Dawson's Creek was once one of the biggest shows for young adults, and fans are still passionate to this day about whether Pacey or Dawson was a better match for Joey. In fact, it's difficult to believe that the show premiered way back in 1998 and the young actors who tackled the four lead roles are now accomplished performers with many roles to their names. James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson, and Michelle Williams reunited for Dawson's Creek's 20th anniversary. Take a look at the pic!
Something tells me Joey/Pacey fans will be happy with this reunion photo! Katie Holmes has her hands on Joshua Jackson's shoulders in a pose that could almost pass for a photo of Joey and Pacey, 15 years after the finale ended with the two poised to enjoy a happily-ever-after. The response to the pic (posted on EW's Twitter) might have been quite negative among those fans if James Van Der Beek had been touching one or both of them. That love triangle may be best left in the past. For her part, Michelle Williams looks lovely as always as she stands over the other three.
Now that TV is in an era of reboots, remakes, and revivals, this reunion of the four key Dawson's Creek players will undoubtedly have fans wondering if they could comeback for another batch of episodes together. Revivals -- such as Will and Grace and the newly-premiered Roseanne -- have turned in huge ratings and given the actors more exposure. That said, the actors are more or less doing pretty well for themselves without tackling their Dawson's Creek roles again, and Katie Holmes has already said that she doesn't think Dawson's Creek could work again for a fairly understandable reason.
Some members of the cast have spoken about a willingness to return for a revival, however, so who knows? Maybe something could happen to bring them all together again, even if not for a full batch of episodes. Surely fans would tune in for a reunion special on the small screen. Even the busiest members of the cast might be able to get together for a special running an hour or two rather than a full season. We'll have to wait and see. Dawson's Creek does still have an impact on current shows, so we can be positive that its legacy lives on.
