'Roswell' Reboot in the Works at The CW

Roswell may be coming back to television - but with an update for the Trump era. According to recent reports from #The Hollywood Reporter, CW is now teaming up with the "Originals" producer, Carina McKenzie, on this upcoming reboot project.

Of that group of friends, three are alien/human hybrids trying to blend in.

The description of the new series says that it's about a woman who is the daughter of undocumented immigrants who reluctantly returns to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico - where she runs into her former crush who is now a police officer. While staying in town, she helps protect his secret while investigating his origins, but the alien presence on Earth is far larger than they knew, and, according to Variety, "the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance" as a government cover-up and violent attack come into play.

"#Roswell", a drama based on the Melinda Metz book "Roswell High", is going to have a #Reboot at the CW.

The original Roswell series debuted on the WB network in 1999 before moving to UPN for its third and final season. It launched the careers of its young stars Shiri Appleby (UnREAL), Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy), and Colin Hanks (Life In Pieces). Television, Amblin Television and Bender Brown Productions.

The only behind-the-scenes link between the original Roswell TV series and the Roswell reimagining will be executive producer Kevin Kelly Brown, who also filled the same role on the original series.

The CW is prepping a remake of its late 1990s and early 2000s sci-fi teen drama Roswell, but instead of a teen soap about high school drama, the concept is being reimagined as a timely immigration tale. The drama explored topics including forbidden love.
