Show Summary

It's the end of something simple. And the beginning of everything else. Set in the fictional town of Capeside, MA, Dawson's Creek is the coming of age story of four friends on the verge of adulthood. Dawson, Joey, and Pacey are life long friends, whose lives start to rapidly change when a new girl, Jen, moves in next door to Dawson Leery and the foursome start high school. Along the way they are joined by two other newcomers to Capeside: Jack and Andie and, when they go to college, by Audrey. Often characterized by its intelligence, sharp wit, and SAT vocabulary, Dawson's Creek was created by Kevin Williamson. It was loosely based on his life, with each character incorporating a different aspect of himself.

The show quickly launched the careers of its stars, turning them into world known celebrities and, in the words of The WB, defined a network. Dawson'sCreek was filmed primarily on location in Wilmington, NC.

Theme Songs: I Don't Want To Wait performed by Paula Cole and Run Like Mad performed by Jann Arden - Season 1 (international airings only) and Seasons 3-6 on DVD (except the series finale, when it played Paula Cole's song).

The WB Broadcast History: January 1998 to May 1998 --- Tuesday 9:00 pm. October 1998 to May 2003 --- Wednesday 8:00 pm.

DVDs: All of Dawson's Creek's Seasons (and the Series Finale) are available and can be bought! TBS and The N are currently airing reruns of Dawson's Creek. Spin-off: Young Americans.

  • somewhat a teen drama

    Dawson's creek is a great show to watch if you want to relive high school and live vicariously through the 5 very dynamic and usually likeable teens. Season 3 and 4 were probably the best because everyone knows Pacey and Joey were the crowd pleaser couple. Dawson, a flm finatic, PAcey, a lovable class clown, Joey, an ambitious but slightly self depricating girl, Jenn the wise one with a dark past, and Jack, the gay athlete are 5 people you want to get to know. The show is so 90s in every perfect way. The teenagers talk about real issues and the dialogue is witty and intelligent. It is a high school show, so after graduating high school, the show does go downhill. But the finale is beautifully done. It is a little dramatic but overall a real and relatable show. I wish shows like this existed today, but they don't.moreless

    Best teen drama of the late 90's! best coming of age show of all coming of age shows. Dawson's Creek managed to take the genre to another level, and no-one has yet managed to do it better.

    A Must Watch!
  • The best teen drama of the late 90's and early 00's to watch! The drama is about three friends and a new girl living in Capeside, MA. Jack and Andie McPhee arrived in Capeside in season 2. Andie left Capeside to visit her aunt in Italy.moreless

    I was a fan of the show in a long time, since high school. I was seventeen and a junior in high school, when the drama started. I was twenty-two, when the drama ended. I watched every season, when it started when the characters were fifteen year olds in high school and when they were in college. The series was filmed on location in Wilmington, North Carolina. I remember watching every season on dvd. One of my favorite characters on the show are Josephine "Joey" Potter and Dawson Leery. Dawson and Joey had the best chemistry in every episode. My favorite episode is "Detention", where the gang gets locked up in Saturday Detention, which is a take off of "The Breakfast Club". The show is now rerunning on TBS Superstation and The N respectively.moreless
