Scrubs Season 9 Secrets Revealed: Pretty Good News For Scrubs Fans - Featured

I, like most Scrubs fans, have been really down on the idea of a Season 9 with Dr. Cox and Turk becoming med-school teachers. While I still think the new season will be a let down, there has been a small silver lining announced that should make Scrubs fans a little more excited about Season 9.

*****************Spolier Alert********************************

When Scrubs returns, Elliot will be expecting, according to Sarah Chalke.

Scrubs' next season heads for the classroom

Scrubs executive producer Bill Lawrence decided to write Chalke's real-life pregnancy into the story line. "It's kind of a time cut into the future, so J.D. and I are already married and pregnant with our first kid," Chalke tells Hollywood 411's Marc Istook Tuesday.

Chalke, whose due date is Dec. 25, is happy about Lawrence's decision. "Bill was very generous to write it in, so I'm not, like, carrying a giant chart or something in front of my belly all the time," she says.

"I'm going to do a bunch [of episodes] until this baby gets too big for me to go to work anymore," she says. She adds that Zach Braff is also on board for the first six episodes; John C. McGinley and Donald Faison will be series regulars on the rebooted Scrubs, which returns to ABC in January.

Knowing that Zach Braff will be in at least the first 6 episodes is good news, as I was figuring he would appear in only 1 or 2 episodes the whole season, and I did not think Sarah Chalke was going to be part of the show at all. Does this news make you more excited about the upcoming Season 9 of Scrubs

I'm still going to watch it, but still feel kinda sad. It ended so brilliantly with the s8 finale, it seems stupid to keep dragging it on to the point where people get sick of it.And Scrubs isn't Scrubs without JD as the lead. It's a show about him. Even more-than-expected six episodes isn't enough to validate the show for another season.

i'm still stuck on season 8's ending being the best possible finale for this show, it was just brilliant but if they are changing it around a bit its kinda like the old scrubs has ended anyway and we're starting a new show. delighted elliot is gonna be in it 2 so i'm definitely gonna be watching!!!

The fact that Sarah is going to be a part of the show makes me feel a little better about the upcoming season, though I am still iffy on them sticking with the Scrubs title given the complete format change. The S8 finale was a perfect ending in my mind, and I just don't want to see the legacy of the show ruined!
But I have loved Scrubs for a long time, and if it is going to be on I can't see myself not watching, despite the changes being made.

I really wish they would just rename it a spin-off and let the original Scrubs die with a good ending to an overall great tv show.

I agree. S8's ending was perfect for the show and it should stay there.
Let the new scrubs be renamed...Learning to be Scrubs or something (Although that sounds like a bad documentary)
Yes, the new season sounds good....but it just isn't scrubs anymore.
It's like just isn't the same anymore with half the original cast's still good, but it's not the show I fell in love with.

I really think it should have ended withs the season 8 finale. Maybe they should have done a spin-off...or better...a new show. Maybe scrubs-a-like, but to keep delaying a show that's loosing his main's just like when Northern Exposure ended..i'm excited, as always, with the show...but well... we'll see

I think they could've ended it after season 8 - the finale was awe inspringly perfect. But I have faith in them, the show's always been brilliant, and I really like the idea of Turk and Dr Cox becoming med school teachers - it's refreshing, whereas if they'd carried on with the whole junior-docs-at-a-teaching-hospital-idea it would've gotten boring pretty quickly, this way they can write more original stuff.
I'm sooooo psyched. Although I do think that rather than having JD in the first few episodes and disappearing, it would be better if they had him just turn up briefly somehow every once in a while. And @ diezape - this may have the same name, but it really is more of a spin-off if you think about it.
