It’s been fifteen years since Roswell first ended its run on the WB and UPN after a successful three seasons. Now, the CW has good news for fans across the globe - they’re bringing the cult sci-fi series back to life.
Leading the charge that has fans racing to mark their calendars is Lawrence Bender. A producer with decades of some of the world’s favorite films credited to his name, Bender is executive producing the series alongside Kevin Kelly Brown, an EP on the original series, and co-production partners from Amblin TV.
The original Roswell series was developed, produced and co-written by Jason Katims, who has since gone on to create shows including Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, About A Boy and Rise. The show first debuted in October 1999 and continued on until May 2002.
