The upcoming season of "Two and a Half Men" won’t be affected by Charlie Sheen’s legal problems as the television star has made a deal with prosecutors that will resolve his assault case with a rehab visit and probation, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
Warner Bros., which produces the show, plans to restart production within two weeks, the story says. The show’s next season will debut Sept. 20 on CBS.
Sheen, who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault on his wife during a fight on Christmas Day in Aspen, Colo., must report to Promises Treatment Center in California within 30 days and was sentenced to stay there for 30 days, according to an Associated Press article.
Sheen must also serve 30 days of probation and undergo 36 hours of anger management classes. The actor’s attorney said Sheen has already spent 93 days at Promises this year and that the treatment center could credit that time toward the sentence, the story says.
