“We are happy to welcome Warner Bros. back for a third season of Roswell, New Mexico. New Mexico's treasure trove of locations and large, talented crew base supports television shows like Roswell to return and shoot season after season in our beautiful state,” said Amber Dodson, New Mexico Film Office Director

Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Christopher Hollier (Once Upon a Time), Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (The Americans), Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction) and Kevin Kelly Brown (Roswell).
Roswell, New Mexico is based on the Roswell High book series, written by Melinda Metz.
After reluctantly returning to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush, who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.
