It's been fifteen years since Roswell concluded its three-season run on the WB and UPN. Now, according to Deadline, The CW is going to reboot the cult sci-fi series.
According to the report, Roswell will be "an hourlong reimagining of the 1999 series. Like the original, the new version is based on the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz." The series is being written and executive produced by The Originals scribe Carina Adly MacKenzie. Here are the details that have been revealed:
The new Roswell reflects the realities of its location in a state bordering Mexico. After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, NM, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.
I never really watched Roswell when it was on. I saw a few episodes but I never closely followed it. If you were a fan of the series, what do you think about the series being revived after all these years?
The new Roswell series is being produced by Amblin Television, Bender Brown Productions, and Warner Bros. TV.
