5 Truths about the Gilmore Girls, Dawson's Creek reunions

Deirdre still can't believe SheKnows pays her to do what she loves. She began telling stories before she could even write. Once someone gave her a pen, there was no prying it away; so a degree in journalism was the only thing that made s...

Don't get too stoked — the Dawson's Creek and Gilmore Girls reunions aren't perfect yet

We're certain that Lorelai Gilmore would say that today is magical. Not only is it snowing across most of the country, but we've also just learned that Gilmore Girls and Dawson's Creek are both confirmed for a reunion. We have all the deets.

1) If you wanna see it, you'll have to travel

The reunions are all going down in Austin, Texas, at the ATX Television Festival's Season 4 Fest. This isn't like PaleyFest, though: It's open to the public. And it's not nearly as huge as Comic-Con, so no insanely massive crowds or hideously complicated ticket buying process. Sweet!

Remember the Full House reunion? Still our favorite!

2) You'll have to wait a while, though

The ATV Fest doesn't happen until June. So, while you have about six months to wait, we consider that six months of binge-watching your favorite girls and boys once or twice more before getting the chance to see them in person.

3) The confirmed talent pool is still small for Gilmore Girls

So far, only two Stars Hollow residents have been confirmed for the event. But don't worry, they're your favorite girls: Lauren Graham (Lorelai!) and Alexis Bledel (Rory!) are confirmed so far, but we think more will show up. Only a few months ago, the gang of residents who made up Lane's band Hep Alien reunited for a quick gig. The show's creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is also on board. We want plenty of real, true inside from Graham and Bledel, but we'd love if they channeled their characters for a while and Sherman-Palladino wrote some awesome new dialogue. Wishful thinking? Probably.

Party like it's '00!

4) So far, no acting talent is confirmed for Dawson's Creek

Don't be disappointed, though. We're sure the Dawson's Creek panel will be good. This panel focuses on the writers and will include Kevin Williamson and showrunner Greg Berlanti (now working on The Flash). It will also include a full lineup of the other talented writers who helped shape the show: Julie Plec, Jenny Bicks, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke, Dana Baratta and Gina Fattore.

5) That means there's a chance to ask questions for other shows, too

Take a look at the list of names again. Among that massive list are some of today's most impressive TV writers and creators. They're working on so many of our other favorite shows, like The Flash, The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Veronica Mars, Life Unexpected, Everwood, Witches of East End and The Originals.

Get ready, TV nerds — this is going to be one seriously awesome event.
