Blast from the past — or not? Revivals of fondly remembered 1990s series have taken the front seat for nostalgic TV lovers of late, with viewers enjoying such Netflix updates as Fuller House and Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Sadly, Dawson’s Creek fanatics may have to brace themselves, as Katie Holmes recently shared some potentially devastating news about the series that helped launch her career.
“I don’t think we’re going to do a reunion,” the alum of the teen dramedy series explained on SiriusXM’s Just Jenny Show on Tuesday, December 6.
When asked whether she keeps in touch with her former costars — including James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery), Michelle Williams (Jen Lindley) and Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter) — Holmes told host Jenny Hutt, “We did grow up, but we see each other every now and then.”
The Batman Begins star, 37, pointed out that while she might not be reprising the role of Joey Potter any time soon, she still has very positive memories from her time filming the WB series that signed off in May 2003 after six seasons.
“I think that the charm of the show was [series creator] Kevin Williamson‘s writing, and it was of that time, and it gave teenagers this voice,” Holmes said. “It was a very, very special time — a special show, and I loved every minute of it.”
In happier news for fans, the show’s Williams and Van Der Beek were photographed hanging out together on Saturday, December 3, at a party thrown by Jeff Bezos and Matt Damon to fete the new film Manchester by the Sea. It’s almost like they never left Capeside.
