Chuck Lorre said at Deadline’s Contenders TV on Sunday that Charlie Sheen will return for a cameo in season 2 of Max’s Bookie.

The former star of Two and a Half Men showed up in season one as himself in the Sebastian Maniscalco comedy. The reunion almost upstaged the comedy itself, which follows bookie Danny (Maniscalco) as he and his partner, former NFL star Ray (Omar J. Dorsey), romp around Los Angeles trying to keep their illegal sports betting operation in play.

Bookie is an American comedy television series created by Chuck Lorre and Nick Bakay starring Sebastian Maniscalco, Omar Dorsey, Andrea Anders, Vanessa Ferlito, Jorge Garcia, Maxim Swinton, and Charlie Sheen. It premiered on Max on November 30, 2023. In January 2024, the series was renewed for a second season.

In Season 1 of Bookie on Max, Sheen played a fictionalized version of himself in a recurring role. The show was renewed for a second season after pulling in some strong reviews, though it hadn't been clear if Sheen would return. At Deadline's Contenders TV 2024, Lorre verified that Sheen would be back in Season 2, though he didn't say if this would be limited to a cameo or in a recurring capacity. He went on to praise Sheen's work as a performer.

“I’ve always been an admirer of his work. His work is impeccable,” Lorre said. “After all this time, his chops are undiminished. It was an extraordinary experience to put everything behind us and work together again.”

Lorre created the series with Nick Bakay. It stars comedian Sebastian Maniscalco as Danny, a bookie who partners up with a former NFL star, Ray, (Omar J. Dorsey) to run an illegal sports betting operation. The series also stars Andrea Anders as Danny's wife, Sandra; Vanessa Ferlito as Lorraine, Danny's sister; Jorge Garcia as the reformed drug dealer, Hector; and Maxim Swinton as Sandra's son, Anthony.

“Every collection is an adventure,” Bakay said of what will happen with Ray and Danny in the next season. “They are in a business where they either have large windfalls or they are vulnerable to predators. There will be a roller coaster ride [in Season 2], and there may be a trip to Costa Rica.

Sheen and Lorre have reformed their relationship, but fans should not expect a revival of Two and a Half Men. Former co-star Jon Cryer is hesitant to collaborate with Sheen on a major project, while Lorre prefers to focus on creating new content. Both actors have acknowledged their fractured relationship and expressed reluctance to rekindle the show.

"It’s foolish to say never," he said of a possible revival, per Variety. "It’s still to me more gratifying and fun to do new stuff. And to let the stuff we did in the past be the past.”
