The year is 2008. After five years, the gang returns to Capeside for a reunion and wedding after taking different paths in life. Joey is a successful book editor living in New York with her current ...
Set in a small coastal, Massachusetts town named Capeside, Dawson's Creek tells the story of four teenagers as they struggle through adolescence. This is particularly true for 15-year-olds Dawson Leery, an introspective dreamer and Joey Potter, a precocious tomboy unaware of her beauty. Best friends since childhood, they are about to enter that confusing time in life where nothing is the way it was and nothing is as it seems.Written by
There are a few references to Tom Cruise in the early seasons. Joey and Dawson are watching a scene from Jerry Maguire (1996). Later, during suspension from school, Pacey is seen watching Jerry Maguire (1996). Pacey, and the mysterious Eve (Jen's half-sister), convince Dawson to let them use his house for a Risky Business (1983)-inspired fundraiser, to pay for a boat mishap, into which Eve led him. Katie Holmes (having had a relationship with Joshua Jackson during the series) later became Mrs. Cruise number three. See more »
The first season took place from fall to spring in the state of Massachusetts, however the realities of a Massachusetts winter (snow, heavy clothes, etc.) never appeared. See more »
I was scared.
Of going backwards, of never growing up.
That's what I represent to you?
No, not you. Us. I started this year thinking that I had to say good-bye to you, but I was wrong. Dawson, you're a huge part of my life - past, present, and future - and I have to start getting used to that because... you make my life better, not worse

Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait" was the theme song originally used during the broadcast of the show. However on the US region 1 DVDs this song is only used for the first two seasons. The subsequent seasons use Jann Arden's "Run Like Mad" See more »
I watched this in high school until I graduated in 2001. I can't remember the ending so I believe that I stopped watching once I graduated. I rewatched it on Hulu and it's amazing how simple life was back then. No cell phones! We actually hung out with friends and talked to people IN PERSON. I love how PG this show is. So innocent. Sure there are hints of sex scenes but they cut from simply kissing to the aftermath of simply laying next to the person. The shows today are a little more risqué.
I enjoyed this show as a teen and I enjoyed rewatching it and remembering the "good ole days" of my youth.
