Can you believe it's been 18 years since Scrubs first aired?! (18 years, 2 months, 13 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Scrubs end?
When Scrubs came to an end after 9 years in March 2010, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Dr. J.D. Dorian (Zach Braff). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Scrubs reunion disappoint people?
Scrubs aired from 2001-2010 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Braff said he's not sure if Scrubs would work today. “I don't want to see old Dr. J.D. Dorian,” he told a journalist (Braff turned 44 in April). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Scrubs movie?
In a recent interview, John C. McGinley (who played Perry Cox) said he can't imagine a Scrubs reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Donald Faison (who played Christopher Turk) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Scrubs movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Scrubs film, Dave Franco stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Scrubs reboot?
Recasting Scrubs for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Scrubs reunion, a Scrubs movie, or a Scrubs reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
