The Cast of the Original 'Roswell': See Them Now!

The CW is rebooting the alien-centric series, with a new twist.

Cue the Dido theme song because "Roswell" is coming back to television.

15 years after the show ended its three-season run on The WB and UPN from 1999-2002, The CW is reviving the series. The original show -- starring Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr and Katherine Heigl -- revolved around a group of alien teenagers hiding out in Roswell, New Mexico.

The reboot sounds like it'll age up the main characters, taking them out of high school. According to Variety, the series will "follow the daughter of undocumented immigrants who reluctantly returns to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. There she discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: he's an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life."

"When a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance," the report adds.

TooFab caught up with the original show's stars in 2015 at a reunion for the Austin TV Festival -- watch some of our interviews with the cast below.
