Two And A Half Men, whose renewal by CBS is now a formality after stars Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones all have reached deals in principal to return, is reshuffling the showrunner deck for Season 10. Executive producer Lee Arohnson, who co-created Men with Chuck Lorre and has been co-running the series with him for the past nine seasons, is stepping down. Serving as co-showrunners alongside Lorre next season will be sitcom veterans Don Reo and Jim Patterson, who have served as executive producers on Two And A Half Men this season. Another Men executive producer, Eddie Gorodetsky, will continue in its dual capacity as executive producer on Two And A Half Men and consulting producer on one of Lorre’s other two CBS comedy series, The Big Bang Theory. Going forward, Aronsohn will serve as an executive consultant.
