The CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men has found a way to bring back Charlie Sheen's deceased character Charlie Harper in an upcoming episode. Actress Kathy Bates will guest star as Charlie Harper's ghost in a Two and a Half Men episode airing April 30. Take a look at the network's brief announcement below.

"Academy Award winner Kathy Bates will guest star as the ghost of Charlie Harper, on Two and a Half Men, Monday, April 30 (9:00-9:31 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. After Alan suffers a minor heart attack, Charlie's ghost (Bates) will pay a visit to his hospital bedside."

Kathy Bates currently stars on the NBC legal series Harry's Law, and it isn't known if the door is open for the actress to return as Charlie Harper's ghost. Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen this season as Walden Schmidt, an eccentric millionaire who purchased Charlie Harper's house after his untimely death.

Two and a Half Men returns tonight, March 19, with Episode 9.19: Palmdale, Ech, the show's first new episode in three weeks.
