LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Is “Scrubs” finally a goner?
According to star Zach Braff, the long-running comedy is finished.
After nine seasons and two networks, Braff says the ABC series won’t return next year. Posting on Facebook, Braff said to fans: “Many of you have asked, so here it is: It appears that ‘New Scrubs,’ ‘Scrubs 2.0,’ ‘Scrubs with new kids,’ ‘Scrubbier,’ ‘Scrubs without JD’ is no more. It was worth a try, but alas ... it didn’t work. zb”
Braff, who played Dr. John “J.D.” Dorian on the medical series, starred in only a handful of episodes this season, which attempted to reboot the show by adding younger cast members.
An ABC representative said the network hasn’t made an official decision. Given the program’s weak ratings this year, a return does seem unlikely, especially in light of ABC’s comedy success with its Wednesday block led by “Modern Family.”
