Roswell, New Mexico hasn’t even premiered yet and we already want to decorate our home with it.
E! News gets to exclusively debut the new poster for the upcoming CW series today, and we gotta say that when we first saw it, it took our breath away a little bit. Nothing like a New Mexico desert sunset to set up the perfect background for a romantic moment, which is what Liz (Jeanine Mason) and Max (Nathan Parsons) appear to be having. We need this color scheme in our lives.
Roswell, New Mexico is another adaptation of the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz, this time focusing on Liz Ortecho, a scientist who returns to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico ten years after her sister died and she left the town behind. She reconnects with her teenage crush and current Roswell police office Max, who also turns out to have been an alien the whole time.
The new series also stars Lily Cowles as Isobel, Max’s sister, and Michael Vlamis as Michael, their fellow alien friend. Michael Trevino plays Kyle, Liz’s ex-boyfriend, Heather Hemmens plays Liz’s best friend Maria, and Tyler Blackburn plays Alex, who just returned injured from service overseas and has no idea that his dad (Trevor St. John) is at the helm of a “long-standing government conspiracy.” (Typical.)
Once the show premieres we’ll have to deal with that conspiracy and the dangers that threaten to expose the existence of aliens and ruin everyone’s lives, but for now, we’re just going to spend the next few weeks staring at this poster, because it’s beautiful.
Roswell, New Mexico premieres Tuesday, January 15 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
