'Scrubs' returns Dec. 1

mcginley-faison-braff.jpgThe retooled version of ABC's "Scrubs" will be back making rounds come December, according to the Scrubs Writers Twitter feed:

 "Tuesday December 1st: the premiere date for #scrubs9 Tell your friends!"

"Did we say Scrubs is returning on ABC Tuesday December 1st? Cause it is."

The "Scrubs" of the past is no more. Gone are the days focused on Sacred Heart hospital. The revamped version of the popular series is focusing now on a medical school setting. The only original stars returning as regulars are Donald Faison (Turk) and John C. McGinley (Dr. Cox).

They will be joined by newcomers Eliza Coupe, Michael Mosley, Kerry Bishe and Dave Franco. Zach Braff (JD Dorian) is also scheduled to appear in several episodes.

The two-part, one-0hour premiere will air beginning at 9 p.m. ET on Dec. 1. Once "Better Off Ted" returns the following week on Dec. 8, "Scrubs" will occupy only the 9-9:30 time slot.
