The old TV series, Roswell (featuring Dido’s Here with Me as its theme song) is getting a reboot. The series, which is now called Roswell, New Mexico is currently filming through January 2019 in Las Vegas and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Warner Bros. Television has invested in the series which is produced by My So-Called Company, Amblin Television and Bender Brown Productions. It will air on the CW Network in 2019.
Like the original series, Roswell, New Mexico will be based on the Roswell High book series, with some key differences, which was written by Melinda Metz. Here’s how the series is described by Warner Bros.:
After reluctantly returning to her 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.
If that sounds a little different from the Max and Liz story the first Roswell series told, that’s because it is. To give the show a different vibe, the writers and producers decided to make all the characters adults instead of high school students. Here’s a look at the trailer:
Liz, a jaded biomedical researcher and the daughter of illegal immigrants, will be played by Jeanine Mason. Her love interest, Max, is being played by Nathan Parsons. In this version, Max is a Roswell police officer who has successfully maintained his real identity for years. Two other aliens, Isobel and Michael, are being played by Lily Cowles and Michael Vlamis.
“We’re very pleased to have Roswell shooting in the city and surrounding areas of Santa Fe,” said Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber. “Warner Bros. in particular has been a long and trusted partner as we’ve built this industry in the region, so we are happy to keep building that partnership and creating jobs in our community.”
It’s likely that future seasons will also film in Santa Fe and surrounding areas.
