They’re all in! More than a decade after wrapping up their time on Scrubs, the cast continues to be invested in a return.
In June 2022, the cast and crew reunited at an ATX competition panel to focus on the legacy of the sequence. Creator and showrunner Bill Lawrence was joined by Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, John C. McGinley, Judy Reyes and Neil Flynn as they mirrored on their time filming the comedy present about staff at a hospital.
The sequence ran for 9 seasons from 2001 to 2010. After debuting on NBC, Scrubs later moved to ABC for its two last installments. For the cast, the thought of coming again to reprise their roles has been on everybody’s thoughts over the years.
“I think we all want it. We all would love to work together again. It’s just that it’s really hard,” Faison, who performed Turk, defined throughout the panel. “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. Everyone is doing things.”
At the time, the group additionally praised Faison and Braff’s podcast “Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald” which was impressed by their time on the present. “Because of that podcast, my kids started watching Scrubs,” Reyes who portrayed Carla Espinosa, Turk’s spouse, shared. She joked that her youngsters take pleasure in scenes along with her coworkers the most.
The podcast, which premiered in March 2020, adopted Faison and Braff — who starred as J.D. — as they rewatched episodes of the present and shared behind-the-scenes particulars.
“We can just kind of go wherever we want. Sometimes we end up talking about the episode more, sometimes we barely do. When we started, I don’t think we knew what It was gonna be, but as it’s become more and more popular, we were just like, ‘Well, let’s not fix anything that’s not broken,’” the New Jersey native instructed E! News in September 2020 about the project. “Let’s just keep doing what people are responding to, which is basically just the four of us sitting around shooting the s—t.”
Braff added: “I think one of the reasons this is working is that I think people are really isolated right now. And this is like a little mini silly club, and it’s free.”
Faison, for his half, identified that his favourite a part of trying again is remembering what was happening at the time.
“We have some people come on that want to ask straight up about certain scenes and certain episodes, but it’s always fun to have somebody that wants to know what we were doing while making the show,” the Clueless star added. “To take what Will Smith says in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, our lives got flipped, turned upside down by the show at this point. By this moment in season two, we were a bona fide hit. We were very young, like 26, 27, and it was very easy to get caught up in what Hollywood was. It’s really interesting and a lot more fun to answer those questions.”
