“My alien friends and I are gonna be lurking backstage at the #Legacies panel. 👽👽👽 #WBSDCC”, wrote the “Roswell, New Mexico” showrunner on July 18th on Twitter. Three days later, Carina Adly MacKenzie, Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons crashed the panel of The CW’s new show “Legacies” at Comic-Con in San Diego and presented the trailer of their mid-season show to the attendees of the “Vampire Diaries” spin-off. “They triiiied to keep us out of comic con but aliens always find a way to crash the party.” posted MacKenzie later on Twitter.
Julie Plec directed the pilot of the re-imagining, which is set to premiere mid-season. @3SippingSisters attended the panel and snapped a picture and wrote: “Wow! @cadlymack just crashed the Legacies panel with a gorgeous preview of Roswell! AMAZING! Dang, I love #SDCC. I screamed a bunch. Quite a bit of screaming.”
