Where are the cast of Dawson's Creek now?

Cast your mind back to 1998 when teenagers around the world were treated to the wonderful world of Dawson's Creek.

Here we met four hormone driven 16 year olds and their friends.

With the complex conversations about love, life and sex, and the soothing soundtrack, it was no wonder teens of the 90s fell in love with the show.

With many fans enjoying a trip down memory lane on Netflix, here's what they have been up to since.

James Van Der Beek

Who can forget the floppy haired Dawson Leery?

James, now 44, played the angst-ridden all-American boy.

Since departing the Creek, he has appeared in How I Met Your Mother, Ugly Betty, and Criminal Minds.

He played a mock version of himself in the hilarious, short lived comedy, Don't Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.

Katie Holmes

Katie, now 42, played Joey Potter, a tomboy who was mates with Dawson and lived with her sister across the creek.

Since Dawson's Creek wrapped up, Katie has remained in the spotlight.

After dating co-star Joshua Jackson, she married Tom Cruise in 2006.

The pair had daughter Suri a year later, but eventually split in 2012.

In 2016 Katie started dating Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx, but the couple split in 2019.

The biggest film she has starred in so far is Batman Begins, when she played Rachel Dawes, Gotham's assistant district attorney and Bruce Wayne's childhood sweetheart.

In 2011, she played Jackie Kennedy in miniseries The Kennedys, and reprised that role in The Kennedys: Decline And Fall in 2016.

Then in 2018 she starred in Ocean's 8 as herself.

Most recently, she starred in Brahms: The Boy II and The Secret: Dare to Dream.

Katie began dating Emilio Vitolo in 2020, making the relationship official on her birthday.

Joshua Jackson

Pacey Witter’s relationship with Joey had viewers swooning at their TV screens – but his most memorable storyline was when he had an affair with his teacher in season one.

Dawson's Creek wasn't even his first big break, having starred as Charlie Conway in The Mighty Ducks films.

Yet, Joshua struggled with life after leaving the hit TV show.

In 2002, Joshua was arrested at an ice hockey game after a row with a security guard and was charged with assault and being intoxicated.

Despite this, he has been able to maintain a career in the spotlight.

The People's Choice Award nominee saw his star soar when he landed the role of Cole Lockhart in The Affair in 2014.

He left the show in 2020.

Joshua, now 42, also appeared as Peter Bishop in Sky One's Fringe.

In 2020 he starred in Little Fires Everywhere, while he is set to feature in Dr. Death.

He married Jodie Turner-Smith in 2019 and they had their first child together – a daughter – in April 2020.

Michelle Williams

Bad girl Jen Lindley was portrayed by Michelle.

Probably the most successful of the Dawson Creek stars, the 40-year-old actress has been nominated for an Oscar four times.

She has starred in a reel of cult movies.

Brokeback Mountain, My Week With Marilyn and Shutter Island are among her most impressive acting credits.

And she continued to star in blockbusters, including The Greatest Showman, Oz the Great and Powerful and Venom

The experienced star of the screen has also given impressive stage performances on Broadway's Cabaret and Blackbird.

Kerr Smith

Kerr joined Dawson's Creek in season two, and went on to be one of the leading characters.

He played Jack McPhee, the first openly-gay character to smooch on screen.

Now 49 the actor has appeared in Agents of SHIELD, Charmed, NCIS, and two CSI series – NY and Miami.

Since 2019 he has played Principal Holden Honey in hit teen drama Riverdale.

When he's not acting, Kerr enjoys the perks of being a certified pilot and also started a holistic health and wellness business, TerraLife Wellness, with his second wife Lisa.

Meredith Monroe

Meredith played Andie McPhee in Dawson's Creek from 1998 to 2000.

She was actually 28 when she played a 16-year-old.

The former model continued to pick up acting roles after the cameras stopped rolling.

Now 51, she is best-known for portraying Haley Hotchner in Criminal Minds.

Meredith has had minor roles in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, CSI: Miami and The Mentalist.

From 2018 to 2020 she joined another teen drama, 13 Reasons Why, but this time playing a mother.

Will there be a Dawson's Creek reboot?

Not only can fans of the show catch every episode on Netflix, there is chatter of a possible reboot.

Former Daweson's Creek star Mary-Margaret Humes – who played Gail Leery – revealed in March 2021 that the chances of it coming back remain high.

She told People: "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 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 puck up where we left off and just let that element be there but not be so pedominant.

"So, as far as I know, personal information from the kids, um, there's a strong possibility."
