Zach Braff: 'Scrubs' is ending

Posts on Facebook; ABC says there's no official decision

Is "Scrubs" finally a goner?

According to star Zach Braff, the long-running comedy is finished.

After nine seasons and two networks, Braff says the ABC series won't return next year. Posting on Facebook, Braff said to fans: "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"

Braff starred in only a handful of episodes this season, which attempted to reboot the show by adding some younger cast members.

An ABC rep says the network hasn't made an official decision. Given the program's weak ratings this year, a return does seem unlikely, especially given ABC's comedy success with its Wednesday block led by "Modern Family."
