The new HBO Max Friends reunion special was so successful – and Emmy nominated – it could begin a trend. Yet, don’t anticipate that the stars of Dawson’s Creek should bounce on it.
“I think because the Friends cast were already adults when they were doing the show, it’s less jarring to see them now,” DC alum Joshua Jackson told the Guardian in a new interview published on Sunday.
Indeed, the actor thinks a sit-down reunion of the now-adult stars of the coming of age teen drama, which featured James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Jackson, and Michelle Williams, may be jostling.
“If you put our mid-40s selves together on a couch now, with our creaking backs, it might shock people,” he added. “Nobody needs to hear Pacey grunting when he gets out of a chair.”
We’re genuinely certain that is not the situation, however Jackson isn’t the lone Dawson’s alum to pass on the possibility of a get-together.
Back in 2016, Holmes recommended a reboot with the OG cast wasn’t possible.
“I don’t think we’re going to do a reunion,” Holmes, 37, told SiriusXM’s Just Jenny Show. “We did grow up, but we see each other every now and then. I think that the charm of the show was Kevin Williamson’s writing and it was of that time and it gave teenagers this voice. It was a very, very special time — a special show and I loved every minute of it.”
Indeed, we’ll generally have this notorious EW Dawson’s Creek get-together cover to move a little fan fiction concerning what befell the DC posse.
Also, as of Friday, fanatics of the show can hear a re-recorded adaptation of craftsman Paula Cole’s signature tune, which discovered its direction back to the show, in the wake of being supplanted (with Jann Arden’s “Run Like Mad”) in its streaming life, because of rights issues.
Netflix declared the arrival of Cole’s tune by means of Twitter, expressing, “Dawson’s Creek fans, I’m thrilled to announce that — at long last — you will hear Paula Cole’s iconic song ‘I Don’t Want to Wait’ when you watch the opening credits!”
Cole affirmed by means of her Twitter account that she re-recorded her famed song, and that is the version being used.
“It’s true. I re-recorded ‘I Don’t Want To Wait’, and they are using the master,” she tweeted. “All artists should be compensated for their intellectual work. Thank you @SonyTV@netflix and most of all the fans who made this happen. That’s the power of patience & persistence. Grateful.”
