Dawson’s Creek Cast Reunites After 20 Years for Entertainment Weekly

It’s been 20 years since Dawson’s Creek aired its first episode on The WB, and to celebrate its anniversary, entertainment Weekly reunited eight fan favorites to share their memories of the teen drama. The magazine released four solo covers, each featuring one of the lead actors—Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson, James Van Der Beek and Michelle Williams—and one group cover. (Williams shared her solo cover with BFF Busy Phillips, who starred as Audrey Liddell.)

And in addition to conducting exclusive interviews with Holmes (Joey Potter), Jackson (Pacey Witter), Van der Beek (Dawson Leery) and Williams (Jen Lindley), the magazine took pictures and filmed videos of fellow cast members Meredith Monroe (Andie McPhee), Mary Beth Peil(Evelyn “Grams” Ryan), John Wesley Shipp (Mitch Leery), Kerr Smith (Jack McPhee) and more.

“I think we’ve all sort of seen each other over the years, but not everybody all together,” Holmes says of running into her former colleagues since its end. “And never for long enough.”

Dawson’s Creek was an instant smash hit, propelling its four unknown leads into superstardom. “I was actually with James when he signed his first autograph,” remembers Mary-MargaretHumes, who played Dawson’s mother, Gail Leery. “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.'”
