Sorry, Scrubs Fans, Zach Braff’s Tweet Doesn’t Mean a Revival Is Happening
Zach Braff got a lot of people talking when he posted a photo of himself reunited with his former Scrubs co-stars and captioned it, “Season 10?”
The idea seemed plausible enough. Nowadays, just about every show seems ripe for revival. And since there aren’t very many medical comedies left to break up the monotony of so many hospital dramas now that the likes of House, Children’s Hospital and Royal Pains are through too, now’s as good a time as any for J.D. and Turk to get the bromance going again.
Unfortunately for anyone who took the tweet at face value, Scrubs Season 10 is not in the works. At least not right now.
The group got back together for the show’s stint at VultureFest on Saturday evening, during which creator Bill Lawrence slapped down the idea of a revival series, while still leaving the possibility of more Scrubs on the table in a different format.
“I would do anything to get to work with not only this group, but the writers, and do it again,” he said (via The Hollywood Reporter), with the caveat that “sometimes reboots — not all the time — feel like a money grab.”
Lawrence went on to add, “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.”
