Variety reports The CW is reviving Roswell. The one-hour drama “would follow the daughter of undocumented immigrants who reluctantly returns to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. There she 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.”
Like the original Roswell series, which aired from 1999-2001, it’ll be based on the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz. The WB/UPN teen drama starred Shiri Appleby, Katherine Heigl, Nick Wechsler, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr and Colin Hanks.
