According to sources for The Hollywood Reporter, Lorre wants to relaunch the Warner Bros-produced sitcom and introduce a new character to fill the void left by Sheen, who was fired in March.
The new character has yet to be cast; however, rumours have suggested that Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget have been considered.
The idea of a rotating roommate casting, which would feature several different actors visiting the show, has also reportedly been suggested.
Men's return to the CBS schedule has not yet been confirmed by the network. Nevertheless, the report suggests that the series will return for a ninth season.
Lorre's new plan for the show is said to include greater screen time for co-star Jon Cryer.
Sheen has previously suggested that he may rejoin the cast of Men, even going so far as to say that he would consider dropping his lawsuit against CBS in order to return to the show.
