If you’re anything like this TV Addict, Thursday’s SCRUBS ‘finale’ on NBC had you scratching your head for not one, but two reasons. First and foremost, the SCRUBS team forgot the funny. And secondly, when did Kelso return to Sacred Heart and why was Laverne alive? Well, here’s the answers courtesy of star Zach Braff.
Many of you have been understandably confused by the Fairy Tale episode of Scrubs serving as the series finale. It was not. I was not allowed to say it until today, but Scrubs will be moving to ABC for its final season. We are currently filming the 8th and final season. The true finale of the show will air on ABC in the fall. NBC merely promoted the Fairy Tale episode as the finale, as it was the last episode they owned.
Also, several of you were very confused by the fact that Dr. Kelso and Laverne were still working at the hospital in the Fairy Tale episode. Because of the writer’s strike, the last remaining episodes for NBC were aired out of order. This is why Dr. Kelso was still chief of medicine. That was not Laverne however, for those of you who have been following closely; it was a new nurse “Shirley” who no one thinks looks anything like Laverne except for JD.
Hope this clears some things up.
peace and love,
