Scrubs returns to NBC next week to begin airing new episodes for the remainder of season 7.  The fresh installment kicks off on April 10, four months after the show aired its last episode on December 6, 2007 and went on hiatus due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike.

“My Bad Too,” the episode which marks the comeback of the medical professionals at Sacred Heart, follows Carla (Judy Reyes) and Turk (Donald Faison) as they attempt to get each other the perfect gift for their first date anniversary.  Turk decides to learn Spanish, although he soon realizes that being bilingual can only work to his advantage. J.D. (Zach Braff), on the other hand, struggles with a patient's request, while Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) starts a game of thievery with Dr. Kelso's (Ken Jenkins) breakfast.  The Janitor (Neil Flynn), and Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke) also return for this installment.

Meanwhile, NBC has already confirmed on Wednesday that Scrubs will end its seventh season run on the network in May.  Although as expected, the show is not likely to go away for good given that speculations have already surfaced that Scrubs will end up on rival network ABC for the next season.

"If they [Scrubs] can go 1-for-21, good for them," NBC boss Ben Silverman said, referring to ABC's less-than-stellar recent record at developing comedy hits.

As reported previously, ABC Studios and Scrubs are presently in serious negotiations that would enable the network to place an additional 18-episode order for an eighth season of the show. According to TV Guide, the deal for the 18 episodes is close to being official, but fans shouldn't expect any kind of Scrubs announcement any time soon as the network may wait until the official ABC upfront in New York City in May.
