James Van Der Beek reunited with his "Dawson's Creek" TV mom Mary-Margaret Humes


In 1998 every American teenager was watching a new series called "Dawson's Creek" and enjoying the fictional lives of the characters.

James Van Der Beek played the lead as Dawson Leery, and his fictional mother and father were played by Mary-Margaret Humes and John Wesley Shipp in the hit show that ran between 1998 and 2003.

In March 2018, the cast got together for the show's 20th anniversary but Humes and Shipp were not included or invited.

Now Humes' screen son has made it up to her in a sweet "mother and son" reunion, and she shared that special moment on Instagram.


‘Okay, so let me get this off my chest as the initial hurt has subsided just a bit...’

Mary-Margaret Humes, Instagram, 29th of March 2018.

Ex-teen star and screen mom happy together.

Humes set her hurt aside and enjoyed a warm and joyful reunion with her TV son and the 41-year old actor shared a delightful photo of the two of them on Instagram.

Humes, now 64, reposted the photograph on her Instagram account and captioned it: 'The smile on my face...#authentic. The love in my heart for this amazing soul...#unconditional.'

She went on to praise Van Der Beek describing him as "the very handsome and talented @vanderjames #nofilter #nomakeup #noworries a true #dawsonscreek moment...in real time #loveneverdies."

The coffee date between the two actors came nearly 15 years after the final episode of "Dawson's Creek."


Life after "Dawson's Creek"

Humes played Gail Leery on the show for six seasons, and has since then guested on many hit series such as "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", "CSI: NY", "Grey's Anatomy", "Criminal Minds" and "Saving Grace".

Van Der Beek has been building his career with starring roles in "Mercy", "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23", "CSI: Cyber" and "Pose".

Katie Holmes, who played his best friend, went on to become a Hollywood A-lister and was married to Tom Cruise.
