"[Chuck Lorre] is very psyched about this," Tassler said. "He's got some great ideas in store and some very big surprises."

Asked if the series former star Charlie Sheen would be returning for the show's last season, Tassler said it's up to series creator, Lorre.

"I would like to see whatever Chuck would like to," Tassler hedged. "Chuck knows his show better than me...he has a lot of surprises in store, I don't know if that's one of them."
