The executive producer and former star confirmed that the medical show will actually be canceled this time.
After many attempts to keep it alive, "Scrubs" is a finally a goner. ABC may not have released an official statement yet but the show's executive producer and former star Zach Braff has decided to share the news via his Facebook.
"Many of you have asked, so here it is," Zach wrote, "it appears that 'New Scrubs', 'Scrubs 2.0', 'Scrubs with new kids', 'Scrubbier', 'Scrubs without JD' is no more. It was worth a try, but alas... it didn't work. Zb"
The writers team also posted a message on their Twitter, saying "Whatever happens in the future, we'll let you guys know. Thanks for watching & letting us have the best job in the world (after astronaut)." A moment later they wrote, "ScrubsWriters out!" These indications plus the fact that star Donald Faison has been cast in a CBS pilot "The Odds" lean to the cancellation possibility.
Nevertheless, there's a party who still has hopes for the medical drama. Showrunner Bill Lawrence told E! Online that there has been no official cancellation, saying "we're all just assuming it's over." The status of "Scrubs" is to be determined soon as ABC is expected to make their upfront presentation of the 2010/11 season in May.
