Welcome back, Scrubbers! You know what that promo pic means? New Scrubs. And soon (ish). ABC has announced that Scrubs will be premiering on January 6, which means that finally I (and many other long-time Scrubs fans) will be able to see the stories of some of my favourite characters of television history wrap up, and my youth will get some closure as I move from a young adult to… a slightly older young adult.
At this point, before the 8th and potentially final season has even begun, I’m feeling that as long as JD & Elliot, Turk & Carla, Kelso and maybe even Cox are all wrapped up and given some closure, then Scrubs could continue into a 9th season with an all-new main cast. It would feel like a new show, and hell, we all know Scrubs could use some freshness. Plus, I wouldn’t feel like I’d have to constantly defend it anymore.
Oh yeah, you know what else I’m excited about? New Lost.
Latest Scrubs news, for all you Scrubaniacs (is that.. appropriate? i don’t know) out there in Scrubton Lower:
- Zach Braff and Bill Lawrence will not do a 9th season, full stop.
- Judy Reyes won’t either.
- NBC won’t let any of the actors still working for them guest star in Scrubs 8th and potentially last season, because they’re assholes.
- **SPOILER** The Janitor gets married in the Bahamas. No joke. ***END SPOILER***
- Courtney Cox will be doing a few episodes in the upcoming 8th season. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing or just a thing.
I have no idea when it’s coming back, but I’ve been following this show since the first episode and I just want it to get wrapped up nicely and neatly in a little package of sentimentality.
In semi-alright/moderately okay news for Scrubs fans, the creator Bill Lawrence (or ‘billy’ as John C. McGinley calls him) has spoken about the upcoming season – or seasons – of Scrubs and about ex-network NBC.
