AceShowbiz - It's been two decades since "Dawson's Creek" characters gave laughter through their story. In honor of The WB series' 20th anniversary, star %cJames Van Der Beek% takes to his Instagram account to share a #TBT photo and get fans nostalgic.

The 40-year-old actor, who portrays Dawson Leery on the classic teen series, posts a photo of himself and other three main stars of the series. Featured in the photo are %cKatie Holmes% who played Joey Potter, %cJoshua Jackson% who played Pacey Witter, and %cMichelle Williams% who played Jen Lindley.

"#tbt Squad '97. I'd known these people all of 7 days when this pic was taken," James writes in the caption. "20 years ago this week the little pilot we shot in that small town for that fledgling network aired, changed our lives and launched our careers."

He later thanks "the Wilmington, North Carolina crew and community who raised us & kept us sane, thank you to the many talented writers and producers who gave of your hearts talents and put up with us. And thank you especially to the fans of the show."

He continues writing, "It's a funny relationship we have... your experience of this project is what you saw on camera, while my memories are mostly what I experienced off of it. And yes, it's true that I haven't seen most episodes (it became healthier at a certain point to just commit 100|percent| on the day and let it go completely), but the beauty of this arrangement is that my impression of the show now is what you've all reflected back to me over the years... and it's been lovely to witness."

"So thank you to anyone who's ever expressed appreciation for the work we did - it makes me feel proud to be associated with these three fine people (and the rest of the cast), and proud to have been a part of #DawsonsCreek," he ends his post by giving a shout-out to the fans of the fan-favorite series. "This one will always have a special little place in my heart."
