"After a grueling two whole months away from Warner Bros. Television since Two and a Half Men ended, it's time for me to finally come home," joked Cryer. "I'm looking forward to making great television — and my next hug from Peter Roth."

The deal comes after Cryer spent 12 years working for the studio with his starring role on CBS' Two and a Half Men.

In the two months since the show's completion, Cryer has released So That Happened, his New York Times best-selling memoir that details his perception of former co-star Charlie Sheen's infamous meltdown.

Cryer joins his former Two and a Half Men boss, Chuck Lorre, who also has a producing deal at the studio.

Cryer is repped by UTA, Forward Entertainment and Myman Greenspan.
