Television Q&A: What happened to ‘Roswell’? – Sun Sentinel

A: For folks tuning in late, first there was “Roswell,” a science fiction series that aired on the old WB and UPN networks from 1999 to 2002. Then, in January arrived “Roswell, New Mexico,” a reworking of the older series, on The CW (which was formed with pieces of WB and UPN). The newer series did well enough in its first run that The CW has ordered a second batch of episodes to premiere at midseason. Other series resuming later this season on the network include “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The 100” and “In the Dark.”
