Scrubs May Come Back for Ninth Season

ON

The Hollywood Reporter says that ABC is in talks to renew “Scrubs” for a ninth season with some or all of the original cast members coming back full or part-time.

The network is going over the proposed budget for next season with series producer ABC Studios.

“Scrubs” creator Bill Lawrence, busy editing his ABC/ABC Studios comedy pilot “Cougar Town,” is said to be deeply involved in the renewal talks as well as in the discussions with the cast, who don’t have deals beyond the show’s current eighth season.

Talks are under way with the original cast members about ways to bring them back, possibly as recurrings, as in the case of Zach Braff, who had said this was probably his last year on the show, as well as Donald Faison, John C. McGinley and Neil Flynn, who are co-starring on other pilots.
