Alas, for fans of Two and a Half Men, the news that Charlie Sheen wants to leave CBS’s hit sitcom after seven season was not a cruel joke in honor of April Fool’s Day.

“Charlie’s just done,” a set source told PEOPLE. “And he’s quietly telling his friends he’s not coming back.”

Though a source close to the show says “negotiations are ongoing and nothing has been determined,” a friend of actor says “he wants to move on” after he tapes this season’s 22nd episode on April 9.

But could the show go on without its star? –Blane Bachelor
