The CW is rebooting cancelled sci-fi drama Roswell for the 2018-19 season.
The network has put in an initial pilot order for its planned Roswell series, which is described as follows:
Logline: After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, 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.
Executive Producer/Writer: Carina Adly MacKenzie
Executive Producers: Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank (Amblin Television); Lawrence Bender, Kevin Kelly Brown.
Based on the Roswell High book series, by Melinda Metz
The original Roswell survived three seasons on The WB and UPN from 1999 to 2002.
