Charlie Sheen's spokesman says the Two and a Half Men star wants to get back to work this month.
The 45-year-old actor remains in rehab but hopes to return to the comedy show by the end of February, publicist Stan Rosenfield revealed.
The series halted production after Charlie sought treatment for undisclosed reasons following a 911 call and brief stay at a Los Angeles hospital last week.
According to a tape of the call to emergency services, the star was said to be intoxicated and in pain.
With uncertainty over Charlie's return, the CBS channel is planning to use a combination of Two and a Half Men re-runs and other sitcoms to fill out its Monday night schedule.
