Source: The Hollywood Reporter
Bill Lawrence reunited with the cast of his seven-season NBC/ABC comedy at Vulture Festival, where he was asked about a possible revival. “I would do anything to get to work with not only this group (but the entire crew)…it was the best time in my life,” Lawrence said. But “sometimes reboots — not all the time — feel like a money grab.” Lawrence added: "If we ever do it, we’ll do it as a short little movie or something else. I think the problem from me is I would just want to see where everyone is. I would want to see where their marriages are (as opposed to a huge event).”
