A source on the hit TV show’s set tells HollywoodLife.com producers are concerned about the amount of money they’d have to pay Ashton Kutcher and the rest of the cast to stay on the show for another season and are considering cancelling it!
Even huge ratings might not be enough to keep CBS’s hit sitcom, Two and a Half Men, afloat. HollywoodLife.com can tell you exclusively it might not be renewed for a tenth season due to the cast’s over all high salary.
“Right now it’s all about the money,” a source on the show tells us. “CBS would have to give Ashton Kutcher a huge raise to stay on for another season, plus the rest of the cast makes a ton a money already. It might just be worth it to end on a huge note.”
After Charlie Sheen left the show in season eight, he was replaced by Ashton, who brought in an average of more than 16 million viewers a week (which was nearly a series all-time high!). However, despite the high ratings, the 34-year-old actor was still paid an estimated $15.4 million for the season, which would only increase.
“Discussions are still happening, but right now it’s looking like it’s 50/50 at best for renewal,” our source says.
