Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the premiere of Dawson’s Creek? Neither can James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery).

In honor of the show’s 20th anniversary today, Van Der Beek posted a throwback photo on Instagram of himself, Katie Holmes (Joey Potter), Michelle Williams (Jen Lindley) and Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter), along with a supersweet message that is urging us to rewatch all six seasons stat.

Van Der Beek captioned the post, “#tbt Squad ’97. I’d known these people all of 7 days when this pic was taken. 20 years ago this week. The little pilot we shot in that small town for that fledgling network aired, changed our lives and launched our careers.”

The 40-year-old concluded his reflection by thanking the fans for their support over the years. He continued, “It makes me feel proud to be associated with these three fine people (and the rest of the cast), and proud to have been a part of #DawsonsCreek. This one will always have a special little place in my heart.”

We’re not crying, you are.
