In a world of reboots and revivals, it seems like a better time than ever to go back My name is Earl. Debuting on NBC in 2005, the show was canceled in 2009 after four seasons. As creator Greg Garcia was anticipating a renewal of the show, the series concluded with a cliffhanger at the end of the fourth season, leaving several storylines unresolved. As the show maintained its fan base in later years through its live broadcasts, there has been interest in reviving it, and series star Jason Lee teased in 2020 that he hoped to revive the show as “at least, even a small three-part miniseries”. .”
In a new interview with ScreenRant to promote his new movie God is a bulletTake part in my acting Ethan Suplee Take chances My name is Earl is revived. He revealed that Garcia was in fact pitching a potential revival to various studios, but for whatever reason, there were no takers. Suplee points out that this is because the show, even with its cult following, still isn’t quite as popular as some of the other big shows from yesteryear that have been revived recently.
As Suplee explains:
Man, I think it would be great, and I think everyone involved said they would. Greg Garcia went and pitched it to a number of studios, and nobody was there. I think when you see shows that come back for a revival, like I think they did with Will & Grace and Full House, those were much bigger shows than My Name Is Earl. My Name Is Earl did well, but I don’t think it was always as big as Will & Grace.”

Suple also shares his belief that Garcia and his former buddies are still as interested as he is in revisiting the world of My name is Earl. The actor even says how much he likes the concept Garcia had in mind of how the story would end. With that said, Suplee also admits that he thinks it’s unlikely the series revival will happen at this point.
I think we’d all do it, and we’ve talked about doing it, and Greg Garcia has explained what the last episode might have been if he had been notified, like, ‘This is it,’ which is very good. It would really be the cherry on top of My Name is Earl, So I’d like it to happen, but I don’t have much hope that it will.”
