In the fall of 1999, just a few weeks after the first episode of a little show called “Law & Order: SVU,” the WB started a show that was like a mix of “Dawson’s Creek” and “The X-Files.” It was based on the young adult books of Melinda Metz. “Roswell High” was a book series that Jason Katims turned into a TV show. It was about a group of Southwest teens, some of whom were aliens, and their problems. It started out as “Roswell” on the WB, but it didn’t last long there, just like Gina Matthews and Ryan Murphy’s “Popular.” It did, however, get a third season on UPN after leaving the teen-oriented, future CW (via Variety).
A little less than 20 years later, The CW started a new version of the supernatural show. This time, it was called “Roswell, New Mexico.”
The reboot, which was made by Carina Adly MacKenzie, quickly gained enough fans that it came back for a second and third season, no doubt in part because it was on Netflix. Now that the show’s shocking Season 3 finale is over, it’s time to look ahead and find out what fans can expect from Season 4.
Release Date Of Roswell, New Mexico Season 4
Deadline said in February 2021 that The CW had confirmed a fourth season of “Roswell, New Mexico.” This was about eight months before Season 3 started airing in October 2021. The New Mexico Film Office told KRWG in August of that year that filming for the fourth season would start that month and end in January of 2022. After months of rumors, the official release date for the season is June 6, 2022. (via Deadline).

The show will come back the same day as The CW’s “In the Dark,” which airs at 8 p.m. EST right before “In the Dark” (via TVLine). Since both shows started in 2019, they will be back on Netflix after their season finales, even though Netflix didn’t renew its contract with the network (via What’s on Netflix). Fans on the show’s subreddit, who had already started to plan a marathon of Seasons 1-3, we’re relieved to hear when the season would come out. But who can fans of the show expect to see or miss in the next season?
Cast Of Roswell, New Mexico Season 4
IMDb says that all of the main protagonists, antagonists, and recurring characters will be back for Season 4. Jeanine Mason will be back as biomedical researcher Liz Ortecho on “Roswell, New Mexico,” even though she also worked on “The Yellow Wallpaper,” which will be made into a TV show in 2021, and Blair Underwood’s “Viral,” which is in post-production. Lily Cowles will be back as Isobel, who is secretly from another planet. Heather Hemmens and Nathan Dean Parsons will be back as bartenders Maria DeLuca and Deputy Max Evans, respectively. In the 1999 series, Jason Behr played Deputy Max Evans.
Tyler Blackburn (Alex Manes), Michael Trevino (Kyle Valenti), and Amber Midthunder (Rosa Ortecho) will also be back, though Midthunder is only listed as being in nine of Season 4’s 12 episodes. Last September, Deadline announced that “Grown-ish” star Zoe Cipres and “The Originals” actor Andrew Lees would also join the Season 4 cast as Bonnie and Clyde, two famous bank robbers. Executive producer Chris Hollier told TV Line that “Roswell” veteran Shiri Appleby would be back for Season 4. This may be the most exciting news for fans of the original show. But he wouldn’t say anything about what her role was.
Plot Of Roswell, New Mexico Season 4
The end of Season 3 of “Roswell, New Mexico” left viewers with a lot of questions. At least a few of these questions will be answered in Season 4. Who is the woman who is looking for Liz? Is she a sky person? There’s also the question of how Appleby’s character, a woman named Allie who says she was Liz’s former teacher, fits into the story. Hollier hasn’t said anything about who either woman really is, but in an interview with TV Line, he did talk about what will happen to other characters in the next season.
Even though Liz and Max finally kissed, Hollier said that the road ahead will be rough.

“One of our other goals,” he told the outlet, “was to give the characters a little more depth and new problems to deal with.” Even if you’re in love and find the person you want to spend your life with, that doesn’t mean everything is always rainbows. As you get older, you face new challenges.” Hollier also said that the bad guy Jones, who was also played by Nathan Dean Parsons, is finally gone, but his legacy lives on. “Jones won’t be our villain anymore,” he said, “because we’ve moved on to other stories, but he had a big impact.” There are many things to deal with.” Lastly, the executive producer hinted that there might be problems in other relationships on the show and even hinted that Kyle and Isobel might get together. It’s clear that Season 4 of The CW’s reboot will have even more twists, turns, and mysteries.
