It’s hard to believe the journey that Scrubs, the once sophomore sitcom on NBC, has gone through. After hanging on for it’s life at NBC and then making the epic leap over to ABC the show is now in it’s 9th season and getting a complete overhaul, including losing 3 stars and adding 4 new ones.
Going into a 9th season meant that Zach Braff, Neil Flynn and Judy Reyes would all be leaving the show, with Braff guest starring in the first few episodes to help ease the transition. With those losses, come a few new additions to the cast. Kerry Bishe will be taking on the role of Lucy, the newest main character, with Michael Mosley taking on the role of Drew, the older, cooler med student. James Franco’s younger brother Dave will also be joining the cast as the cocky Cole.
The show will even be getting a change in location. The new setting won’t be Sacred Heart hospital anymore, but the college campus, where the returning cast joins as professors to the up-and-coming med students. Think of this as the show getting a Saved By The Bell: The New Class makeover.
After the jump, check out an exclusive new scene from the season 9 premiere, which happens on December 1st. In it, Turk and J.D. show that though things may look different around them, their love is still as everlasting.

9 Season’s! WHY?

Because even after eight years and despite some low points (mostly in season six), the show remains one of the best-written, best-acted on television. And unlike Smallville, where it’s just the studio who wants to keep it going, Bill Lawrence is still as passionate about the show as he was on day one.
