Cast of ‘Scrubs’ Tease A Reunion … On The Big Screen

Creator and showrunner Bill Lawrence, along with part of the cast of Scrubs, recently sat down together for an interview with ATX TV Festival. Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke, Donald Faison, Neil Flynn, and John C. McGinley sat with VarietyTV editor Michael Schneider to discuss life and the possibility of a reboot.

“It can’t be a full season of a show — it would have to be a movie or something like that, where you could only give a couple of months to it,” says Faison, who plays Dr. Chris Turk. “Everyone is doing things.”

Faison elaborates, “I think we all want it. We all would love to work together again. It’s just that it’s really hard.”

Bill Lawrence, who of course plays a major part behind-the-scenes but performs cameos in the series as well, made quite the affirmation.

“We’re gonna do it because we’re lucky enough that people care… Top to bottom, we enjoy spending time with each other. If you ever have an excuse to work with people that you’d want to spend time with anyways, run to it,” he emphatically adds.

Other cast members quip about their friendly relationships with each other, long after Scrubs stopped filming.

So, it seems like a movie version is a total possibility at this point, especially considering how positive the ATX reunion was.

When? We don’t know.

The ATX TV Festival also informed everyone that if they want to watch the entire Scrubs reunion, they can still purchase passes.

“We want to honor those that bought passes with exclusive access. That said, virtual passes are available and content accessible til 6/16,” they posted on Twitter.

Nothing is for sure. Nonetheless, it seems that the public would be ready to watch a reboot. And the cast and crew know this. After all, the show averaged between 3.8 and nearly 16 million viewers per episode during its 9 season-long-run.

The comedy-drama which takes place at Sacred Heart Hospital originally aired on NBC and was passed onto ABC in its later seasons.

And after 182 episodes, it seems like one Scrubs reunion movie isn’t too much to ask.

What do you think?
