Roswell may be coming back to television - but with an update for the Trump era. The reboot is retaining parts of that original story while also intending to modernize it and include current political and societal themes.

Variety reports the reboot would follow the daughter of undocumented immigrants who reluctantly returns to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, where she discovers the police officer she has a crush on is actually an alien who has kept his unearthly gifts a secret.

Deadline reports the reimagining is written and produced by Carina Adly MacKenzie (The Originals), and is created to "reflect the realities of its location in a state bordering Mexico".

Amblin Television, Bender Brown Prods, and Warner Bros. Amblin's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will exec produce.

Fifteen years after Roswell ended its three-season run on the WB and UPN, the two networks' successor, the CW, is resurrecting the cult sci-fi title. Still based on Melinda Metz's book, "Roswell High", it will focus on immigration issues.

Variety reports that the network behind other reboots like Dynasty is meant to provide a modern update to the story, focusing on the daughter of undocumented immigrants who returns to her hometown - Roswell, New Mexico. With showrunners like Friday Night Lights' Jason Katims and Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore, and cast members like Katherine Heigl, Colin Hanks, Emilie de Ravin, Nick Wechler, and Shiri Appleby amongst its numbers, it transcended its teen drama roots to become something greater. An original producer on the 1990s series, Kevin Kelly Brown, is involved in the reboot - but aside from Brown it's a fresh creative team. The drama explored topics including forbidden love.
