It’s the year of the reunion, right? So why not bring back the ultimate WB teen drama — at least for an episode, movie, tribute to Kevin Williamson (really anyway possible).
On Jan. 20, 1998, Dawson’s Creek came in with a bang to The WB. Exactly 18 years later, Joshua Jackson still remembers his role of Pacey — and understands that everyone wants a reunion. With NBC reuniting every huge sitcom cast for a tribute to James Burrows, we’re all waiting for Warner Bros. to do the same. So, what’s Josh think about that?

“Well, that depends. [Show creator] Kevin Williamson would have to ask,” Josh said in a new interview with The Insider via ETOnline, while promoting his off-broadway show, Smart People. However, with the way that the show ended — Jen Lindley dying from a heart condition — it’d be a little tough to have the full cast there. “People always forget that Michelle Williams’ Jen character was killed off, so they really need to figure out a way around that,” Josh explained. “I guess she could come back as a ghost, or they could do it like Dallas did and have someone wake up and find her alive in the shower 20 years later. That could work!”
As a Dawson’s Creek fanatic, I’m going to say I’m okay with any way that the show could return — but it may be weird to have the ghost of Jen Lindley floating around Capeside (or New York or LA or wherever Jack and her baby are). Watch Dawson’s Creek reruns on Amazon for free.
James Van Der Beek seemed to be in the Dawson’s mood as well, posting this throwback photo:

Previews for Smart People begin Jan. 26, so all you DC fans can check that out in NYC — and just wait slowly for the cast to eventually get back together.
