Roswell reporting Roswell cancellation

Thanks to ~Jason’s_angel for sending this in. Please note that this is not from an official source, and that no one has confirmed anything about the shows fate at this time.


[…] Might as well get the bad news out of the way upfront: the demise of “Roswell” is official. Sources at UPN say the production company gave up its space where the show was filmed, and that–along with the news we got a couple of weeks ago about the fact that the show’s sets had been torn down–means it’s definitely over. Now, I’ve gotten a couple of e-mails from you all, asking about the rumors that the show might move to another network. I’ve heard those rumors, too, and the most persistent one is that the show would like to move to the Sci-Fi Channel on cable. Here’s what I can tell you about that: it’s true that “Roswell’s” producer, Jonathan Frakes, has confirmed that he and the other show producers have tried shopping it around to other networks. But what everyone seems to want to ignore is the fact that the cast members–as I’ve been telling you for months now–just don’t WANT the show to continue. As for whether that will ultimately be a fatal glitch in the plan to move it to YET another network (remember, before UPN cancelled it, it had been cut loose by the WB at the end of last season), remains to be seen. As it stands right now, however, the series finale on UPN is scheduled for May 14 and will find the Roswell pals contemplating their future as they prepare for their high school graduation. New episodes of the show, by the way, are set to return to UPN on April 23.
