Zach Braff keen for a Scrubs reboot

The era of television revivals is well and truly here, with Netflix enjoying huge success with bringing back both the likes of Gilmore Girls and Fuller House.

So who will inevitably be next? Scrubs fans are certainly hoping for a return to Sacred Heart Hospital, with star Zach Braff being posed the question during a Twitter Q&A for his latest directorial project Going Out in Style.

"You never know about making more Scrubs episodes," Braff replied. "It's something we all talk about, especially now that all these people are going back and doing, like, Netflix versions of their shows. I'm very jealous of all this Gilmore Girls attention, and Full House."

"So, we talk about it every now and then, so you never know. It could happen. I'd do it."

Netflix would probably do well to listen to Braff; Scrubs was never a particularly big hitter when it came to ratings, but its nine-season run established a pretty strong fanbase, who'd be guaranteed to start salivating at the first sign that JD and Turk were making a return.

Furthermore, it's the kind of show that isn't quite so intrinsically tied to the era it was produced in, unlike the unmistakable '90s-ness of Friends; though the show did deliver a pretty satisfying ending to fans, with very few loose threads left to tie up.

The only issue would be getting its cast back together; Braff has his directing career, Donald Faison (Turk) is the current host of Winsanity!, and Sarah Chalke (Dr. Elliot Reed) is a regular voice on Rick and Morty. But never say never.
