Cue the Nostalgia: The ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Cast Reunites for the First Time in 20 Years
If you don’t wanna wait to see the Dawson’s Creek cast together again, then you’re in luck.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the show’s premiere, James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery), Katie Holmes (Joey Potter), Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter) and Michelle Williams (Jen Lindley) reunited to grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
The stars also posed for four solo covers featuring Van Der Beek, Holmes, Jackson and Williams with her BFF and former castmate Busy Philipps (Audrey Liddell).
Is it just us or does Van Der Beek look more handsome than ever?
And Holmes is a vision in pink.
Jackson returns to the dock where it all started.
Williams opted to pose with Philipps, her bestie of 20 years, instead of solo and we love it.
In addition to the covers, the former costars sat down to reminisce about the show and the memories they shared.

During the catch-up sesh, Holmes confirmed this was the first time the gang had been back together, saying, “I think we’ve all sort of seen each other over the years, but not everybody all together. And never for long enough.”
Van Der Beek recalled the shock he felt when the show became a smash hit, and Mary-Margaret Humes, who played his mother, Gail, remembered watching him sign his first autograph: “My husband and I had taken James up to Universal City in L.A. to watch a movie. This girl came up to James and said, ‘Excuse me, aren’t you that guy on Dawson’s Creek? May I have your autograph?’ He signed it and said, ‘Oh my God, Mary-Margaret, that was my first!’ And, of course, my thought was ‘Oh, honey, hang on.’”
That does it. We’re canceling our weekend plans and re-watching all six seasons of the teen drama that captured our moody ’90s heart (streaming on Hulu now). Ah, nostalgia.
