A reboot of the fan favorite series Roswell has received a pilot order from The CW!
The pilot for the one-hour drama series with an immigration theme was written by The Originals‘ Carina Adly MacKenzie.
Here is the reboot’s synopsis (via THR): “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.”
Other pilots that were ordered by The CW include Greg Berlanti and Robbie Rogers‘ Spencer and the previously announced Supernatural spinoff, a Charmed reboot, and more. Read all about the other shows on THR.com!
