A Future For ‘Roswell?’

The show is helplessly trying to balance on the edge of cancellation, but executive producer Jason Katims recently told Cinescape magazine that he still has some hope for the future of UPN’s “Roswell.”

“I think [the new direction] is good and bad,” he said. “This is a show that’s grown and eveolved over three years, and I’m very proud of that. I think that we’ve been through a whole lifetime of these characters, and they’ve gone through a lot. They’ve changed and they’ve grown up.

“There have been moments when I feel that we’ve gone a little bit too far in certain directions at certain times. For example, in the middle of the second season, I felt that the show got too drenched in mythology — too complicated. I think we lot a little bit of the heart of the show.”

Whether UPN decides to return the show next season or not, Katims did say that they will be planning a big finale for this season.

“We definitely know what we want to do,” he said. “We believe that it will be both a satisfying conclusion to the series, and will also serve as almost a pilot to launch the show into a new direction, which we think will play well with UPN. Hopefully, we’ll be able to move in a new and improved version of hte show.

“There has been a little talk of one or two two-hour movies subsequent to that. But, I’m hoping we’ll get another season on UPN
