Zach Braff tells fans that zombie “Scrubs” is dead; Nearly 2,000 approve


It’s all over for “Scrubs.” Almost.

Zach Braff just confirmed the news over his Facebook account — and so far 1,664 fans have said they “like” this announcement. (A reminder that Facebook’s “like” function is a little strange. Unless Braff’s fans are truly cheering the show’s retirement.)

He writes:

Many of you have asked, so here it is: 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

ABC still isn’t confirming the show’s official end. But c’mon. It’s all but over. Actually, it was over last year, when original “Scrubs” ended its run. This year’s semi-spinoff, which focused on a new crop of medical interns, never took off with fans. Even Zach Braff’s brief return felt out of place.

As a result, watching “Scrubs” this season was sort of like returning to your high school a year or two after graduation. You still remember some of the people, while there are other faces you don’t recognize. (Online, several folks took to calling the show “Zombie Scrubs.”) It’s a weird mix of feeling familiar yet out of place. Sometimes, you can’t go back. And “Scrubs” probably shouldn’t have. 

The original “Scrubs” probably still hasn’t gotten enough due respect as one of the better comedies of the 2000s. But it was, and offered enough laughs that I stuck with the show throughout its entire run.
