On the latest episode of IndieWire‘s Turn It On podcast released this week, John C. McGinley aka Dr. Perry Cox and now the lead in Stan Against Evil, teased a possible Scrubs reunion.
The thing that would get McGinley fully on board would be the involvement of Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence: “I love Billy, so if Billy’s doing it, [I am].“
“I’d be very surprised if some variation of [a Scrubs reunion] doesn’t realise fruition.”
But, McGinley says it might not take the form we’re used to – and we’ve gotta hope it’s nothing like season nine, the Dave Franco-starring one set in med school which saw Zach Braff‘s J.D. written out mid-season.
“I don’t think it would look like a season,” he says. “I think it would be something different… I don’t know what that looks like, however. A two-hour movie? That would be fun.”
A Scrubs movie! That’s exactly what we need. hopefully it happens, unlike the Community one, ey?
Still, McGinley errs on the side of only picking up the reunion special if there’s a new story for the cast of characters to tell: “We did almost 200 episodes of Scrubs,” he says. “If you didn’t wring that towel dry of everything you wanted to get out of those characters, it begs the question: What were you waiting for?”
Earlier this year, Zach Braff told TV Guide that he “daydreams about the idea of doing, like, a TV movie“. Like McGinley, he reckons a movie’s definitely feasible, as opposed to a full season, considering “everyone is all over the place“, the starring actors now busy working on very different projects. He even told The IMDb Show that he’d pitched a concept for the project to Lawrence.
Sarah Chalke/Elliot was equally as keen as her former co-stars when asked back in January: “Would I do a Scrubs reunion movie? Hell yes, I would!“
