Roswell was a teen drama/science fiction show that aired for three seasons from October 1999 to May 2002. While the show was never as popular as other teen dramas that aired during that time, it managed to attract a very loyal fan following. It’s been almost 15 years since the show was cancelled, so come with us and reminisce with these 12 things you didn’t know about Roswell:

12. Concept

The show is based on the young adult book series Roswell High, which is written by Melinda Metz and edited by Laura J. Burns (both of them became staff writers for the show). Jason Katims – who developed the series – came across the novels and really liked Liz and Max’s storyline. “It was an idea I never would’ve come up with on my own,” he said. “It seemed like an incredibly romantic idea to me, these two characters, Liz and Max, being in love but having this very real thing that kept them from being together. I’d never worked on anything that had the kind of stakes that this show had… That was the thing that I was drawn to, and I was also drawn to the fun of the idea.”

11. Winging It

During season one, the writers had plotted things out, but for the most part, they were just winging it on a day-to-day basis. “To me, one of the exciting things about the premise of the show is that three alien characters in the show don’t know about their history, which makes [things], from a writing point of view, exciting because as they discover their backstory, the audience is discovering.”
