The season premiere of "Two and a Half Men" will leave NO DOUBT -- Charlie Sheen's character is dead and gone ... for good.

TMZ has spoken with sources on set for last night's taping of the premiere. Now, we don't want to be douche bags and give it all away -- so we'll just say that in one brilliantly written scene, the producers make sure there's absolutely no way for 'Charlie Harper' to return to the show in the future. 

Although ... he definitely leaves his mark on the episode.

As for Ashton Kutcher's debut -- we're told he and Jon Cryer had good chemistry ... and he went out of his way to interact with the audience.  At one point Ashton even snuck into the crowd and surprised a woman with a back rub.

At least one audience member said Ashton seemed dry and didn't quite own the character. Can't please 'em all.

Oh, and our spies didn't spot Demi Moore or Chuck Lorre -- but it's a good bet Chuck was there to finally say sayonara to Charlie Sheen Charlie Harper.

Never Say Never! Rose is the only one who saw Charlie dead! He definitely can come back based in this story line. Lorrie can be fired if Ashton does not work out. CBS obviously wanted all of their bases covered. Ashton was not great.

WE MISS CHARLIE HARPER! Waldon is not even close to Charlie. We gave it a chance but we hope the show goes off. It is in bad taste and wrong to be so rude about Charlie, he was TAHM.

Hey, interesting post. I have written a fan fiction in the form of a letter from Charlie to Jake, describing how he escaped from the attempt on his life by Rose and what he is currently up to. Please have a look.
Charlie Is Alive!
