Roswell, New Mexico wrapped up its third season back in October 2021. But with the recent bloodbath of cancellations at The CW, some fans are probably asking the question “Will there be a fourth season of Roswell?”
Has Roswell, New Mexico been renewed for season 4?
The CW renewed the series for season 4 ahead of the show’s season 3 premiere in July 2021. Officially announced by the network in February 2021, Roswell, New Mexico season 4 started filming last August and wrapped principal photography in January 2022.
How many seasons of Roswell are there?
There will only be four seasons of Roswell, New Mexico, as the sci-fi drama was one of the several The CW series that got canceled this month. The cancellation makes the show’s upcoming fourth season the final season.
Why was Roswell, New Mexico canceled?
The CW didn’t offer an explanation for the show’s cancellation, but the decision to end the series was likely due to the network’s potential sale. As revealed last January, The CW owners ― Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global ― are exploring a sale of the broadcaster, with local TV station giant Nexstar considered a possible buyer. This, apparently, has caused the network to pare back its slate of scripted series.
Will Roswell, New Mexico end with a cliffhanger?
Despite being canceled, the show will not leave fans hanging. “Mark Pedowitz & his team at The CW had the class & grace to warn the shows that they might not survive, even if The CW wanted them,” executive producer Julie Plec tweeted of Roswell, New Mexico and its fellow canceled series Legacies earlier this month. “Because of that, the season finales of both shows were carefully crafted to also work as series finales.”
Roswell, New Mexico season 4 plot
Earlier this month, The CW released the following synopsis for the show’s fourth season:
“With Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) and Max Evans (Nathan Dean) finally able to best Max’s clone, Mr. Jones, at the end of season 3, it seems a bit of happiness is finally ahead for them. Little do they know, a new threat is emerging down in Careyes, Mexico when a naked alien is brought to an American scientist (Shiri Appleby) in a nearby cantina. As this mysterious new alien is set on a collision course with our heroes, we’ll discover that Mr. Jones might be gone, but his vile plan for two worlds might just live on.
Meanwhile, our couples contemplate new crossroads and definitions of their relationships. A new mystery that mimics the crash of ‘47 in Roswell forces Alex Manes (Tyler Blackburn) and Michael Guerin (Michael Vlamis) to balance personal goals and undercover work; Maria’s (Heather Hemmens) potential cure for her regenerative disease comes with a shocking twist; and Dallas (Quentin Pilar), Isobel (Lily Cowles) and Kyle (Michael Trevino) contemplate new layers of how their families might all be connected.
All these new revelations unfold as our sleepy town of Roswell, New Mexico gets woken up by a daring daylight bank robbery where mysteriously not a single dollar is touched. But what was taken just might shed new light on the crash from ‘47 and what Max Evans’ true purpose has been all along.”
