.The CW’s alien-themed sci-fi thriller “Roswell, New Mexico” differs from the original “Roswell,” but the newest program is a bit as intriguing as the original — if not more so — than the original. Fans have already been treated to three seasons’ worth of otherworldly thrills, and it’s certainly safe to say that Season 3 of the program ended things in a state that left viewers wishing for more, and preferably as soon as they could get it.
As the fourth season of “Roswell, New Mexico” gets underway, the show has a lot on its plate. With some old threats defeated and plenty of new mysteries foreshadowed, the show has a lot to look forward to. In other words, when can we expect to see what occurs next? Who will make a comeback in the show, and where will the new plot strands take them are still up in the air. However, there is already a substantial amount of information accessible about the show’s future, which helps to alleviate some of this uncertainty. Here’s a quick guide to everything we presently know about “Roswell, New Mexico” Season 4’s release date, cast, and plot, all in one place.
Is There a Set Date for the Premiere of Roswell, New Mexico Season 4?
Season 1 of “Roswell, New Mexico” premiered on January 15, 2019, and the show has followed a more or less consistent release schedule since then. Season 2 of The Walking Dead premiered on March 16, 2020. Season 3 filming will begin in October 2020, with the season premiering on July 26, 2021, according to executive producer Julie Plec, who confirmed the news on Twitter. This gives you a good sense of how long the show’s production cycle will be.
Given that the news of a fourth season of the programme was made as part of The CW’s bulk renewal announcement in February 2021, it has been known for some time that the show will return for another season (per Deadline). As reported by KRWG, the new season of The Walking Dead will begin filming in August 2021 and will conclude in January 2022. Knowing this, you can reasonably anticipate the fourth season of “Roswell, New Mexico” to premiere sometime in the late spring or summer of 2022.
According to the creators of “Roswell, New Mexico,” the first episode of Season 4 will air sooner rather than later since they uploaded an image of the episode script on their Twitter account, revealing that the episode’s title is “Steal My Sunshine.” They also mentioned to a fan in another tweet that additional episodes are on the way, but they did not specify when they would be released.
Who Will Be a Part of the Roswell, New Mexico Season 4 Ensemble Cast?
It’s highly likely that everyone who survived Season 3 of “Roswell, New Mexico” will also be present and accounted for in Season 4 — even if Nathan Dean Parsons may have slightly less work this season due to the defeat of the villainous Mr Jones in the Season 3 finale likely leaving him with only Max Evans to play this time around.
There will, of course, be new characters to interact with. Jones’ departure from the program means that the show will require new adversaries, however, it is unclear who will take on that position… and how they will do so. There is one thing we do know: Shiri Appleby’s character will officially be returning for at least a two-episode arc following her unexpected cameo at the close of Season 3 of “Roswell” (via Digital Spy).
Per Deadline, Zoe Cipres (Grownish), Andrew Lees (The Originals, “Mortal Engines”), and other actors will appear in Season 4 of “Roswell, New Mexico” as two bank robbers who will be known as Bonnie and Clyde, a reference to the legendary real-life criminals of the same name. It has been confirmed that the characters will appear in a storyline involving Michael Vlamis’ alien character, Michael Guerin.
In What Way Does Roswell, New Mexico Season 4 Differ From the Previous Seasons?
Undoubtedly, the arrival in Mexico of a mystery new lady on the trail of Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) will be one of the biggest stomachs blows the last season of “Roswell, New Mexico” Season 3 has in store for the audience. Yet the most significant one occurs when this lady is put in contact with Allie, who claims to be Liz’s former teacher… and who also happens to be played by Shiri Appleby, the star of the original “Roswell” television series.
Even though Appleby’s Liz Parker in “Roswell” is a different character from Liz Ortecho, the two characters share a central role in their respective shows, making the fact that Appleby appears in the reboot and declares that Mason’s character “used to be a student” of hers an excellent setting for Season 4. According to the show’s executive producer, Chris Hollier, who spoke to TV Line, this is also not a case of stunt casting. “We’ve been talking about it since Episode 10 of last year,” Hollier remarked of the ongoing conversations. “We reached out to her and began discussing how to include her into the show. We also offered her a mini-arc for the show. ‘It’s fantastic,’ she exclaimed. So I’m going to do it myself.’ We do not doubt that the audience would like that particular moment.”
Consequently, it appears like Appleby has been brought in for a very specific reason, but it may not be the one you’d expect from his appearance alone. I’m looking forward to people speculating for several months,” Hollier teased. “You can never trust what your initial image is,” Hollier cautioned. “I can confirm that she will return for Season 4.”
As a result of the entrance of the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde, as well as the strange plotline involving Appleby’s “Allie” and the unnamed woman hunting for Liz, “Roswell, New Mexico” Season 4 is unquestionably moving in an intriguing new direction.
