Charlie Sheen's character on Two And A Half Men will exit the series in a bloody bang.
Earlier this week, pictures were released showing a funeral scene, complete with flower arrangements, church pews and one of the iconic bowling shirts worn by Charlie Harper throughout the show.
Now new details have emerged revealing Charlie will die a violent death when he is mowed down by a subway trained.
During the same episode, Ashton Kutcher will make his début performance as internet billionaire Walter Schmidt, who ends up buying Charlie's Malibu beach house.
Chuck Lorre the show creator reportedly considered several scenarios, including having Charlie drive off a cliff, but he settled on a bloody subway accident.
Original cast: Charlie is being killed off to make way for Ashton Kutcher
According to TMZ, sources at last night's taping revealed Charlie's character married Rose - the neighbour/stalker he flew to Paris with last season -- but things went downhill quickly when she found him in the shower with another woman.
Sourced told TMZ Rose spoke at the funeral and recounted what happened to Charlie.
She revealed the day after the shower incident she and Charlie were waiting for a Paris subway train when Charlie 'slipped' and the subway trained ripped his body apart.
The scene is said to allude to the fact that Rose pushed him and got away with it.
TMZ has also reported that the episode will feature celebrity guest stars Jenny McCarthy and John Stamos.
The former E.R. star, who was once rumoured to be Sheen's replacement on the show, is reported to be saying a few 'raunchy words' about his friendship with Charlie Harper at the funeral.
Sources also revealed that Jenny McCarthy will also be returning - she played one of Harper's ex girlfriends who broke up with him after becoming tired of having sex with him.
Following the announcement last month that Ashton would be joining the cast full time, Sheen told TMZ: 'Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer... Oh wait, so am I!!'
'Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton,' he added, referring to the show's creator and his nemesis, Chuck Lorre. 'There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.'
However it looks like Sheen could come back from the dead quicker than expected, as it has emerged he is being lined up to star in a new show.
It has been claimed the star has signed a lucrative deal with Lionsgate Television for a new sitcom that will cash in on his notoriety.
A bidding war is now said to be under way among broadcasters to land the rights to the show.
An insider told RadarOnline: ‘Charlie has inked a deal with Lionsgate Television to create and star in a new sitcom.’
‘Charlie's character will be very similar to the one he played on Two And a Half Men, however the show will be a lot racier.
‘Networks and cable are bidding on the show right now, with TBS being the front runner.
‘TBS recently expanded their comedy division with the acquisition of The Conan O'Brien Show after his fall out with NBC.
‘Plus cable makes more sense because it offers more creative freedom.
‘In other words the show can be raunchier and more outrageous, which is perfect for Charlie.’
It will could see the controversial star, who was sacked from his ratings winning starring vehicle Two And a Half Men, raking in even more cash than before.
He will not be getting paid the $2million (£1.25million) per episode he received the smash hit show.
