Eight of the stars from Dawson's Creek reunited earlier this week for a photo shoot but two other important cast, Mary-Margaret Humes and John Wesley Shipp, missed out on the event because they were not informed about it.
It was nostalgic to see Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, and Michelle Williams, to name a few, reminisce on their Dawson's Creek years during a photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly. However, it would have been a complete reunion had Humes and Shipp, who played Dawson's parents, been at the shoot as well.
As it turns out, the actors were not even aware of the reunion. Responding to messages of support and love from fans following the overlook, Humes revealed that she and Shipp were "literally blindsided" by it when they woke up in New York and Los Angeles, respectively. She admitted that she was hurt but accepted the fact that it was the publication's choice and not theirs.
"We both did a short telephone interview after the fact but were never told about the reunion," Humes wrote in a lengthy post alongside a throwback photo of her and Shipp from Dawson's Creek.
It was obviously a disappointment for the actress who has been sharing behind-the-scenes photos from her six years in the WB series.
"We were a #family & I know how much the photos mean to you from all the love you send me in comments...Yes, I do read them. Having said that... I will continue to post because yes, I have so much more to share," Humes continued.

However, the 63-year-old Humes holds no ill feelings toward the cast who got to meet each other after many years. Humes expressed her congratulations and happiness to see them all together.
"For the portion of our family that did appear in these photos...congratulations...you look great and I love you," she said, adding that it would have been better if she had told them her message personally.
Humes admitted that it was a shame that she never got to tell it to their faces during the Dawson's Creek reunion. Shipp, on the other hand, took the situation in jest. He reposted a fan edit of one of the photos that show the eight stars together. Instead this time, he and Humes are in the group shot, standing behind Jackson.

Dawson's Creek ran from 1998 to 2003 and ended with six seasons. Fans have been clamoring for a reboot although there has been no word from the creators yet. Humes is hopeful though that it will happen.
