In real life, Sarah Chalke is pregnant.
When Scrubs returns for a new season, the same will be said for her character Elliot.
Chalke confirmed this week that her pregnancy has been written into the sitcom's ninth season.
"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 told Hollywood 411. "[Producer Bill Lawrence] l 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."
As previously reported, major changes are in store on Scrubs.
It will return in January with a new cast of medical school students, as Zach Braff is on board for the first six episodes; and John C. McGinley and Donald Faison will be series regulars on which the show focuses.
Hey, as long as the same funny Scrubs quotes are there, we're in!
