TV revivals are all the rage, and all of our favorite 90s series are being resurrected for the small screen. We've already seen The X-Files reemerge as a viable event series. Next up is Fuller House, which reunites the Full House clan on Netflix. And shooting right now as we speak is the Gilmore Girls Revival Event Series. But there's one show from the 90s that we probably won't see get a reboot. And that's The CW's hit teen drama, Dawson's Creek.
This might be for the best, since the Dawson's Creek Season 6 finale brought everything to a close with a jump to the future, which showed where all the characters ended up. It brought much closure to Dawson, Joey, Pacey and Jen's plight. Now, star Katie Holmes has revealed why a Dawson's Creek revival probably won't ever happen. And it's not because the actors don't want to reunite. There is a much more sweet, simple reason behind the show staying locked into the 90s.
Speaking with USA Today, the actress who played Joey explains that Dawson's Creek is from a completely different era. It proceeds social media and all the pitfalls that come with it. This was, perhaps, the last teen series where characters could believably pass notes in class, or not be caught up on all the high school drama with one quick glance at their Twitter feed. Here's how the actress explains the show's tarpit like trappings.
"When I look back at the show, it had a certain charm that was available. It was before the Internet really took over, it was before iPhones, it was before this kind of new form of communication, and it had this certain feeling that was of the '90s. I don't think that in today's world, you could achieve that same kind of feeling."
Dawson's Creek came from Scream writer Kevin Williamson, and it redefined the teen dramas of that era. The show ended in 2003, and ever since, fans have wanted some kind of reunion. While the cast might get back together for a fun EW photo shoot sometime in the near future, don't look for the future adventures of Dawson and Pacey to hit the small screen anytime soon. What do you think? Despite the actress' comments, do you still want to return to the Creek? Or is this one show best left in the dustbin of history?
