‘Scrubs’ Finale Won’t Leave Viewers In The Dark

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Scrubs is finally coming to an end, but creator Bill Lawrence promises not to leave fans in the dark.

Lawrence insists he has no plans on ending Scrubs’ seven-season run with a controversial or confusing blackout scene, like The Sopranos series finale did this past June.

Lawrence says, “The Sopranos earned the right to end their series that way, but Scrubs is different and that’s not our style. We want to leave our fans satisfied with our ending.”

To tie up any lose Scrubs ends, Lawrence promises to make Zach Braff’s character a “little more mature” so audiences don’t feel robbed.

He says, “I don’t want our viewers to be like, ‘Hey guys, J.D. [Braff] is 31 and still wears T- shirts with cartoons on them.’ It’ll be unsatisfying if viewers feel like J.D. hasn’t grown up at all.”

And Lawrence also plans on making good on a promise he made to actor Neil Flynn, who plays the mischievous Janitor.

Lawrence explains, “I promised Neil Flynn that by the end, The Janitor would have two things: a job, and a girlfriend. He’s the only one that hasn’t had an on-screen romance. It’s about time!”

The series finale of Scrubs airs May 2008 on NBC.
