In the wake of Thursday's fairy-tale episode of Scrubs, we are finally getting some official insight into the fate of our friends at Sacred Heart.

Zach Braff just sent the following bulletin to his friends on MySpace, and he clarifies that (a) no, that wasn't the series finale, just the final episode on NBC, (b) the series is finishing out its run on ABC and (c) the continuity errors you superfans may have spotted in the fairy-tale ep are because NBC was running the poststrike eps out of order.

Steve McPherson will no doubt provide more details about ABC's Scrubs pickup at tomorrow's presentation, but in the meantime, click in to get the dish direct from Zach!

Subject: Scrubs moves to ABC


Dear friends,

Many of you have been understandably confused by the fairy-tale episode of Scrubs serving as the series finale. It was not. I was not allowed to say it until today, but Scrubs will be moving to ABC for its final season. We are currently filming the eighth and final season. The true finale of the show will air on ABC in the fall. NBC merely promoted the fairy-tale episode as the finale, as it was the last episode they owned.

Also, several of you were very confused by the fact that Dr. Kelso and Laverne were still working at the hospital in the fairy-tale episode. Because of the writer's strike, the last remaining episodes for NBC were aired out of order. This is why Dr. Kelso was still chief of medicine. That was not Laverne, however, for those of you who have been following closely; it was a new nurse "Shirley" who no one thinks looks anything like Laverne except for JD.

Hope this clears some things up.

Peace and love,
