Talks are rive on the good chance "Scrubs" will get for a ninth season pick-up, although nothing has been set in stone yet. Moreover, original cast Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke are reportedly on board for at least six transitional episodes that may change its direction from single camera to multi-camera approach.

Others reportedly billed to return are John C. McGinley, Donald Faison and Neil Flynn. However, the three actors' participation in the series will depend on whether or not their other pilots are being picked next week. Faison and Flynn are both involved in ABC's "The Law" while McGinley is tied to CBS' "Back".

The news of "Scrubs" being renewed was first reported by Variety which also informed on the development of another ABC comedy "Samantha Who?". The sitcom starring Christina Applegate was on the verge of getting canceled due to low rating but the execs are figuring out a way to cut the budget.

According to "insiders", the execs would like to shoot the show in the similar way "How I Met Your Mother" is, soundstage with multiple cameras over the course of 4 days and without audience. This move is believed to save them up to $500,000.

ABC is expected to announce its series pickups in the coming weeks.

Well I like Zach Braff & sarah chalke, I wish they would stay on I've always watched it for their on/off relationship as well as zach's & dr cox's... I think if they brought a similar person to play a similar role as zach... They would have to change some things like, his friends/mentor... & make dr cox kinda take kelso's place as a chief of med. (In his own way) just kinda start over... Maybe have zach mentor a good intern and he eventually takes his role... Idk...

I'm in a serious quandry about a 9th season. I really want to see what happens between Ted and The Gooch. The way I see Scrubs is that is an ensemble cast, but according to Bill Lawerence, it was always to be told from J.D.'s perspective. Reading elsewhere about the a ninth season, the suits at ABC want to shift it from the people to the hospital. A rotating cast. And we all know how that worked out for "E.R." in the end.

why do you want it to be cancelled? i'm a huge fan of [scrubs] and i want it to continue more than ever. also, i love "how i met your mother" which is an excellent tv series, great characters and screenplay. and if scrubs will be filmed using the same techniques as HIMYM, only good thing can happen:) eaaaglee:)
