The ninth and final season of the American comedy-drama television series Scrubs, also known as Scrubs: Med School premiered December 1, 2009, on ABC in the United States and consisted of 13 episodes. It ended on March 17, 2010. This season marked a major change in the series; it takes place at a different location and only three of the seven main characters from the first eight seasons remained as regular main characters. The rest of the cast is made up of new recruits, including Lucy, played by Kerry Bishé, who is also the show's new narrator. Former star Zach Braff returned for six episodes of the season.
The new season focuses on students at a med school at the fictional Winston University, rather than interns at a hospital. Doctors Perry Cox and Christopher Turk, played by John C. McGinley and Donald Faison respectively, returned as teachers. The show's filming location moved from the North Hollywood Medical Center to sets at Culver Studios. The series takes place at the new Sacred Heart Hospital, located on the Winston University campus.
The season takes place over a year after the events of the last episode of the eighth season, "My Finale". This one-hour finale was expected to be the last ever episode of Scrubs, and so ended many of the series' long-running storylines. However, Bill Lawrence was approached concerning more episodes, and as a result, the show entered its ninth season.
Review aggregator Metacritic found critical reception to the new format to be 'generally positive' and assigned an average score of 64/100, though reviews were varied, with the Chicago Sun Times calling the season "promising", but USA Today dismissing it as a "deal-driven mistake".The season nonetheless saw Scrubs receive its lowest-ever ratings, with an average of 3.79 million tuning in,down from 5.61 million the previous season (though the show's overall ranking had improved).
Zach Braff announced on March 22, 2010 via Facebook that it appeared that Scrubs wouldn't be renewed for a tenth season.On May 14, 2010, ABC announced the show was cancelled
