Throughout the years, there have been a number of television shows that have left lasting legacies. Dawson’s Creek is certainly one of them, as the popular teen series made its mark during its six seasons from 1998 to 2003. And in March 2018 the cast of the show reunited to celebrate Dawson’s Creek’s 20th anniversary – a move that may have thrilled long-time fans and ’90s nostalgics alike.
Fresh from the success of penning the first two Scream movies, Kevin Williamson was the man responsible for first bringing Dawson’s Creek into the world. And the drama – which made its debut on screens in January 1998 – charted the lives of four teenagers in the fictional town of Capeside, including the eponymous Dawson Leery. Unlike a lot of similar shows from that time, though, it had an ace up its sleeve.
In particular, Dawson’s Creek’s dialogue really stood out – not least because it neatly matched the whip-smart tone of Williamson’s previous work. And perhaps down in part to the repartee between its characters, the show ran for almost 130 episodes before coming to an end in 2003. Along the way, too, it both built a loyal fan base and made stars of its young cast.
