Michelle Williams Would Return To ‘Dawson’s Creek’

Back in 2010, James Van Der Beek told Hollywood Crush that former co-star Michelle Williams would totally be down for a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion. We were a bit surprised that she’d want to reprise her role on the soapy series after finding so much success on the big screen.

Well, it seems that she’s still really into the idea.

“I would very happily do a reunion show, I don’t know what it would be,” Michelle told reporters at Comic-Con (via Us Weekly) about returning to Capeside one more time. However, she did note that her return would be particularly unusual given Jen’s fate on the show. “My character died in the end, so there are certain limitations for me. It’s either I come back as a ghost or I’m shot through a lot of gauzy, hazy light as my 19-year-old self.

“I’ve always said that I would really love to and I think independently, we’ve all been saying that,” she continued. “So at some point I hope that it does happen [as]… a way to honor the past and what a big deal it was for the four or five of us and what a big deal it was for the people who watched it.”

And, she’s not wrong. While gossip had it that before she divorced Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes wasn’t allowed to do a “DC” reunion, she is now free to do whatever it is she wants. “It would be fun,” Katie said on “Good Morning America” about the prospects of reunion. “I had so much fun working on that show, and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories.”

Back to Dawson himself, he admitted in that same 2010 interview that he’d be “open” to it, if they could find the right way to do it. And Joshua Jackson said he’d do it, if they could track down all those bowling shirts that Pacey used to wear.

“Dawson’s Creek” ended in 2003 after six seasons on the WB. With the 10-year mark coming up around the bend, now just might be the perfect time to turn up the Paula Cole and climb through Joey’s window one more time.
