Killed off: Charlie Sheen's Two and a Half Men character Charlie Harper will be killed off in the new season of the show
He was dramatically fired from hit comedy series Two and a Half Men earlier this year, to be replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
But Charlie Sheen's character in the series, Charlie Harper, faces a somewhat stickier end in the first episode of the forthcoming season.
According to reports, the jingle writing womaniser will be killed off, with cast members past and present attending his funeral.
All change: Ashton Kutcher takes Sheen's place in a new promo for the new season of Two and a Half Men alongside Angus T Jones and Jon Cryer
Deadline.com reports that the hotly anticipated episode will open with a memorial service attended by several of Harper's girlfriends.
His beach side home will then go on sale, with real life celebrities viewing the house.
This is then likely to lead to Sheen's replacement Ashton Kutcher buying the house with leading cast members Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones somehow remaining there with him.
The two-part season opener has been shrouded in secrecy with reports from Deadline that some scenes will be shot on a closed set.
Sheen has moved on to other projects and is currently developing a new comedy series Anger Management.
