The 10-year challenge has been the biggest social craze of 2019 so far — and the timing could not have been more perfect for Scrubs fans. This year also marks the 10-year anniversary of the medical comedy's finale, which makes us simultaneously feel old and wish J.D. and Turk were back on our TV screens permanently. 

Luckily, we can stream episodes of Scrubs whenever we want (thank you, Hulu) to help with the withdrawal symptoms, but we are still left with one major question: what has our favorite cast been up to since leaving Sacred Heart Hospital? 

Check out the gallery below to see what Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, and the rest of the Scrubs cast is doing 10 years later!
