CW’s sci-fi drama Roswell, New Mexico is over halfway through season 3, so will there be season 4? Here’s everything we know, including the new cast and possible release date.
Starring Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons and Michael Vlamis, The CW’s Roswell, New Mexico is an adaptation of the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz.
Jeanine plays Liz Ortecho, the daughter of undocumented immigrants who returns to her hometown Roswell, New Mexico. She reconnects with her teenage crush Max Evans (Nathan Parsons), who is now a police officer. However, she discovers his well-kept identity of alien and he has been burying his unearthly powers.
In season 3, Max comes face to face with an alien-lookalike, prompting him to uncover who the figure is.
With aliens in the mix, Roswell, New Mexico is open for extensive plotlines, so will CW continue the show into season 4?
