A drama following rising tension in a small town where aliens live among humans.


Liz Ortecho is a jaded biomedical researcher who has recently returned to her hometown of Roswell to care for her ill father after being away for over 10 years.

Her arrival allows her to reconnect with her high school crush Max Evans, who now works as a police officer. But Liz is surprised to learn that Max and his siblings are aliens who have spent their lives hiding their otherworldly abilities.

As Liz grows closer to Max, it gets harder for her to keep the truth from her other friends. But concealing the siblings' true identities is crucial, as a long-running government conspiracy and the politics of fear and hatred put their lives at risk.

Love the show but the finale seems to be the end, I hope I'm wrong!

It did start out slowly but picked up halfway through this season. I am not bothered by the PC story elements or the politics. They reflect our current social and political climate.

Shiri Appleby (Liz Parker in the original Roswell Series) directed Episode 9. I thought it was one of the best.

Please renew this show. It deserves a shot at success.

So many angry conservatives! I LOVE the politics because just like MANY other shows it is addressing real world problems that too many choose to either ignore or only see one side of. I LOVE the diversity because guess what, that is what the world actually looks like! I LOVE the twists and turns that advance this story differently than the original series. I was hooked on episode one, and I will watch every episode available going forward. I'm hoping and crossing my fingers for a season 2 and beyond!

The show is only now getting interesting. But would be a whole lot better if it stuck with the alien concept. Leave out all the gay alien crap. It would be so much better without that and politics. I get enough politics as is. I don't want or need it here.

Story has picked up. At first it moved too slow. Now its definitely gotten more interesting. Itsa certainly not the original Roswell, but it has its strong points.

Immigration, homosexuality and other politically correct crap -who knew, right? When I'm up to it I'll watch the original "Roswell" (1999-2002) on DVD. At least it had a believable story. As a right-winger, I say to the CW today, go stick it someplace where the sun doesn't shine.

I feel like hollywood has ruined the Charmed reboot and this reboot by trying to be politically correct and diverse. I am over this show and I was really looking forward to it.

Jury is still out on whether I like this reboot. Loved the original and the books so I was a little leery of any reboots, especially on the CW. So far, it's not bad. Some episodes are a little slow. Unlike, apparently, many others, I do not have a problem with two of the characters being gay. The actors playing them bring a lot of chemistry on screen - far more that between the straight characters. Looking forward to how this plays out.

I like this show somewhat but all the liberal immigration crap and the homosexual scenes are not working. Good luck getting a season 2.....smh

Tonight's show (3/5/19 - S1 E7) was it for us. Really wanted this show to be successful, but it was ruined with all the illegal immigration stuff and personal angst. I wanted to ALIENS (little green men - or at least alien superpowers) -- not some undocumented Hollywood left-wing garbage.

Way to ruin a reboot!!
