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.

Unless something changes, this show is going downhill fast. I get that they want to drag it out, but at least make something happen! Too wishy-washy.

This version is pretty solid , i do not care if they now have a gay character. Hope this one lasts.

Pretty much every SJW, LGBTQ box was ticked in the first episode.

Extra 'liberal agenda' points must go to the show's PC agenda for making the armed service person both gay and disabled. Do the show's writers get double points for ticking two boxes with one character?

I saw the show while visiting family from the UK (Don't worry Donald, I've no plan to stay beyond my visa) and I have fond memories of the original Roswell show so had hoped for better from this reboot sadly it appears it just wasn't to be, much the same as I found with the Charmed reboot.

I came back to change my 2 rating to a 1 rating, because its the lowest I can go. They made Michael GAY, really... GAY?

10 min 56 sec into the very first episode and they already made 3 stupid political statements about Donald Trump. I get it, Hollywood hates him, MOVE ON!! Cant we just get one show to escape the political bullshit from and enjoy just because we want to be entertained???

Saw the original version and was looking forward to the reboot. In the first 10 minutes there was so much hatred expressed toward our president and half of our nation it was disgusting.

To each their own. Liked the show until they had the gay seen, it turned my stomach to watch it. Will watch it to see what happens but to put in the gay men just went to far. Maybe the writers are gay?

Well, now that I've seen it, I'm convinced they set out to "alienate" all of the fans of the original series. The new Liz and Max have zero chemistry, I could not even muster the interest in connecting with Liz. She has a massive chip on her shoulder and just seems angry and vengeful. The remaining characters who were well written in the original were weak and lifeless. Honestly, I have doubts I'll even watch a second episode.

Sounds likely to be dumb but maybe not so I’ll try an episode or two.

Really liked the original so I'm looking forward to this reboot
