The 'Roswell' Reboot Is Political AF & Features a Gay Kiss
The CW show takes several digs at Trump and immigration policies.
The CW's upcoming Roswell reboot isn't shying away from progressive storylines!
Similar to the 1999 WB series, aliens and humans live together in the small town of Roswell. Roswell, New Mexico follows Liz Ortecho, the daughter of undocumented immigrants who returns to her small town when tragedy strikes. Of course, she runs into her old alien flame, Max, and drama ensues. During the course of the pilot, there are apparently several digs at Trump and immigration policies, according to The Mary Sue.
On top of that, the show is also featuring a gay couple! During the pilot episode screening at New York Comic Con, The Mary Sue reports only one kiss in the first episode and it's between two queer men that left "the entire panel audience at NYCC cheering and applauding."
We don't know much else about the show, as it won't premiere on The CW until 2019, but we're beyond hyped for some potential gay alien love!
