The CW announced today that Roswell, New Mexico has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just one day after the conclusion of its freshman run, which ultimately garnered mixed reviews.

The sci-fi drama premiered in January as a mid-season entry with somewhat of a familiar name. It is the second TV-adapted series of the 'Roswell High' book series by Melinda Metz; the first being 1999s Roswell, which ran for three seasons on The WB and UPN networks.

Roswell, New Mexico follows jaded biomedical researcher Liz Ortecho, who has recently returned to her hometown and reconnected with her high school crush Max. But Liz is surprised to learn that Max and his siblings are aliens who have spent their lives hiding their otherworldly abilities. And as they grow closer to, it gets harder for Liz to keep the truth from others. 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.

Today's renewal comes as The CW is firming up its lineup for next season. A total of 14 scripted series will be returning - with no cancellations for any of its freshman shows.

Look for Season 2 of Roswell, New Mexico as part of the 2019-2020 television season.
