Braff and Chalke Sign Up for Six Scrubs Episodes

by at . Comments

Even though Scrubs ended as we know it with its tear-jerker season finale last week, it looks like ABC is prepping to bring on a season nine of the show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke have eached signed a six-episode deal.  So if ABC chooses to renew Scrubs for a ninth season, J.D. and Elliot will be back in a limited arrangement to set up the show for a new cast.

Meanwhile, Donald Faison (Turk), John C. McGinley (Cox) and Neil Flynn (Janitor) have all signed deals to continue as series regulars in second position to their new pilots, "The Law," "Back," and "The Middle" respectively.

Judy Reyes has still not signed on to reprise her role as Carla, but perhaps will be around as a guest star.

What do you say, would you be down for a ninth season of Scrubs with limited J.D.?

Check it, I put orange soda in my IV bag, I'm like a hamster yo.

J.D.: Hey, I heard a great joke. A guy walks into a dentist's office and says, "I think I'm a moth." And the dentist says, "Well, if you think you're a moth, why are you at a dentist's office?"
J.D.'s narration: Oh, no, I forgot the punchline... You can't bail out now! Stall! Stall!
J.D.: ...So the moth says "That's a good question. What kind of dentist are you?" And the dentist says, "Well, I'm a general dentist, but I...I do dabble in orthodontry - braces and such." And... and the moth says, "Orthodontry? I hear there's great money in that."
J.D.'s narration: "The light was on"!
J.D.: "But! To answer your original question, which was, if I think I'm a moth, why am I in a dentist's office? The answer is, Because the light was on!" The light! The light, James. Moths love light. So, James, other than your funny bone being broken, what seems to be the problem?
