Based on the Roswell High book series, itv2’s new drama Roswell, New Mexico is a love story, a relationship drama and the story of a small town…which happens to have aliens.
More than maybe anywhere else on Earth, Roswell is ground zero for those who seek proof that aliens exist. Roswell local Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) left it all behind 10 years ago after the death of her beloved older sister Rosa. But after the Government cuts funding on her biomedical research, she reluctantly returns to her hometown to move back in with her father.
When Liz arrives she reconnects with Max Evans (Nathan Dean Parsons), her teenage crush who is now a Roswell police officer. Their chemistry is instantly electric but Liz soon discovers a shocking truth: Max is an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life, along with those of his sister Isobel and their friend Michael. Meanwhile, a long-standing government conspiracy will threaten to expose Max and his family and could endanger his deepening romance with Liz….as well as their lives.
The new series stars Jeanine Mason (Grey’s Anatomy), Nathan Dean Parsons (The Originals), Michael Vlamis (New Girl), Lily Cowles (BrainDead), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Heather Hemmens (Hellcats), Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries), Trevor St. John (Containment) and Karan Oberoi (NCIS).
