one studio source said that the crew will be receiving their gifts shortly. The person also noted that the crew were given gifts in celebration of Two and a Half Men’s 100th and 200th episodes.
“We have never in our history done anything to indicate otherwise.”
With the finale of Two and a Half Men airing tonight, many fans are wondering if series alumnus Charlie Sheen will make a return. Even though his character was killed off four years ago, the Inquisitr previously reported that the series finale is titled “Of Course He’s Dead – Part One and Part Two.” But neither creator Chuck Lorre nor anyone else involved with the show has confirmed if Sheen will actually appear in tonight’s finale.
Back in December 2014, when the Two and a Half Men finale was not yet filmed, Ashton Kutcher went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the series. But he didn’t reveal too much about what the episode contains.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it. I’m scared. I’m a little terrified.”
“Thank you Mr. Cryer for making this job never feel like work. I will miss working with you every day. You are a true partner in every sense of the word. In four years I never heard you complain and never heard you speak ill of another person even if they took advantage of your kindness and generosity. [You] are a gentleman. You are a talent. You are someone I look up to. See you tomorrow night.”
