Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence refused to write a pre-strike back up that would serve as a series finale if the writers' strike goes on for a prolonged amount of time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lawrence instead decided to write the scripts as he normally would have.
NBC requested that Lawrence write a scene that would show "two people kissing." This would have served as an emergency series finale. Instead, Lawrence is going to write the real finale after the writers' strike ends, and will most likely have to battle with the network to show it. He stated, "I will use all my leverage to end this show properly, even if it means I have to do all the voices myself and call people up to read it over the phone."
Seven of the eighteen episodes for Scrubs's finale season have been written. The show could be forced into reruns as early as January.
