While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Bill Lawrence revealed that he has been approached several times about the idea of rebooting “Scrubs” — but he doesn’t foresee it happening. Part of Lawrence’s reluctance is the fact that he got a bit burnt out working on the show the first time around.
With a laugh, Lawrence said, “I reached a point on that show, and maybe I stayed too long, but by the sixth year, the writers would be like, ‘What should Dr. Cox’s [played by John C. McGinley] rant be?’ And I’m like, ‘Why does he have to be f***ing mad every week? Who cares what he’s mad at? My God!'”
That being said, Lawrence is keeping an open mind about the idea of a reboot, especially because he would love to work with the cast again. The creator said, “Here’s the thing, everybody on that show is killing it today. So, I think we’d all do it to have the excuse to spend time with each other, but no one’s in dire need of work and we see each other anyway. If we ever come up with an idea that would be fun to revisit, we’d do it just for the hang of it.”
