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.
