Writes Andreeva, "I have been able to confirm that Charlie Sheen’s character Charlie Harper is indeed dead and the season premiere will feature his funeral. Charlie’s girlfriends will come back for the occasion, and his house indeed will be put on the market."
The article continues, "The episode will feature potential buyers coming to see the house (as I reported earlier, the list is expected to include real-life celebrities and stars from ‘Men’ co-creator Chuck Lorre’s other series), with Ashton Kutcher among them. However, I hear he will not be the rightful owner of Charlie Harper’s digs by the end of the premiere episode, with the storyline expected to be extended into Episode 2."
She adds that the cast has been asked to sign non-disclosure agreements as to what happens, and that "potential audience members for the Friday taping" of the episode will also be required to sign non-disclosure forms.
