Zach Braff talks possibility of ‘Scrubs’ returning

Medical sitcom aired for nine seasons from 2001 to 2010

Scrubs star Zach Braff has discussed the possibility of the cult show returning, giving hope to fans.

The medical sitcom aired for nine seasons from 2001 to 2010, starring Braff as JD, alongside co-stars Sarah Chalke, Donald Faison, Neil Flynn, Ken Jenkins, John C McGinley and Judy Reyes.

Hosting a Twitter Q&A recently, Braff was asked about the show returning in the future, to which he said: “You never know, it’s something we all talk about.”


The actor went on to express “jealousy” for recent reunion shows, such as Gilmore Girls. “I’m very jealous of all this Gilmore Girls attention, and Full House, so we talk about it every now and then,” he added.

“So you never know. It could happen. I’d do it.”

Following reports that he had “pretty much confirmed” the return of Scrubs, Braff tweeted: “No he didn’t. Or did he…” See that tweet beneath.

Braff is reportedly working on a new film, black comedy Bump. Written by Ori Guendelman and Rob McClelland, the film centres around a young lawyer, whose life is derailed when he’s involved in an accidental hit-and-run; he then spends the night attempting to dispose of the corpse. The script was one of last year’s best unproduced screenplays on the Black List.

Braff just wrapped helming Going In Style, the Warner Bros remake that stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin, with the studio releasing the film April 7, 2017. It was the former Scrubs star’s first film as director since 2004’s Garden State.
