This Week in Sci Fi TV: Roswell, Amazing Stories Reboots in the Works, Gillian Anderson Done With X-Files, and More

The CW is considering returning to Roswell, the cult-favorite series based on the Roswell High books that aired for three seasons on The WB and UPN (the two networks that eventually merged to become The CW). The network has a reboot of the series in development that will focus heavily on immigration themes. Deadline Hollywood gives the following description:

The new ‘Roswell’ reflects the realities of its location in a state bordering Mexico. After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, NM, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

Carina Adly MacKenzie (The Originals) is writing and executive producing the project and the network will likely be considering this for their 2018-19 schedule.
