'Scrubs' renewed

Scrubs2 ABC is bringing back "Scrubs."

The comedy will return for a ninth season.

As THR reported yesterday, star Zach Braff closed a deal to come back for six episodes to transition the show to its new set-up, details for which are still being hammered out. Sarah Chalke is expected to return for six episodes. Donald Faison, John C. McGinley and Neil Flynn have closed deals to continue as regulars. Judy Reyes has not been approached, but may guest star.

The show performed pretty modestly on ABC in midseason following its move from NBC, but the series has a built-in fanbase. Shaking up the cast will doubtless shed some of the cost. 

Also: "Better Off Ted" renewed.
