J.D.! Turk! We missed you so.

ATX Television Festival announced Thursday that its ninth annual event, set for June 4-7, will feature a reunion for beloved NBC comedy “Scrubs.” Creator Bill Lawrence will be joined in Austin by cast members Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, John C. McGinley, Judy Reyes, Neil Flynn and Christa Miller for a reunion panel, taking place 10 years after the series finale.

The festival will also host a reunion for one of Lawrence’s other sitcoms, “Cougar Town.” Joining the party for that show will be co-creator by Kevin Biegel and cast members Miller, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Brian Van Holt and Robert Clendenin. (No Courteney Cox, sorry.)

Other highlights announced this week (panelists will be announced for all at a later date):

• A screening of Comedy Central’s (truly excellent, go watch it now, yes now) “The Other Two,” followed by a Q&A with cast and creatives

• A panel for the CW’s “Nancy Drew”

• A panel for TBS comedy show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” with the series’ staff discussing “the process of blending current events and comedy to produce a weekly, late-night news satire show in an era of particularly charged politics”

• A conversation about Comedy Central’s Drunk History” with creator, executive producer, host and actor Derek Waters
