With just one more episode left in its arsenal, Scrubs 2.0 appears to be winding down, but is it really, truly ending this time around? At first we were skeptical about its season-nine revival--the whole notion of an entirely new cast and Zach Braff-less episodes left us scratching our heads--but it ended up being a hilarious twist on the original and we instantly fell in love. But now that show staples like Donald Faison and Sarah Chalke have booked other pilots, it's time to consider that tough question once again: Is Scrubs finally saying sayonara? If show mastermind Bill Lawrence has his way, "Scrubs is going to be on forever"... Sadly, Scrubers, while Bill is hopeful for a lifelong run of our favorite funny docs, it's highly unlikely at this point. "In my heart and head I felt like Scrubs ended last year," Bill told us before the Cougar Town panel at the Paley TV Festival. "This year was a bit of a spinoff, but I really liked it, I liked what they did. They worked really hard." Having said that, the brilliant brain behind the long-running series is anticipating its end. "I'm always very honest," Bill said. "I say it's a one in 10 chance that it's going to be on after the next two weeks." Sigh. So what's next? Aside from Cougar Town (which we highly recommend you watch after Modern Family on Wednesdays), Bill has big plans for Scrubs. "Scrubs is going to be on forever. We'll come do it at our garage," he teased. "For anybody that's a huge fan, I'm still going to be doing it in my backyard at least once or twice a week, if they want to come." We tried to pry an address out of him, but Bill kept mum. What a tease! Are you sad to see Scrubs coming to an end? Are you already aboard the Bill Lawrence train and tuning in to Cougar Town? Let us know below, and don't miss what looks to be the final episode of Scrubs Wednesday, March 17, at 8 p.m. on ABC. Read More: E!Online - Is Scrubs Officially Dunzo?

Even though Scrubs won't be back until March, our sources have provided us with some Dave Franco news to tide us over. There may be some who don't like how he's played out on the ABC comedy, but it looks like he's going to hit it big sometime soon. At least, that's what Details magazine believes. Young actor Dave Franco has been chosen as one of seven celebrities who could be next big things in the entertainment industry. He's been named part of "The Next Generation of Hollywood's Leading Men," which definitely is an honor for this young star. We recently reported that this 24-year-old Scrubs star has landed a pretty sweet photo shoot with the clothing line "Band of Outsiders." Still, there are more projects in store for Dave Franco. One day, you may even forget his role as actor James Franco's little brother. Even he wants that to drop that. To Read More Click Here .
Donald Faison is trading his hospital scrubs for a police badge. The Scrubs alum has been cast in the CBS pilot The Odds, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Faison will play the show's lead homicide detective. The cop series, set in Las Vegas, comes from Joel Silver (Moonlight) and Jeff Wadlow (The Tower of Babble). Reps for Scrubs told TVGuide.com that Faison's casting will not affect this season since production has concluded. The Bill Lawrence-produced series will not know until May if it will be picked up for another season. Faison was attached to a pilot last year and still made his way back to the ABC series.

It's been a Scrubs -less February for us fans, and it still looks even bleaker when March comes. There are only two episodes left this season, but there doesn't seem to be any decision regarding the fate of the re-imagined series. The Futon Critic reports that ABC has already confirmed the schedule for Scrubs [Med School]'s return. They've been putting off airing the last two installments since January, and have only recently announced the upcoming schedule for them. Scrubs will be returning on March 10 at 8pm with "Our Driving Issues," and again on the Wednesday after (that's March 17) with the season finale "Our Thanks." The network announced last month that they planned to move the show to Comedy Wednesdays, hoping to give it better ratings that way. Since it didn't push through then, they opted to skip a whole month before bringing it back. Not exactly a wise decision for the network though. It looks as though ABC doesn't have much faith in the series at all. Even the show's creator Bill Lawrence is uncertain about its fate. He recently posted the aforementioned episode schedules on his Twitter account, and deleted the whole update a while later. It seems like he's just banking on his other show, Cougar Town, to stay in business. Still, knowing how much of a survivor Scrubs is, we're still hoping for another season. Granted, there are flaws to the show and all, but it definitely offers characters we'd like to know more. We could let Lucy (Kerry Bishe) continue to learn the ropes, and watch the inevitable ups and downs of romance via Drew and Denise. There's still plenty to tell when it comes to this comedy. After all, Zach Braff wasn't the only one we were rooting for when this series first aired. Besides, Scrubs is the show that just won't die. Adding to the past troubles it endured is this whole month of onscreen absence. Ever immortal, this Bill Lawrence baby surely has the capability to live on, and if it doesn't, we're okay with it. Really. Source Here
Let's take a break from the revamped Scrubs and recall some bits of the old, wading through eight seasons' worth of memories. One of these recollections will probably be about Ted's band, which might've had more luck in the music industry if their lead didn't sweat so much. Lucky for us, the actor who plays him isn't as panicky, and he really has brought the a cappella quartet to life. Well, Ted's Band aka The Worthless Peons has actually existed even before Scrubs. They're actually called The Blanks, and they recently talked to Boston.com about their recent ventures. These include releasing their debut album "Riding the Wave" and touring cities for performances. Asked about their appearance on the ABC comedy, actor Sam Lloyd revealed just how far they managed to take it. Initially, they didn't believe they'd make it big in the business. Now though, most Scrubs fans know them well and can even belt out some of their tunes. "We kind of thought there wouldn't be much interest in it," the actor explained. "So we didn't really pursue it. We had our CD out, and then a manager got in touch with us through our website and he said he thought he could get us work and we said, "Well, good luck with that.'' And he did!" Since then, things have looked up for the band. "[I]t was kind of shocking. We were put on "Scrubs as a gag for just that reason, so that Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) could say, "This is ear rape! So when it suddenly started getting hip it was pretty phenomenal." The band consists of Sam Lloyd, Philip McNiven, George Miserlis, and Paul F. Perry, and have recently launched their debut album. "Riding the Wave" is sold at CD Baby, and features several original compositions and cover versions of songs. There are also a number of candid recordings from the Scrubs cast and crew. Even though the new Scrubs remains in limbo regarding its status on television, we're glad to see a bit of the old thanks to Ted. Even though they won't be appearing on the show anymore, there still is hope for Ted's Band aka The Worthless Peons aka The Blanks. Lloyd joked, "I think we're going to be Top 40 pretty soon. We're huge right now, I can't tell you, it's sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll for us right now - a cappella roll." Source Here
Sarah Chalke is heading to Capitol Hill. The Scrubs actress, 33, has been cast in the new ABC pilot Freshman as a young congresswoman, Variety reports. Chalke will play a newly elected U.S. representative who, despite professional success, has little luck in love. Freshman follows a group of politicos who live together. The comedy is executive-produced by political blogger Arianna Huffington and Greg Malins, whose resume includes Friends , Will & Grace and How I Met Your Mother . Source Here
Tonight we're getting a Scrubs surprise, because the network has decided to air yet another episode after yesterday's comic installment. It's all because the series has been bumped to Wednesdays, joining the ABC comedy line-up at last. While it seems like an odd move for the network to make, it's probably because of scheduling conflicts. That, and the ratings needed by the show. Scrubs hasn't been performing that well, even though this revamped version isn't that bad at all. Here's the ABC promo for the move to Wednesdays. Source & Preview
