The classic TV drama, Dawson’s Creek, which first aired on The WB back in that day, will finally be coming to Netflix on November 1st, the company announced on Twitter. Netflix acquired the streaming rights to the drama, and all 128 episodes are included in the acquisition.
Dawson’s Creek was created by Kevin Williamson and is a teen coming-of-age drama that aired between 1998 and 2003. The cast included James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, and Mary-Margaret Humes.
There Are Some Changes
Weirdly enough, Netflix will not be playing the drama’s classic song “I Don’t Want to Wait” by Paula Cole as its theme song. Instead, the theme song will be “Run Like Mad” by Jann Arden, which is the show’s original theme song internationally.
Currently, Dawson’s Creek calls Hulu its streaming home, but now fans are wondering if their beloved show will be a Netflix exclusive only now. Hulu did mark Dawnson’s Creek as a “leaving Hulu this month” show, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t return to the streaming platform, especially since Netflix and Hulu do share some other shows.
Will We See More?
With Dawson’s Creek coming to Netflix, classic The WB fans have their fingers crossed that other favorites from The WB will also appear on Netflix. Sony Pictures owns Dawson’s Creek, but other titles from The WB are owned by Warner Brothers, who are a little less likely to license their library out.
Dawson’s Creek isn’t the only show from Sony that Netflix has acquired either. In recent years the streaming service has seen shows like Outlander and the entire library of Community grace their services, and next year Seinfeld and its library will stream on Netflix.
Adding Dawson’s Creek to Netflix service will help fill the gap that COVID-19 is leaving in relatable shows. Currently, the original lineup and shows are disrupted and not able to film due to the restrictions that COVID-19 has caused. By adding Dawson’s Creek to Netflix, they filled that hole that was left for many viewers.
Young Americans, a spinoff of Dawson’s Creek, isn’t yet on the lineup to join Netflix, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be in the feature. So far, regions that are confirmed to get the show include:
- United States
- United Kingdom
You can start streaming the first episode of Dawson’s Creek on Netflix on November 1st; try not to binge the entire series in one weekend.
