Zach Braff, the actor who plays Doctor John 'JD' Dorian in the popular medical comedy Scrubs is leaving the show at the end of the eighth season. Braff did leave the door open to returning as a guest star or possibly a director.
Both creator Bill Lawrence and ABC spokesman Stephen McPherson claim there is a future for Scrubs beyond the departure of the character whose voiceover has been a huge part of the show.
"The end of the show will be about JD leaving the hospital. When you leave, it's about holding on to your relationships... You can't kill this show," said Lawrence.
