Executive Producer Greg Garcia Says: "I've had some chats with people at the network and studio. We're going to try to do nine episodes, which will be very cool, because I was worried our order would get cut down. The only thing that could stop us is if we have story trouble for some reason, but I'm optimistic. We're gonna do an hour repremiere and an hour finale and five episodes in between. The plan is for production to start two weeks from today, so we have to have a table read a week from tomorrow, so we have a lot to get done."
What We're Hearing: Two scripts that were mostly finished before the strike hit will be held back and become Earl's hourlong season finale.
