The CW announced today that Roswell, New Mexico has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes early, as the sci-fi drama won't be returning for its already-ordered sophomore run until March.

The series premiered last 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.

Look for Season 3 of Roswell, New Mexico as part of the 2020-2021 TV season.
