Charlie Sheen has taken to Twitter to bid farewell to the TV reboot Roseanne after ABC cancelled the series.

“Adios Roseanne! Good riddance,” Charlie tweeted on Tuesday. “Hashtag NOT Winning. The runway is now clear for OUR reboot.”

He finished off the tweet by adding the hashtag #CharlieHarperReturns and included a picture of a script from his previously successful series, Two and a Half Men.

Charlie’s erratic behavior, including calling the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, a “contaminated little maggot,” led to his dismissal from the long-running CBS comedy, with Ashton Kutcher then taking over in a new role as his replacement. Charlie’s character, Charlie Harper, was killed off twice — once by being thrown in front of a train, and then again when a helicopter dropped a piano on him.

Charlie’s Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer retweeted his Twitter post and added the tongue-in-cheek message: “What could go wrong?”

ABC cancelled Roseanne on Tuesday following a racist tweet by star Roseanne Barr, suggesting that former Obama advisor Valerie Jarett is the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & planet of the apes.”

After receiving serious backlash from the public, celebrities, and even her own co-stars, Roseanne deleted the tweet and has since apologized for the “bad joke.” She also released another now-deleted tweet in which she blamed the sleeping aid Ambien for her racially charged comment.

“It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting – it was memorial day too – I went 2 far & do not want it defended – it was egregious Indefensible,” the tweet read. “I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but… don’t defend it please.”

Drug company Sanofi, which produces Ambien, responded to Roseanne’s claim with a tweet Wednesday morning: “While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.” ~Caitlyn Clancey
