Zach Braff shares photo from ‘Scrubs’ reunion at TV festival

Here's where to tune in...

The creator of Scrubs was forced to deny rumours that the show could return once more, after the cast members reunited for a one-off appearance yesterday.

Zach Braff, who portrayed JD in the medical sitcom, announced the reunion on Twitter by posting a promotional image of the Sacred Heart gang. See the photo below.

Braff joined his former castmates Sarah Chalke (Elliot), Donald Faison (Turk), John C McGinley (Dr Cox), Judy Reyes (Carla), and Neil Flynn (The Janitor) at the Vulture Fest event in Los Angeles.


However, it seems like there won’t be a small screen return for the show anytime soon.

“I would do anything to get to work with not only this group [but the entire crew]… it was the best time in my life. ‘[But] sometimes reboots — not all the time — feel like a money grab”, said writer Bill Lawrence at the event.

Lawrence added: “If we ever do it, we’ll do it as a short little movie or something else. I think the problem from me is I would just want to see where everyone is. I would want to see where their marriages are [as opposed to a huge event].”

Last year, a mini-reunion took place when Braff was pictured with Chalke and Scott Foley (Sean).


Scrubs' Janitor

Scrubs ran for nine seasons from 2001-2010. Earlier this year, the cast teased that the show could return in the form of a one-off TV feature-length.

“I don’t think we’d do a traditional TV show thing, but I think [the cast] daydream about the idea of doing, like, a TV movie,” Braff said.

“That’s something that feels more realistic. Because everyone is so all over the place… I don’t think we’d want to do a revival of the show, but I think what’s more realistic and feasible would be to do sort of a – like Psych did a two-hour movie.”

He added: “I think that would be something we could all do. I mean, I would.”

Sarah Chalke was also keen on the idea, saying: “Would I do a Scrubs reunion movie? Hell yes, I would!”
