Dawson’s Creek — the classic television series from the 90s — has still been pleasing millions of fans and critics years after the series finale first premiered.
Over the years, each of the leading cast members from Dawson’s Creek have been asked about whether or not there will be a reunion in the near (or distant) future, primarily because of the great chemistry that each of the actors and actresses had on the small screen.
James Van Der Beek was able to prove subtly on Saturday that their chemistry has lasted much longer than the actual show, which skyrocketed each of their careers in Hollywood.
James posted a picture of himself alongside his Dawson’s Creek costar Joshua Jackson. Based on the background of the picture (which was posted on James’ official Instagram profile), it seems like Dawson Leery and Pacey Witter were at some sort of party.
From the caption alone, it is clearly evident that James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson did not necessarily plan this encounter at all, but enjoyed it even more just the same.
“The most pleasant run-ins can happen in the most unexpected places…”
Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek played best friends on Dawson’s Creek for the majority of the show’s six-season run – except for the moments when they were going head to head for the love of their mutual friend, Joey Potter (played by Katie Holmes).
Even though many of them had acting careers before Dawson’s Creek first aired in January of 1998, the show allowed their careers on the big and small screen alike to skyrocket.
Perhaps the most commercially successful actor from Dawson’s Creek was Michelle Williams. However, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, and James Van Der Beek have all been able to enjoy many years in the Hollywood limelight long after Dawson’s Creek went off of the air.
Recent reports have shown that there will be an official Dawson’s Creek reunion at the ATX TV Festival next year. According to Hollywood Life, the Gilmore Girls cast will also be reuniting at the same festival.
Therefore, many fans and critics of the teen drama created by Kevin Williamson will have the chance to see Dawson, Pacey, Joey, and Jen all together again at the same time.
Are you excited? Which of the Dawson’s Creek characters are you more excited to see? What do you think about this Instagram picture of Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek reuniting a little sooner than expected?
