The cast of 'Dawson's Creek.'

I don’t want to wait… for our lives to be over…

Warning: You  may be singing the tune to Dawson’s Creek for the entire week after reading this.

Michelle Williams, who infamously played Jen Lindley on the long-running WB series (1998-2003), recently admitted that she’d be down for filming a follow-up with the rest of the crew!

I know what you’re thinking. “Wait, didn’t she die in the series finale?” Who cares! This is beyond words.

When hearing that James Van Der Beek was interested in making a new installment, she quickly reacted, “He has my email! He has my home phone and my cell phone, so we talk.”

Added Williams, “[James] could totally ask! I’ve always said, I’m totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that.”

Last fall, while appearing on Good Morning America, Katie Holmes showed interest in a reunion as well. “It would be fun,” Holmes told host Robin Roberts. “I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories.”

Now all we need is Joshua Jackson’s approval! Or maybe Jen and Pacey switched bodies! That could work, no?

In light of this exciting news, take a look below at James, Michelle, Katie, and Joshua from then to now! Most cast members gone off and become A-list actors with new television shows, movie roles, and Academy Award nominations. But most importantly, many have become parents. I wonder how long it’ll be before Katie and Michelle let Suri Cruise and Matilda Ledger watch Dawson’s Creek. What do you think?
