Writer Josh Bycel has signed on as executive producer for ABC’s “Scrubs,” Daily Variety reports.

Bycel will also be a showrunner with show creator Bill Lawrence, who will be busy also working on the new series “Cougar Town.”

“Scrubs” returns for its ninth season in the fall and will likely focus on Donald Faison’s and John C. McGinley’s characters as they begin roles at a medical school.

Bycel also steps in an executive producer after Garrett Donovan and Neil Goldman left the series to work on NBC’s new show “Community.”
