"I remember loving the script", he said. Part of a new craze for teen-themed movies and television shows in America in the late 1990s, it catapulted its leads to stardom and became a defining show for The WB. For months, I have been posting #behindthescenes photos to share my experiences of six years on this show.
Entertainment Weekly editors brought the actors together for the first time since the teen drama ended in 2003 to reminisce about their breakout roles on the TV series, which helped to turn them into household names.
Katherine Heigl nearly played Jen Lindley in "Dawson's Creek", pilot director Steve Miner told Entertainment Weekly as part of a 20th anniversary special. "I think we would sort of have to watch them fall in love all over again as middle-aged adults".
Though Humes and Shipp Jr. apparently did phone interviews with the publication in celebration of the show's 20th anniversary, they claim to have no idea a photoshoot was happening with their former co-stars. "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".
I think Pacey and Joey got married. "But there's still something between them that forces them to come together and raise their children".
The cast and Williamson agreed there would probably not be a reboot of the show, since they already wrapped it up and showed where everyone would be five years later, and one of the principal characters (Williams) was dead. As they seek out happiness with others, they just keep coming back to each other.
Ultimately, while Kevin Williamson seems to have a darker future in mind for the Dawson's Creek gang, it seems that he can still see a reality where Dawson eventually finds what he needs to be happy, and Joey and Pacey find a way back to each other, even after a divorce.
