Charlie Sheen wrapped filming the seventh season of his hit show Two and A Half Men in Burbank, California last night — and there was no finale fanfare.
“It was business as usual: no goodbyes, farewell, tears or anything which would have suggested it was his final episode ever,” said a source, who was in the audience.
Cast and crew also had a traditional season ending wrap party last night.
“Charlie got a standing ovation at the end of the taping, but he offered very little emotion if it was his final curtain,” added the source.
For weeks, Sheen, 44, has been the subject of intense negotiations about his future on the CBS series.
He broke his silence yesterday about his contract which expired at the end of last night’s taping.
“If tonight’s show is the end for me as Charlie Harper, so be it,” Sheen said in a statement.
“Another journey has begun. I take from the experience 161 shows filled with a kaleidoscope of amazing experiences, memories, friendships and gratitude. I remain humbly inspired.”
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Sheen is unlikely to quit the show as he postures to get the best possible deal.
But Sheen has denied he is playing a game of bluff with network bosses.
“A negotiation ploy is something you do to get the best possible deal,” said Sheen’s publicist Stan Rosenfield.
“Charlie told them what he wanted a year ago.”
Warner Bros. TV had reportedly offered him nearly $1 million per episode, up from the $850,000 he received for Friday night’s work.
Sheen said those numbers were “without merit”.
Sheen, who faces domestic violence charges stemming from a Christmas Day fight with wife Brooke Mueller, entered rehab on February 24 as “a preventative measure” and has been returning to rehab after work each night.
A trial date has been set for July 21.
