Scrubs: ABC TV Show Cancelled, No Season 10

ScrubsAfter seasons of poor ratings and several cast members moving on, ABC has finally put the Scrubs TV show to rest.

Scrubs follows hospital life as seen through the eyes of Dr. J.D. Dorian (Zach Braff). He left Sacred Heart last season but returns occasionally to help teach a new crop of med students. Others in the cast include Donald Faison, John C. McGinley, Ken Jenkins, Sarah Chalke, Eliza Coupe, Kerry Bishe, Michael Mosley, and Dave Franco.

Last May, despite poor ratings, ABC decided to try to squeeze one more year out of the veteran sitcom. The reason? ABC also produces Scrubs and stood to make big money on additional episodes in syndication.

The network kicked off season nine late last year and registered a low 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 4.5 million viewers. The numbers dropped even further and ABC decided to burn off most of the remaining episodes in January.

In March, ABC aired the final episode of the season. The network’s website promoted it as the “series finale.” We contacted a representative for ABC who told us that it was a mistake but nobody was in any rush to change it.

Now, it appears that ABC has finally cancelled Scrubs after nine seasons on the air. With more than 180 episodes, the sitcom won’t be coming back.

What do you think? Should Scrubs have returned after last season’s Braff send off? Did you like the “med school” setting and characters?

    I’ve been watching scrubs for a very long time, my best friend introduced it to me. It is probably, no scratch that, it is definitely my absolute favorite show. Jd and Turk relate so much to my friend and I. This show has so many life lessons, and is inspiring! It’s hilarious and serious when needed. It’s like no other show, and nothing will compare! I’m extremely sad to know that scrubs ended the way it did, no season finale or anything! Honestly, when I started to watch med school, at first I was disappointed, and as I kept going through the episodes, I began to love it! Please bring this show back, there are so many people that watch this show, you can’t end it yet.

    I think Scrubs is one of the best shows ever aired. Sure no one expected season 9 to be that different but as the episodes progressed the things we loved about the show came back with the new characters. The finale was absolutely no finale at all. The show deserves a decent ending, fans deserve to see how everyone turns out :) Come on ABC bring Scrubs back!

    I think Scrubs is absolutely brilliant, I think its unfair how it has been ended at such a crucial part, for instance Elliot is finally going to have the baby she wanted (I think seeing Elliot in labour would of been fab!!) Also the new members that joined was like seeing JD and the gang all over again but in a slightly different way. Please bring back Scrubs

  8. BRING BACK SCRUBS!!! says

    Season 9 wasn’t as good as the others but I really started to like it and then they canceled it! This is the best show ever!!! And they should bring it back!!! I love this show, I have seen every season at least 3 or 4 times and own all of them on DVD and I have only been watching it for about 2 years, it is the best!!! The fans deserve a ending and they can’t do this!!!!!! When I found out they stopped making it I was so sad!! BRING BACK SCRUBS!!!!!
