The creator of new comedy Cougar Town is planning to bring at least one character from Scrubs to the show’s second season.

Bill Lawrence, who worked on Scrubs prior to the creation of Cougar Town, has confirmed at least one Scrubs cast member will appear on the upcoming season.

“I promise you either Sarah Chalke, Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, Donald Faison or Judy Reyes will be on the show this year,” Lawrence told E!.

A reunion between current Cougar Town actress Christa Miller and Scrubs star John C. McGinley, who played husband and wife Jordan and Perry on Scrubs, is a possibility with Lawrence saying “I think enough time has past that they’re not husband and wife anymore”.

While remaining tight-lipped about exactly who will appear, Lawrence hopes several of the former Scrubs cast members will take up his offer to appear.

However, he has ruled out Neil Flynn, who played the Janitor, after the actor took up a job on new comedy The Middle.

“Neil Flynn … betrayed me and took another job on the same network,” Lawrence joked.

Saving lives isn’t always serious business! Having survived his own medical training, J.D Dorian (Braff) is now charged with the task of mentoring a whole new crop of interns. He may look like he’s at the top of his game but Dorian continues to navigate personal and professional obstacles in addition to taking on his arch-nemesis, the hospital janitor (Neil Flynn). Helping J.D. along the way is Dr. Chris Turk (Donald Faison) and his no-nonsense wife, head nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes), the beautiful but socially awkward Dr. Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke) and the obnoxious Dr. Perry Cox (John C. McGinley). Former Chief of Medicine Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins) now keeps a watchful eye on the staff from his post at the coffee shop making way for new Chief Dr. Maddox, guest star Courtney Cox.

Laughter is truly the best medicine! In the premiere episode, “My Jerks”, Dr. Kelso’s beautiful but unethical replacement, Dr. Maddox (Courteney Cox), shakes things up at Sacred Heart, while J.D. struggles to manage a new crop of incompetent interns and Carla helps Elliott put her ego in check. On the second episode “My Last Words”, J.D. and Turk set aside their decade-long steak night tradition to comfort a dying patient, while Dr. Maddox begins to show her true colors.

Patients aren’t the only ones who need looking after! Get your funny bone in check with Zach Braff and the cast of Scrubs, starting Tuesday, January 6 on Citytv.

Dr. Cox recounts his tough day at the hospital to his son through an imaginative fairy tale. When Princess Eliot’s handmaiden falls ill at the hands of an unknown monster, the Village Idiot is summoned to help rescue her. But with the Dark Lord standing in their way, the duo can’t do it alone. The Giant keeps an eye out for the heroes while the two-headed Turla lends some magic, but it’s the brave knight in shining armor — storyteller — Dr. Cox that lends them the knowledge that may save the day.

Dr. Cox gets a visit from one of his recurring patients, but can’t seem to diagnose his problem. J.D. and Turk see this as an opportunity to show up Dr. Cox, and set out to find exactly what is hindering the patient. Meanwhile, after Elliott spilled the beans on exactly how old Dr. Kelso really is, she teams up with Carla to try and convince the board to not force him into retirement. Dr. Kelso, troubled by the news, finds a young doctor and reflects on his time at the hospital.

J.D. becomes scared that he is not masculine enough to set an example for his son, especially after Dr. Cox gives him a hard time about being a whiny man-child. Meanwhile, after a necessary surgery leaves him feeling less manly, Turk overcompensates by fighting anybody that tries to take over the break room remote. Elsewhere, the Janitor starts a hospital newspaper entitled, The Janitorial, after Dr. Kelso tells the Janitor that no one pays attention to anything he says. His main article makes life a nightmare for Dr. Cox.

8 p.m.

It is the anniversary of Carla and Turk’s first date, and both work on getting each other the perfect gift. When Turk decides to learn Spanish, he soon realizes that being bilingual can only work to his advantage. Meanwhile, J.D. is torn about whether he should allow one of his patients, a burn victim, to attend his graduation and turns to Elliot for advice. Elsewhere, Dr. Cox begins a game of thievery with Dr. Kelso’s breakfast.

Fans of Scrubs who have been left in the dark about the status of J.D and Elliot after their season-ending break-up have to get ready for this… an unnamed source has confirmed that the seventh season will begin with a Wedding!

What does this mean for J.D. and Elliot? What about Kim’s place in the relationship? Or could it possibly be another character??
