Now that Scrubs was picked up for another season, will Sarah Chalke be returning as Dr. Elliot Reid?
Christina Shumaker, South Burlington, Vt.

"I’m a romantic at heart, and I always thought J.D. (actor Zach Braff) and Elliot should end up together," says Chalke, 32, of the show’s season-eight finale. But before she can answer your question, she needs to find out if her Lifetime TV miniseries, Maneater, will become a full series. She most likely will return to Scrubs for several episodes in the upcoming ninth season, but adds, "I don’t really know what’s going to happen, but it’s so exciting that it’s going to go another year. For all of us, it was such a gift that we even got to do an eighth. After the writers’ strike, to get to come back and do a proper finale was really cool."
