Capeside fans, rejoice–the cast of one of our favorite angsty teen coming-of-age dramas, Dawson’s Creek reunited for the first time in 20 years for the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, as they candidly discussed why the show resonated with the audience during a simpler, pre-social media time that feels like a lifetime ago.
With the latest trend in reboots the cast and creator, Kevin Williamson, also discussed whether or not they would be open to revisiting the show. “What I love about this show is that it existed at a time pre-social media, pre-internet, and it was nostalgic when we were shooting it,” Katie Holmes told the magazine. “So I really like it where it is, to be honest.”
While Williamson didn’t necessarily rule out the idea, as of now he has no plans to personally return to Capeside. “Dawson’s Creek was me expressing myself at that point in time. And here I am, at another age, at another point in time. I don’t know what I could emotionally bring to the table,” he said. “I can’t wait for someone else to do it. I don’t think it’s going to be me,” he added. “But I’ll be happy to watch it.”
