Roswell, New Mexico is a science-fiction drama television series that premiered on The CW in 2019. The show is based on the "Roswell High" book series written by Melinda Metz. The series is a reimagination of the Roswell television series from the early 2000s. The show follows the life of Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason), a biomedical researcher who returns to her hometown in Roswell, New Mexico to take care of her sick father.

Once she returns to Roswell, she encounters her teenage crush and former flame, Max Evans (Nathan Parsons), who she learns is an alien. Max, along with his siblings Isobel (Lily Cowles) and Michael (Michael Vlamis), were orphaned as children and were taken in by a human family. Their existence in Roswell has been a secret until Liz stumbled upon the truth. Liz and Max's reunion reignites old feelings, but their relationship is hindered by Max's extraterrestrial secret and the government's pursuit of him.

As the series progresses, we learn more about Max, Isobel, and Michael's origin on Earth and their powers. Max has the ability to heal any injury, Isobel can manipulate people's minds, and Michael can control technology. The trio's origins are tied to an incident in 1947 when a UFO crashed in Roswell. The show explores themes of aliens and government conspiracies, family dynamics, and love stories.

Alongside the central storyline of Max, Isobel, and Michael's identities being exposed, there are also subplots involving other characters from Roswell. Liz's ex-boyfriend, Kyle Valenti (Michael Trevino), is a doctor and the son of the town's sheriff. He becomes conflicted about his role in keeping Max's secret and his loyalty to his father. Liz's best friend, Maria (Heather Hemmens), is a musician who becomes involved in uncovering the truth about Max, Isobel, and Michael.

The show also introduces new characters in the later seasons, including Alex Manes (Tyler Blackburn), a military veteran who is Max's former lover. Alex also becomes involved in the government conspiracy and works to uncover the truth. Additionally, Rosa (Amber Midthunder), Max's and Isobel's long-lost sister, is introduced in the second season. Her return creates tension and challenges for Max and Isobel's relationship.

Roswell, New Mexico is a compelling television show that balances science-fiction elements with emotional human drama. The writing and cinematography are of high quality, and the show's pacing keeps viewers engaged. The acting performances of the show's ensemble cast are commendable, with standout performances from Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons. The show deals with themes of love, identity, and belonging, making it relatable to a wide audience.

Overall, Roswell, New Mexico is a must-watch for fans of science-fiction and drama shows. The show's unique take on the Roswell story and its engaging characters make for an entertaining and thought-provoking viewing experience.
