Based on a series of books by Melinda Metz, the show will follow a young science researcher, who in this version of the story is the daughter of undocumented migrants to the US.

The scientist must return to her hometown of Roswell in south-eastern New Mexico where she discovers a former crush is in fact an alien hiding among humans.

The show is a reboot of a series that originally ran between 1999 and 2002, but which doubled California for New Mexico locations.

The real-life town of Roswell is renowned by UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects) enthusiasts as the site of an apparent UFO crash in 1947.

“We welcome back Warner Bros., an extensive collaborator in the New Mexico film industry, with this creative story based on historic events in Roswell, NM," said Nick Maniatis, director of the New Mexico Film Office.

“Our state's unique history, crew, support services, and a very successful tax credit have drawn the producers back to our thriving industry.”

New Mexico is the most popular part of the US for desert filming locations and has had a particularly high-profile TV production industry since hosting the acclaimed crime drama Breaking Bad. The state is also home to Better Call Saul, a prequel series to Breaking Bad.
