>'Scrubs' shocker: School's in, hospital's out!

Jun 19, 2009, 06:00 PM | by Michael Ausiello

Scrubs boss Bill Lawrence said his cancellation-defying comedy would undergo an extreme makeover in its ninth season, and, man, he wasn't kidding. When the show returns next winter, the action will shift from the hospital to the classroom and make med-school professors of John C. McGinley's Dr. Cox and Donald Faison's Turk.

"It'll be a lot like Paper Chase as a comedy," Lawrence tells me. "It's going to be a different show. It'll still be life-and-death stakes, but if the show is just Scrubs again in the hospital with a different person's voiceover, it would be a disaster and people would be mad."

Of course, Sacred Heart won't go away altogether. Although J.D.'s old stomping ground no longer will serve as the show's base of operations, the students will occasionally rotate through its halls -- and bump into many of its familiar faces. In addition to McGinley and Faison, both of whom are expected to be full-time regulars alongside a quartet of newbies (most of them playing students), Scrubs vets Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke, Judy Reyes and Ken Jenkins have agreed to make guest appearances. (Neil Flynn has a costarring role as Patricia Heaton's husband in the new ABC sitcom The Middle, so his name-challenged Janitor will be MIA.)

"Med students in their first three years have to spend anywhere from 10 to 50 percent of their time at a hospital," Lawrence explains. "And that's when you'll see some of the (original cast members). Continuity-wise, Sacred Heart will still exist with those people still working there."

But Lawrence insists "half the cast, if not 60 percent of it," will be comprised of freshmen, one of which will be more recognizable than the rest. "(ABC) is really after us to hire a big name," he reveals. "So one of them will be fairly famous."

we all woulda been pissed if it was the same old scrubs but with a whole new cast.

now, they get to explore all new fresh areas of comedy, with familiar faces (mcginley and faison being two of the best scrubs characters/actors anyway) and a whole crew of staffers get to keep their jobs.

if Scrubs had to go on, im glad its going on in a new way.

I'm glad they reinvented a bit... hopefully they hired better writers than whoever they had for the last few seasons.

that show started out so strong but ended so very badly.

A show about the wife from Everybody Loves Raymond living in Indiana with a bunch of kids? That shit looks terrible.

Then again, ABC still shows According to Jim, so maybe it'll be a big success.

they picked a good two (best choice obviously would have been Sam Lloyd and Neil Flynn. . . but ABC wouldn't put on Legal Custodians).

Go out with some dignity? This reminds me of when Facts of Life turned from a gourmet food shop to a spencers-like gift shop. Or when Different Strokes added the cute new white kid and the new wife. Or Valerie turned into Valrie's Family to the Hogan Family. Any other examples?

And turning the show into "Saved By The Bell"

or the complete revamp they gave to that show "Jessie".

Scrubs is a show that's run its course. The others were just getting started or were trying to rejigger the concept to make a better show.

They should have just waited a year or two, really gotten their shit together and created a spinoff ala Frasier.
