Can you believe it's been 14 years since Roswell first aired?! (14 years, 9 months, 26 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Roswell end?
When Roswell came to an end after 3 years in May 2002, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Tess Harding (Emilie de Ravin), Max Evans (Jason Behr), Isabel Evans (Katherine Heigl), Maria DeLuca (Majandra Delfino) and Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Roswell reunion disappoint people?
Roswell aired from 1999-2002 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Delfino said she's not sure if Roswell would work today. “I don't want to see old Maria DeLuca,” she told a journalist (Delfino turned 33 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Roswell movie?
In a recent interview, Jason Behr said he can't imagine a Roswell reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Colin Hanks (who played Alex Whitman between 1999 and 2001) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Roswell movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Roswell film, Richard Schiff stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Roswell reboot?
Recasting Roswell for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Roswell reunion, a Roswell movie, or a Roswell reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
