    TV Guide reported that Heather Graham was not invited back for the Twin Peaks revival, for reasons that aren't clear. "It seems like something bad happened to [my character], because I am not in the second series, so I don't know if she died," Graham said to TV Guide when speculating about where Annie would be now.

  • John Wesley Shipp


    John Wesley Shipp played Dawson Leery's dad for five seasons of Dawson's Creek, but he didn't get an invite to the Entertainment Weekly reunion cover shoot last year. Shipp seemed pretty bummed by the lack of invite, especially since he was even in New York where they shot it. He tried to poke a little fun at the situation by photo editing himself into the cast reunion photo, which he then posted to his Instagram account.

  • Mary-Margaret Humes


    Like her TV husband, Dawson's mom (played by Mary-Margaret Humes) also wasn't at the Entertainment Weekly cover shoot for the Dawson's Creek reunion, according to Us Weekly. She took to Instagram to share her feelings on the matter, which were clearly hurt.

    "This was their choice...not ours," Humes said about not being included in the photo. "It was done behind our backs and we both were literally blindsided by it when we woke up yesterday ... For the portion of our family that did appear in these photos...congratulations...you look great and I love you...I only wish I had been given the opportunity to have said it to your faces. Such a shame."

  • Jaimee Foxworth

    Entertainment Weekly didn't just snub the Dawson's Creek stars. The outlet also didn't include Jaimee Foxworth, who played Judy, in the 2017 Family Matters reunion cover. She told The Root that she was pretty upset when she found out. "I was not invited at all. I wasn’t even contacted," she said. Jaimee added that she only even found out about the shoot because her co-star Shawn Waldo texted her two days before the magazine's release so that she wouldn't be blindsided.

  • Eliza Dushku


    In another Entertainment Weekly cover story reunion -- this time for Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2017 -- Eliza Dushku says she was left out of the photo shoot, according to Us Weekly. However, the actress, who played Faith on the show, seemed to understand the decision. She tweeted, "Faith/I was never a series regular cast member on btvs, sweeties=no invite. Cute n special reunion tho."

  • Amanda Bynes

    TMZ reported that Amanda Bynes was not invited to the 2016 televised cast reunion of All That. Before she got her own Nickelodeon show, Bynes got her start on All That. But, sources told TMZ that she didn't even know about the cast reunion until the trailers went up online.


  • Daniel Clark


    In 2018, Drake dropped a music video for his song, "I'm Upset" featuring a ton of his former Degrassi: The Next Generation cast mates. One person who didn't get an invite? Daniel Clark who played Sean Cameron on the show. Page Six reported that Clark was super bummed by his absence.

    "It sucks because it would have been great to see everybody," he said. "It looked like everyone was having a great time, but for me, it was kind of sad too, because we were all really like family."

  • Mike Lobel


    Drake left another familiar face out of his music video. Mike Lobel, who played Jay Hogart in Degrassi: The Next Generation, said in the same Page Six article that he was also not given an invite. He was marginally less upset than Clark. "Yeah I honestly don’t have much to say on it, I wasn’t invited to the shoot," Lobel said. "I love Aubrey [Drake's real name] and think he’s a great guy, everyone looked great in the video and I wish I could have been there to hang out with the crew."

    Maybe next time.

  • Alexa Nikolas


    In July, the Zoey 101 cast reunited and hinted at plans for a reboot. However, one face was missing, because Alexa Nikolas says she wasn't even invited. The Revelist reported that Alexa, who played Nicole on the show, was pretty hurt by her exclusion. "Why am I left out still? Lol it's kind of hilarious now. We are like 30 years old. Wowza," she commented on one of the reunion videos. 

    If she wasn't at the reunion, it's probably safe to say that her character won't be on the rebooted show either.

    We'll miss ya.
