Scrubs: Which Character Will Cross Over to ABC’s Cougar Town?

Ted Buckland on ScrubsScrubs may have gone to the cancellation graveyard but one of the sitcom’s regular characters may be returning to ABC — for one night.

TVLine reports that actor Sam Lloyd will very likely be reprising his role as attorney Ted Buckland for the season finale of Cougar Town. The characters of the Courteney Cox sitcom take a trip to Hawaii to help Travis through some sort of crisis and while there, they run into dim-witted Ted.

When we last saw Ted on Scrubs, he and his girlfriend, singer Stephanie Gooch (Kate Micucci), were traveling around the country together. Perhaps they’ve split-up, settled in Hawaii, or are just passing through? We’ll have to wait to find out the details.

Bill Lawrence, the executive producer of Cougar Town, has used Scrubs actors on the series before but this will mark the first time that he’s brought back an actual character from Sacred Heart. Cougar Town is expected to return to ABC on April 18th and the season finale will likely air on May 25th. The sitcom’s already been renewed for a third season.

What do you think? Are you excited to see poor Ted Buckland again? What other Scrubs characters would you like to see pop up on Cougar Town?

They can’t go wrong here. Scrubs was GREAT. Cougar Town is FABULOUS. The only thing that’d make it better would be to bring both casts together regularly. But I’m looking forward to, at least, seeing ‘Ted’ again. -He is such a brilliant character actor! Thanks CT!!!!

His Girlfriend in Scrubs is now in a small part of “Rasing Hope” now… She could be in Cougar Town but guess she wont be…

April 18th is a Monday and May 25th is a Wednesday. What gives?

@AuntieD: I believe 4/18 is a special airing that follows Dancing with the Stars. The show returns to the Wednesday night timeslot on 4/20.

In addition to Ted, it would be fun to see Dr. Cox since he was in a relationship with Christa Miller on Scrubs.
