Historical Note

Roswell aired between 1999 and 2002 on The WB (for the first two seasons) and UPN (for the final season). The science fiction show, set in Roswell, New Mexico, was based on the series Roswell High, written by Melinda Metz, and was produced by Jason Katims. Ron Moore joined the show as an executive producer and showrunner after the show’s first season to help build up the science fiction elements of the show’s plot. Moore wrote ten of the show’s episodes, including the series finale “Graduation Day.”
