Little Fires Everywhere showrunner Liz Tigelaar spilled a lot about the finale of the Hulu series, including that there could’ve been a Dawson’s Creek reunion.
Speaking with THR, Liz shared that there was one cameo that didn’t happen but she really wanted it to.
“I wanted to put Kerr Smith in so bad,” she says. However, the only way she could put him in was in a scene with Joshua Jackson.
She adds, “I thought it was going to be too distracting for Jack and Pacey to be reunited…I felt so bad about it, Kerr was like ‘really?’ I was like ‘I know, but it’s Josh!’”
Liz continued that if that reunion had happened, everything else that was going on would be pushed aside.
“Everyone’s going to be taken out of it. Josh has already been in his tighty-whities. So much has happened,” she explained. “It’s going to be jarring. It’s going to be like, ‘Jack’s here?’”
“Dawson’s Creek was my first job. My heart couldn’t handle it, either.”
If you didn’t hear, Joshua just welcomed his first child with wife Jodie Turner-Smith.
