Joshua Jackson’s character Pacey Witter, Dawson’s best friend, rounded out the foursome.
The show ran for six seasons from 1998 to 2003 and charted the four’s intertwined lives through high school and college. The final episode was forwarded five years to catch up with the group in their new lives in 2008.
Katie revealed last year that a possible revival of the series had been discussed ‘many’ times in recent years.
Speaking to Variety, the actress seemed intrigued by the concept of bringing back Dawson’s Creek, but she also worried that the culture might have changed too much from the noughties when it first aired, which is a bit of a departure from the original. can suppress its sweetness.
‘There have been many discussions over the years. We all loved the experience,’ she said when interviewed.
‘There is a protection that comes with the reservation. The show was a time capsule,’ she continued. ‘Putting it in today’s world might tarnish it a bit.
‘It was just before everyone had a phone and social media and all that, so there was an innocence between the characters which was one of the things I think people loved about the show. To put it in the context of today’s world, I’m not sure,’ she muses.

“We talked about it often,” the actress added. “For now, we’re just going to keep saying that until there’s a real reason to do it, it wasn’t something where people said, ‘That’s the view of it.'”
Michelle, meanwhile, recently spoke about the foundations the show gave her for her award-winning career, which has seen her earn five Oscar nominations.
‘It taught me how to be responsible, it taught me how to get to work on time, it taught me how to prepare at night for the next day, it taught me about the basics of how to taking care of myself,’ Michelle recalled in a 2023 interview about her teenage years on the show.
She added of filming in South Carolina: ‘We were in like a really sleepy southern town and the crew really felt like they were looking out for us.’
“They knew how young we were and they kind of put bumpers around us, just making sure we were safe and taken care of, that I went to the dentist, things that didn’t really come naturally to me.”
“I really appreciate the way people genuinely let us have a kind of childhood.”
