The cast of ‘Scrubs’ would like to reunite on screen


An audience member asked the band what they imagined their characters would be up to now at the end of a Scrubs reunion panel at the ATX TV Festival on Sunday. “You’re asking me to write the reboot right before your eyes!” exclaimed series creator Bill Lawrence, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, John C. McGinley, Judy Reyes and Neil Flynn starred in the show, and Lawrence shared some of his favorite NBC/ABC comedy moments from 2001-2010. and the creators have remained close in the decade since the series ended. Braff and Faison even host a retrospective podcast called Fake Doctors, the “Real Friends” discussion of a reunion or on-screen sequel was inevitable. “We’re going to do it, you know,” Lawrence said. Although it should be noted that there is no formal arrangement of any kind. The Ted Lasso co-creator added that “If you ever have an excuse to work with people you want to hang out with anyway, run to it.”

Nonetheless, with everyone on stage having very busy careers, the 10th season of Scrubs isn’t likely to happen very soon. “We all want to work together again, but it wouldn’t be a full season,” Faison remarked, “Maybe a movie, something we could do in two months.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Sacred Heart” team also noted that Scrubs was an early adopter of combining drama and comedy, starting with the show’s fourth episode, “My Old Lady”, which was airing on broadcast networks at the time. Three patients are treated by young doctors John Dorian (Braff), Elliot Reid (Chalke), and Chris Turk (Faison) in the episode, and all three die. When Lawrence pitched the concept to NBC, the network wondered if all three patients should die.

“I suggested it wasn’t me [forecasting one of the show’s defining components], but just be smart. “If we dim the lights and play an independent song, it can work,” Lawrence added. (ANI)
