News recently surfaced that, in light of NBC’s cancellation of My Name Is Earl, TBS was interested in picking up the show for 13 new episodes. The cable channel currently airs the first three seasons and is scheduled to add season four in the Fall.
Unfortunately, all sides weren’t able to come to an agreement so there won’t be a fifth season of the sitcom. The Hollywood Reporter reports that series creator Greg Garcia and producing studio 20th Century Fox TV decided not pursue the deal after looking at the necessary budget cuts. Meanwhile, the LA Times believes that TBS felt they wouldn’t be able to afford the show and cut the discussions short. Either way, the end result’s the same.
Yesterday, actor Ethan Suplee (Randy on Earl) indicated that the deal was still possible. On Twitter, he wrote, “I heard TBS MIGHT stand for TheBestStation.” Earlier today, he changed his tune and wrote, “TBS isn’t TheBestStation for reviving Earl. Good news is I’m now available to play Shia Laboof’s better looking brother in Transformers 3.”
A little while ago, 20th Century Fox TV issued a statement that said, “Greg Garcia’s brilliant My Name Is Earl kept America laughing for the past four seasons and certainly deserved to continue for many more.”
“While we had hoped to find a way to produce additional episodes for TBS, in the final analysis we simply could not make the economics work without seriously undermining the artistic integrity of the series. As none of us, Greg included, want the show to go out on anything but a high note, we regret that we must put to rest any speculation that Earl will continue.”
“We are grateful to everyone at TBS for their enthusiasm for the series and wish to offer our heartfelt thanks to the cast and crew of My Name Is Earl for their incredible work.”
So, the sitcom is apparently over. Unfortunately, the viewers have been left hanging. If you had your choice, how would you like to see the Earl story concluded?

the best comedy. beats seinfeld every which way.which it could go for at least 10 seasons. damned funny.
What you need to do is make a movie that covers everything like does Earl finish his list, who is Earl jrs father (Harmon Keesh, that’s my nickname), is Earl really dodges father, what is earls reward from karma for finishing his list, oh and I think after the credits you should make a short scene where randy’s dream of being married to pinky in Connecticut with three children comes true, that would be a great movie that I’m sure all “My name is Earl fans would love.
Joy was pregnant with dodge when she met earl. She’s tricked earl into marrying her because of being pregnant. He didn’t lick the chalk so her friends got him drunk to marrying her
What y’all need to do is make a My name is Earl movie that covers everything like the end of the list, who’s earl jrs dad, is dodge really earls son, and what does karma do for earl since he finished his list
I rewatch this show all the time. Can’t get enough of Joy Turner lol! Really wish they’d find a way to revive it. They left us with so many unanswered questions :/ *sighs* such a great show, I really hate it ended so quick.
Maybe Netflix will figure somethingredients the and bring it back like they did Full House. Would be great.
I know it ended in 2009 but YOU HAVE AND NEED TO TELL US HOW IT ENDS ITS NOT OKAY TO LEAVE US HANGING EVEN IF ITS BEEN 7 YEARS THATS JUST MESSED UP!!!!!!!!!! >:O!!!!!!!!!!
