Will Two and a Half Men be losing one-third of its main cast in season 11?
But before we get to Jones' Men future, let's tackle an even more important question: Does CBS even want another season of the comedy?
"We have told Warner Bros. we'd like to have an eleventh season and they're equally interested," Tassler said. "Stay tuned."
Regarding Jones' future on Two and a Half Men, Tassler said, "We'd like him to be part of it next year he'd like it to be. I think he'd like to come back too. [Creator] Chuck [Lorre] would too... He's made his public apology, we've moved on." She added that the young star is set to hit a table read next week and reiterated that the network really wants him back next season, as does Warner Bros.
So is Ashton Kutcher already signed on for season 11? "No, not yet," Tassler admitted.
While it's been reported that How I Met Your Mother will be returning for a ninth season, there's been no official announcement from CBS. "I will be very happy to report in a very few days that things will be resolved," Tassler reported. "We are confident and excited that will all work out and almost everything is completed." Translation: Season 9 is a go.
Tassler also briefly addressed Jennifer Esposito's very public exit from Blue Bloods, saying, "We're sorry to see her go. We tried to resolve it, it didn't quite work out and we wish her the best."
Finally, we've got good news for Big Brother fans: The new season will premiere June 26 and will actually be longer, meaning more crazy shenanigans for you to guiltily enjoy!
