Season four had ended with the caption 'To Be Continued', but NBC cancelled Earl on May 19, 2009. The series' producer, 20th Television, approached the Fox, ABC, TBS and TNT networks to continue the series, but they were unable to come to terms without "seriously undermining the artistic integrity of the series."

    Part of the show's ad campaign before the series aired included billboard ads with Earl's picture and one of the items from his list printed on the billboard (i.e. "Cheated my way through the seventh grade...twice", "Stole a car from a one-legged girl", "Faked my death to break up with a girl" etc.), with the tag line "...I'm sorry".

    Although Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee had worked together before, producer Gregory Thomas Garcia didn't discover Suplee because of that--he discovered him while watching the DVD version of Without a Paddle because another actor in it had been recommended to him. What convinced Garcia to bring Suplee in for an audition were comments about him he heard on the DVD's commentary track. One of the actors in the commentary told the story of a dispute between the film's director and Suplee. The scene the actor described was one where Suplee's character was supposed to be pointing a gun at some people Suplee and others had captured. The commentary noted that Suplee had insisted that he shouldn't point his gun at them after all, since in Suplee's mind, it had taken so long to capture the people that it had given the character time to rethink his motives. Suplee got his way in the scene, over the director's objections. The fact that Suplee would think so much about such a small detail was enough to get him an audition. Garcia and the show's writers have subsequently used Suplee's attention to detail to the show's advantage, in various "pestered by a bee" background activities that Suplee's character does in various scenes. The first such scene was an improvisation in the pilot, where Suplee is looking up at the ceiling with his mouth open.

    On October 1, 2013, Greg Garcia participated in an AMA. A fan asked "who was Earl Jr's real father and did Earl ever finish the list?" He replied that Earl Jr's real father would have been someone famous like Dave Chappelle or Lil John who Joy slept with and that Earl was never going to finish the list he would have been stuck on a list item and would get frustrated until he runs into someone with a list and Earl was on it he asks them where they got the idea and they say someone else had a list and he got the idea from someone else. Earl then realizes his list started a chain reaction of people with lists and that he's put some good into the world. So Earl would tear up his list and go live his life. Walk into the sunset a free man. With good karma.
