‘Roswell: New Mexico’: Showrunner Reveals What Season 4’s Original Ending Would Be
In an interview with Variety, the showrunner Chris Hollier revealed the original ending that had been planned for season 4 of ‘Roswell, New Mexico‘, before the series was canceled by CW.
In the official ending, Max (Nathan Parsons) and Liz (Jeanine Mason) eventually got engaged, but Max had to temporarily return to his home planet. In the original version, his departure would serve as a hook for the next cycle – keeping his return uncertain.
“We made a small change at the end of the episode. [A temporada terminaria] with the controller melting, and Liz would be like, ‘Oh no! I just got engaged and now he will be stuck there forever.’ That was the only scene that was removed in the final cut.”
Hollier explained that the episode was designed to wrap up the show’s narrative, but that it was also set up for another season, which would feature multiple time passages for each character: “We had a plan in case season five was our last. We planned some time jumps to tell these new narratives. We were going to do three time jumps for all the characters.”
Created by Carina Adly MacKenziethe series is a reboot of the classic production ‘Roswell‘.
The plot revolves around a city where aliens with supernatural abilities live in disguise among humans. But when a violent attack points to a larger alien presence, the politics of fear and hate threaten to expose them.
The cast has Jeanine Mason, Nathan Dean, Michael Vlamis, lily cowles, Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens, Michael Trevino and Amber Midthunder.
