The American medical comedy-drama tv series Scrubs first aired on October 2, 2001 and ended on March 17, 2017 on NBC and ABC. Fans soon fell in love with the show’s adorable character relationships and medical-related events. In nine years and nine seasons, we saw protagonist John “JD” Dorian, portrayed by Zach Braff, rise from medical intern to doctor. The fictional Sacred Heart teaching hospital was the place where we saw meetings, medical cases, and a lot of laughing. There are now rumors that the show could have a reunion pretty soon.
The show’s talented cast included Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke and Neil Flynn as well. There were also a number of celebrity guests who appeared on the show and made it even more interesting. Those included: Michael J. Fox, Ryan Reynolds and Colin Farrell.
Just like many other fans, you are probably missing J.D’s hilarious voice, but you can calm now. Braff has actually hinted that the old gang may be hitting the small screen again.
If you are the truest fan of the show, you are familiar of the J.D’s many eccentric ways of being. Perhaps the most recognizable of these was his reaction to being picked up. Whenever his best friend, Turk hoisted J.D onto his shoulders, he would shout “eagleeee”. He simply loved the phrase.
It was only natural that Braff reunited with his Scrubs co-stars seven years later and captioned the photo with his character’s favorite word. The actor took to Twitter to document the moment when he ran into Donald Faison and Sarah Chalke, also known as Christopher Turk and Elliot Reid.
Fans were more than thrilled to see the old squad back together again, and many just took this as a reunion sign.
Last year in a Twitter live conversation, Braff suggested that the reunion might be a possibility:
“You never know, it’s something we all talk about […] I’m very jealous of all this Gilmore Girls attention, and Full House, so we talk about it every now and then.”
He also added, “so, you never know. It could happen. I’d do it.”
The talented actor was quite busy in the last seven yeas, however. 42-year-old Braff made his directorial debut in 2004 with Garden State, and he has continued to direct alongside his acting roles. Shortly after the end of Scrubs, Braff directed Wish I Was Here, a comedy-drama which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. His latest film, Going In Style, was released earlier this year and featured Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. The movie revolves around a group of pensioners who attempt to rob a bank after their pensions are retracted.
