20 years later, the Creek is still dry.

Dawson's Creek turns 20! Yes, the beloved WB drama is almost legally allowed to drink, and yes, we feel very old. And while reboots and revivals are all the rage these days, fans shouldn't expect to see Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jen and the rest of the gang return to their TVs anytime soon. 

"What would we do?!" Creator Kevin Williamson told The Hollywood Reporter when asked about a possible reunion special. "One of the reasons we did the finale five years in the future was to put a button on it. What would a reunion be? What would that look like? Why would you? I don't see it and I don't feel it. The finale was such a beautiful moment in time and the show was always meant to be a nostalgia piece. Let it stay there and live in its nostalgia and its nostalgic universe."

And you know what? We agree, especially because Joey ended up with Pacey, so why mess with perfection?!

Back in 2015, Katie Holmes (aka Joey Potter) also questioned the need for a revival. "

"I don't know," she said in a Yahoo Style interview. "Does it work today? I don't want them to grow up. It's kind of like your parents, they never get out of their 50s. That's where they are."

While Williamson has no interest in being the one to revive or reboot Dawson's Creek, he still would "love" to see it happen. 

"I'd love it. All for it. Absolutely," he told THR of someone else taking over the Creek. "It's so rewarding to see it live on in some form or another."
