Two and a Half Men is back to full capacity.
Charlie Sheen returned to the set of his hit CBS sitcom this morning and production resumed after being shut down for the last three weeks to accommodate his stint in rehab, according to a rep for Warner Bros. Television.
Sheen sought what his publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said was voluntary in-patient treatment at an undisclosed facility as a "preventive measure" to deal with his personal issues. CBS released a statement in support of Sheen's move.
The network also insisted the work stoppage wouldn't be noticed by viewers, because the 44-year-old actor timed his break to coincide with a planned two-week hiatus, thus delaying shooting by only a week.
There are four episodes left to shoot for this season.
The newly sober Sheen was all smiles yesterday when he turned up at an Aspen courthouse to plead not guilty to domestic violence charges resulting from the Christmas Day row with wife Brooke Mueller.
If convicted, he could face up to five years in state prison. However, Aspen District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said he hasn't ruled out a plea bargain in advance of the July 21 trial.
What a long strange trip indeed. Check out our Charlie Sheen: Road to Rehab gallery here.
