‘Dawson’s Creek‘ was a hit back in the late 90s and early 2000s, making its debut on The WB in 1998. The show focused on the lives of teenagers as they went through adolescence and the trials that come with it. The show was extremely popular at its peak and catapulted Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams, James Van Der Beek, and Joshua Jackson to stardom.
Now it seems Mary-Margaret Humes, who played Gail Leery, the mother of the show’s protagonist Dawson Leery, recently talked about the possibility of a reboot for the show.
While speaking on ATX TV’s Mother Knows Best: A Look at 90s TV Moms, Humes revealed that a reboot of Dawson’s Creek is a huge possibility.
Katie Holmes and I have talked about it. James Van Der Beek and I have talked about it. I actually wrote, like, 190 pages of an idea for a crossover to a reboot. Whether it goes anywhere, I don’t know, but there is certainly a lot of buzz about it. I think what they have expressed is—our show was so much simpler than what television is now. Again, because of social media. And it’s, like, you can actually do a show and not make any references to social media. We can pick up where left off and just let that element be there but not be so predominant. So, as far as I know, personal information from the kids, um, there’s a strong possibility.
We will have to see when the reboot will happen, should the project be greenlight in the first place. A new generation of fans will certainly want to watch it.
