Jeanine Mason & Nathan Parsons Talk About Why It Was The Right Time to Reboot 'Roswell'

Can you believe that tonight’s the premiere of Roswell, New Mexico?!

Stars Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons chatted about why right now was the best time to reboot the original WB show, with a twist.

“It changes the dynamic a bit [from the original],” Nathan shared with NY Post. “We’re no longer in high school. We’ve jumped 10 years ahead. The show carries the same title and basis, but I think this is pretty original in its storytelling.”

He adds, “There’s this alien aspect but [Max is] also a cop. So it’s this dichotomy between this very normal life as a deputy in the sheriff department … who also has secret powers. That’s fun to play with.”

“It’s the right property to revisit,” Jeanine says. “I don’t think that’s always the case [with reboots] but this one in particular really made sense.”

As for taking on the role of Liz, she adds that it was “exciting to me to get to revisit this property right now. There’s this line … where a character is accusing Liz of being combative, and she says, ‘I’m a Mexican-American woman in 2018. I engage in combat just by getting out of bed in the morning.’ It made me laugh and hurt my heart because it rang so true.”

Roswell, New Mexico premieres TONIGHT, January 15th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Why Nathan Parsons Was The Perfect Actor To Play Max in 'Roswell, New Mexico'

Why Nathan Parsons Was The Perfect Actor To Play Max in 'Roswell, New Mexico'

Nathan Parsons wasn’t supposed to actually be Max in Roswell, New Mexico…at least, not until he stepped in to read lines during auditions.

Showrunner Carina Adly MacKenzie revealed to EW that Nathan was actually supposed to be Michael, but that all changed fast.

“He was very different from the Max that I imagined, to be honest,” she shared. “I saw Max as someone with purity and a wide-eyed, idealistic innocence to them, and Nathan Parsons, God love him, has seen some sh—.”

She continues, “It took on a different tone, but I actually think it kind of saves the show. Frankly, I don’t think that we would’ve gotten picked up if had we not made Max this layered, interesting, and darker character. He feels like he has secrets from the minute you meet him, and I like that.”

Even Jeanine Mason, who plays Liz in the series, couldn’t see anyone else as Max.

“From the second we bumped into each other outside of the building at WB, I just knew immediately,” she shared. “Honestly, maybe it’s just because of my dance background, but the physical life is very important to me, and just standing across from him felt like it worked.”

Roswell, New Mexico premieres TOMORROW, January 15th on The CW.

'Roswell, New Mexico' Pilot Photos Revealed!

We’re so excited for everyone to see the upcoming Roswell, New Mexico pilot and some photos from the show have been revealed!

The new series, a reboot of the classic show Roswell, will be premiering on The CW on Tuesday, January 15.

Roswell, New Mexico honors the magic of the original but delivers a fresh perspective, current storylines and beautiful, diverse casting. Shiri Appleby, who played Liz in the original series, will be back to direct a future episode in the first season.

The new series revolves around the daughter (Jeanine Mason) of undocumented immigrants who, after reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush (Nathan Parsons) 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.

Lily Cowles, Michael Vlamis, Michael Trevino, Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens, Trevor St. John, and Karan Oberoi also star in the new show, which was developed by Carina Adly MacKenzie.
