'Scrubs' creator promises a return to Sacred Heart — eventually

Paging Dr. Dorian.

Almost a decade after “Scrubs” left the airwaves, creator Bill Lawrence still expects to go back to Sacred Heart Hospital, where J.D. Dorian (Zach Braff), Christopher Turk (Donald Faison), Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke), Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins), Perry Cox (John C. McKingley), Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes) and more spent eight years, plus an ill-received ninth season reboot with a mostly new cast.

He’s just not in any rush.

“When we hit a time when we’re all looking for work or we don’t get to hang out as much, we will,” Lawrence, whose new series, “Whiskey Cavalier,” premieres after the Oscars, told the Daily News. “We’ll definitely get there.”

Lawrence has typically hedged on the idea of rebooting the medical comedy, including just last year during a “Scrubs” reunion panel at Vulture Festival when he said he worried that revivals sometimes “feel like a money grab.”

But the cast, which still gets together frequently, if social media is any barometer, has long said they would be open to putting their scrubs back on, whether for a new series or a movie.

Hopefully it won’t just be in J.D.’s head.
