Roswell reboot in the works at The CW with Trump-era twist

Roswell reboot in the works at The CW as sci-fi immigration drama

Variety reports that the network behind other reboots like Dynasty is meant to provide a modern update to the story, focusing on the daughter of undocumented immigrants who returns to her hometown - Roswell, New Mexico.

The TV drama "Roswell, " which included future stars Katherine Heigl, Shiri Appleby and Emilie de Ravin among its cast, was initially canceled after its first season in 1999, but the show's young fans saved it by sending scores of mini bottles of Tabasco sauce to The WB.

According to a news item from The Hollywood Reporter, the CW is reviving the turn-of-the-century series Roswell with a fresh adaptation of the Roswell High books by Melinda Metz, on which the original series was based.

Per Variety, as they attempt to track down his origins, an attack and government cover-up prove that there is more of an alien presence on Earth than they could have ever imagined. There's no word yet on when this new take on Roswell might hit the airwaves. The story itself also seems unconnected to the narrative from the original series. The show ran for only three seasons before ending in 2002. Once there, she finds out that her former crush, who's now a police office, happens to be an alien.

No word yet on when the show will return, but we do know the updated series will be keeping things current by taking on a very different, very timely issue: The protagonist is the daughter of undocumented immigrants.
