The Hollywood Reporter says that ABC has locked in most of the main cast members of “Scrubs” to return for the ninth season.
Star Zach Braff has closed a deal to come back for six episodes to transition the show to its new set-up, which is still being worked out. Also signed for six episodes is Sarah Chalke.
Donald Faison, John C. McGinley and Neil Flynn have all closed deals to continue as regulars in second position to their pilots. Faison and Flynn co-star in ABC pilots, “The Law,” which is already unofficially staffing, and “The Middle,” respectively. McGinley is on CBS’ drama pilot “Back.”
Meanwhile, Judy Reyes has not been approached for a deal but may appear as a guest star if “Scrubs” is renewed.
