The show – based on a series of young adult books – was about a group of high schoolers, half of them regular teens, and half aliens from the crash, masquerading as teens to stay safe.
The basic plotline of the first Twilight book was taken from Roswell. In both stories the hero uses his powers to save the heroine’s life, therefore revealing his true identity to her. In both stories hero and heroine are biology lab partners and she has to cover up the fact he isn’t human. Etc. Only, this heroine is SO much stronger, and this hero is NOT a creepy stalker.
Now? They’re remaking Roswell, due out in 2019. You can see the new cast HERE.
I’m not sure I want to see this remake. Recently Hollywood hasn’t met an old show they don’t want to do a remake of. I wish they’d let cult shows be cult shows, and come up with something new!
A side note: I used to take ballet classes with one of the stars of the original Roswell TV series, so I feel a little protective of it!
