James Van Der Beek and his family are leaving their home in Los Angeles and heading off to “the next big adventure.”

On Wednesday, the former “Dawson’s Creek” star shared some family photos on Instagram, including some of the family inside an empty house with all the furnishings cleared out.

“Sometimes a fuller life begins with an empty house. Leaving Los Angeles incredibly grateful for all the friends and memories we’ve made here. Onto the next big adventure,” he wrote in the caption.

In an interview last month with “The Get Down” podcast, the actor’s wife, Kimberly Van Der Beek, revealed that the family was exiting L.A. and heading to Texas, admitting that “we’re moving to Texas… Outside of Austin.”

As she explained, “I think we’re in a time right now where people are wanting to ground themselves a little bit more into nature. And L.A. has been a magical place for many years for me. So much life has been lived here. I’m going to go through a process to leave. I mean I birthed three kids in the home I’m living in in particular. But you know, I gotta get out of the concrete jungle for a little bit.”

In a new Instagram post, Van Der Beek opened up about the reasons behind their decision to make the move.

“In the last 10 months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put Kimberly in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumour (the doctor was wrong, thank God),” he explained. “A business colleague I hired hijacked the project and stabbed me in the back, I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favoured to win in front of the whole world, my mom died, and a shut-down.”

He added, “All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities… and landed us here. Overflowing with profound gratitude today.”

In a previous Instagram post, apparently sent from California’s Joshua Tree National Park, he shared some more photos and some philosophical remarks.

“There’s so much to be upset about right now. To all my activist friends – especially the ones fighting for causes that aren’t elective for them – be sure to take care of yourself,” he wrote.

“Get out in nature. Invest some time and energy in the people who love you. Remind yourself that there is still a goodness and order within this existence that transcends politics, skin pigmentation, man-made systems, viruses, and anything else that might generate a push notification to your phone,” he added. “Then keep fighting the good fight. But be sure to love yourself first… enough to maintain a connection with what moves you and loves you back.”
