Dawson's Creek Is Coming To Netflix Australia And New Zealand On 1 November
More than 17 years after the final episode first aired, audiences Down Under will get to relive all the highs and lows from Dawson's Creek.
The legendary show will be coming to Netflix Australia and New Zealand at the beginning of next month and fans couldn't be happier.
The streaming service unveiled the news on social media, writing: "In the words of Pacey Witter, I remember everything. And I can't wait to revisit it all."
The American teen drama series was iconic in its heyday and ran from 1997 to 2003. Who could forget Paula Cole's theme song, 'I Don't Want To Wait'?

Film assistant Kevin Williamson came up with the idea for the show in the '90s and based it around his own adolescence, having grown up near a North Carolina creek.
After his first meeting with a studio executive, he was asked to come back and pitch it to Columbia TriStar Television, where he arrived with a 20-page deep dive into what he thought Dawson's Creek could be.
He ended up saying his vision for the show was Some Kind of Wonderful meets Pump Up the Volume, meets James at 15, meets My So-Called Life, meets Little House on the Prairie... with a little bit of Beverly Hills, 90210.
It was controversial for its time because of its racy plot lines and inclusion of sex scenes.
The Parents Television Council said Dawson's Creek was the 'single worst program' of the 1997-98 TV season, as well as the 1998-99 season.
The council said it was 'the crudest of the network shows aimed at kids', said it had an 'almost obsessive focus on pre-marital sexual activity' and made too many references to porn and condoms. Incredibly, the group also criticised the show for condoning homosexuality.
Well, if you want to relive all that drama all over again then you can get ready on 1 November.
