Scrubs is an American comedy-drama that premiered on October 2, 2001, on NBC. It was created by Bill Lawrence and is produced currently by ABC Studios (formerly known as Touchstone Television). The show follows the lives of several employees of Sacred Heart, a teaching hospital. It features fast-paced dialogue, slapstick, and surreal vignettes presented mostly as the daydreams of the central character, Dr. John Michael “J.D.” Dorian. The show’s title is a play on surgical scrubs in addition to “scrubs” being slang for the new and inexperienced. During the seventh season, NBC announced that it would not renew the show. Shortly after the seventh season finale, ABC announced that it had bought the rights to the show and on January 6, 2009, the eighth season of Scrubs premiered on ABC. The eighth season finale aired on May 6, 2009. While ABC is in talks with the producers regarding renewal of the show for a ninth season, it is unknown whether the series will continue and how much of the cast will be retained if it does.
