Back in the '90s, #DawsonsCreek was the hottest thing on television. James Van Der Beek's floppy-haired romantic Dawson was a hit with teens, and his will-they won't-they relationship with Katie Holmes's Joey will forever be a staple of '90s nostalgia.
A lot has changed since the show went off the air in 2003 — Holmes married Tom Cruise and we all know what happened there, while Van Der Beek continued acting in shows like Law & Order and Don't Trust the B— in Apartment 23. As for Dawson's other stars — Joshua Jackson (Pacey) and Michelle Williams (Jen) — they continued their careers long after the show ended.
After 13 years, Van Der Beek and Williams reunited for the first time since the show ended. The pair hadn't been pictured together since 2003, causing all kinds of feverish excitement amongst former fans of the #WB drama.
The gorgeous pair were snapped at the Manchester by the Sea Holiday Party, which was being thrown by Jeff Bezos and Matt Damon in Los Angeles this past Saturday.

Even after 13 years, fans still cling onto the possibility of a reunion — especially after #FullerHouse and #GilmoreGirls got the go ahead. While rumors of a reunion have been flying for a while now, it's unlikely Williams will return, seeing as *spoilers* her character was killed off in the season finale.
Having said this, she told People that she liked imagining her return, perhaps as a ghost or as part of a flashback:
“I would have to come back as a ghost, or put a lot of filters on the camera, and I’ll do flashback scenes, I think it’s a fun thing to sort of imagine. I like imagining it. But I haven’t really heard anybody say anything like actually serious about that happening.”
While we patiently wait for news on the upcoming reunion, it's great to see that despite the last 13 years of raising families, starring in Hollywood movies and Heath Ledger's tragic loss, that the cast have still kept in touch and remain friends to this day.
