But when that series was renewed, Wayans was unable to continue with this series after the pilot. He was replaced with Lamorne Morris as Winston. After "Happy Endings" was canceled, Wayans was able to return to this series in the third season.
Amanda Bynes was considered for the role of Jess, that went to Zooey Deschanel.
A few episodes of season 5 were filmed along with the 22 episodes of the fourth season because Zooey Deschanel was pregnant, so with the show moving to mid season, the network will order more episodes to have a complete season to air.
