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.
