No doubt, you are looking forward to the announcement of Roswell, New Mexico Season 2. The good news arrived April 24. The CW has published the official tweet, according to which Roswell, New Mexico is coming back for another television season. The decision on renewal has been made despite a mixed reception the freshman received from the critics. No release date for the upcoming season has been announced so far, yet The CW's president, Mark Pedowitz, said that all the renewed shows will be returning in the 2019-2020 television season.
Nothing is surprising in the fact that The CW opted to pick up their freshman, Roswell, New Mexico, for another round because of the statistics the show has shown. Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 premiere has garnered 1.51 million viewers with a 0.4/2 key demo among adults (P18-49). For any show on The CW such results may be considered as impressive, given the fact that The CW is a cable network, not a national broadcaster.
However, as mentioned above, the critics have met the series quite ambivalent. On Rotten Tomatoes, Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 holds a score of 6.22/10 and a 53% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the sci-fi teen drama at 3.6/5, and have given a 68% rating. On Metacritic, we see almost the same indicators, 58/100 and 6.3/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. Nonetheless, it's worth noting that an overall score of the series on IMDb is a bit low, 5.9/10 ~ 5,000 votes.
Roswell, New Mexico Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, the only fact, which is officially confirmed is that Roswell, New Mexico would return for Season in the 2019-20 television season. Yet most likely, the 2nd season is set to premiere next winter, in January 2020, given the current schedule of the series. We doubt that The CW could release the 2nd installment this fall, yet we don't rule out such a decision. In any case, we should wait for the official announcement from The CW. As soon as the network sets the exact premiere date for the upcoming season, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
