Katie Holmes Talks ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Reunion
Recently Katie Holmes revealed that she is open to the idea of a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Surely, this revelation must have the fans of the show all excited. Holmes played Joey Potter on the teen drama between 1998 and 2003. She was quoted as saying “I love everyone from the show. We have kind of talked about it here and there”. However, Holmes added that the death of Michelle Williams’s character Jen in the series finale would make it difficult to stage a full cast reunion.
“In our last episode, Michelle’s character passed away,” she explained. “Maybe we’ll go on vacation – that will be fun – and just film it!” Even earlier this year Katie had spoken about her willingness to be a part of a reunion, if the makers of the show were ever to plan one. “I’ve always said, I’m totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that,” the Oscar-nominated actress was at that point quoted as saying. But, her then husband Tom Cruise had vetoed the idea of Katie ever being a part of the show, if it were to be revived. “[Producers] were begging her to sign on for a reunion movie,” a source alleged. “Tom said absolutely no way and thought going backward would be bad” the source added.
For the uninitiated, Dawson’s Creek is an American teen drama television series created by Kevin Williamson which debuted on January 20, 1998, on The WB and was produced by Sony Pictures Television. The show is set in the fictional seaside town of Capeside, Massachusetts, and in Boston, Massachusetts, during the later seasons. It portrays the fictional lives of a close-knit group of teenagers through high school and college.
The program, part of a new craze for teen-themed movies and television shows in America in the late 1990s, catapulted its leads to stardom and became a defining show for The WB. The series ended on May 14, 2003. Katie Holmes is the only cast member who appeared in all 128 episodes of the show. In fact the show was so popular that, Simon & Schuster published a series of fifteen mass-market paperback novelizations of the series.
