New Roswell, New Mexico trailer teases epic romance
A month ahead of the extraterrestrial drama’s premiere, The CW has released the first trailer for Roswell, New Mexico teasing a love story of dangerous proportions and a mystery behind the titular town that threatens to change the whole world. Check out the trailer in the player below!
Carina Adly MacKenzie (The Originals) will executive produce and write the one-hour drama, based on the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz. The executive producers also include Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Lawrence Bender, and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was an executive producer on the original series.
The synopsis reads as follows: “After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, 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.”
The Roswell, New Mexico reboot will premiere on January 15, after the midseason premiere of The Flash.
