Developed by Carina Adly MacKenzie, The CW’s ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ is a science fiction drama that follows Liz Ortecho as she returns to her eponymous hometown and comes to the shocking realization that the boy she liked in high school is an alien who has managed to protect his identity all these years from the rest of the world. She resolves to help him out, and in the process, they end up developing feelings for each other.

Their lives are further exposed to danger and threat when the presence of a more powerful alien alliance is detected. The show is adapted from the ‘Roswell High’ book series by Melinda Metz. Since its inception on January 15, 2019, the sci-fi series has completed three seasons which makes us entertain the possibility of another one.

The CW’s Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz focused on maintaining stability against the disruptive impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on production and development. He declared, “Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season.”
