According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The CW is going back to Roswell.
The network is teaming with The Originals producer Carina MacKenzie for a timely reboot based on the Melinda Metz book Roswell High that also spawned the Jason Katims drama.
The project, which is in development at the younger-skewing network, has an immigrant twist. Here's the official 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."
Roswell was one of my original fandoms before I even knew there was such a thing. Jason Behr was one of my first fake boyfriends. The show even has a place in my marriage—my husband first asked me to go out with him in high school after the episode “Summer of ‘47” aired. (And he bought me a shooting script for our first anniversary. I found myself a great one, y’all.)
So to say that I’m excited about the idea of a new Roswell is a bit of an understatement, but that excitement is tempered with a bit of fear. Basically, this is me right now:
My one wish, currently? I hope that the showrunners take a page out of Riverdale’s casting book and bring back the original cast as Hot Parents.
