The three characters gave us one of the most popular TV love triangles of the day that still remains a hot topic among fans all these years later. Premiering in 1998, Dawson’s Creek ran for six seasons before ending in 2003. Michelle Williams, Busy Philipps, and Kerr Smith also starred in the series.
