It seems like the noughties are the decade for reunions, how many bands, television shows and movies have we seen re-cast, reboot, re-done? Plenty.
The most important news is how possibly close we are to some for of Dawson’s Creek reunion. According to an article on Zimbio.com the ever lovely (and clearly most successful and famous) Michelle Williams commented once again on how she would love a DC reunion! Yes she may have been saying this in jest, but for SUPER fans like myself I will take anything they give me and create a whole fantasy in my brain, so Jen goes: “I’ve always said, I’m totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that.”.
But of course you know and I know that Williams’ character Jen died in the very last episode, oh how many tears I have shed, so how could it be possible she would be part of reunion cast? Williams’ suggests coming back as a ghost! Genius.
Then we need the rest of them you say? Obviously the next most important cast member is… Joshua Jackson. He spoke to E!’s Marc Malkin recently and said he would totally welcome a gig on James Van Der Beek’s awesome new show Don’t Trust The B—– in Apartment 23. That’s close enough, but WE WANT PACEY.
Van Der Beek is
currently starring in the new now cancelled show on ABC as a heightened version of himself, cue plenty of DC gags and Paula Cole’s soundtrack song “I don’t want to wait” as background music. Very funny. He also has his own Van Der Memes website which you absolutely must check out because it is simply hilarious. He said he finds it amusing when Williams’ says she wants in on a reunion because her character’s dead but also said, “If somebody came up with a brilliant idea how to do it, why not?” One step closer…
the hostage Joey to recover now. Katie Holmes has openly admitted that she would welcome a reunion for the hit WB show, “I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories, a really great group of people”. That was back in 2011 on Good Morning America when she was allowed out to promote something by her kidnapper husband Tom Cruise.
So all in all there is a HUGE possibility this could really happen. Dawson’s Creek could return to our airwaves, but for now I will hold out for a Pacey guest star on Van Der Beek’s show because that would be fantastic television.
So now that Katie Holmes has been released from her contract and her career is pretty much pathetically non-existent, she has publicly spoken about wanting to patch things up with Michelle Williams (apparently they had some sort of beef) and actually make this Dawson’s Creek reunion happen.
Even though my beloved Fringe went off air and Joshua Jackson has a new gig, he still is the glue that holds the group together.
Come on 2014 bring my actual dreams alive. Pacey Witter back on my tellybox.
