As a main cast member, Holmes appeared in all 128 episodes of Dawson’s Creek. And according to Celebrity Net Worth, she earned around $30,000 per episode during the early seasons. After the show gained popularity, she received a raise and earned approximately $175,000 per episode. Assuming this was her salary during the final season, this calculates to $4.2 million for 24 episodes.

When asked about the possibility of a reboot, she told Variety, "There have been many discussions over the years. We all loved the experience. There’s a protection that comes along with the discussion. The show was a time capsule. To put it into today’s world might tarnish it a little bit."

She added, "It was right before everyone had a phone and social media and all of that, so there was an innocence that was there between the characters that was one of the things I think people liked about the show. To put it into the setting of today’s world, I’m not sure."
