Hi Everyone. I got a little behind in updating the news around the world so forgive me :( Thr link to the petition for Holland is actually Petition Use this link :)

Please continue to send in anything that’s going on with the show in your country. I thank everyone of you who send information in for the site–especially those individuals where English is not your first or primary language. I still have problems with Spanish and I’m only a few hours away from the Mexican border.

AUSTRALIA

Thanks to Michelle for this :)

Wanted to let you know whats going on in Australia and Roswell.

Well we just finished season two last year in December (some states went into January etc.) but season three doesn’t seem to be coming anytime soon, although Channel Nine (the channel that airs Roswell) have said they have bought the rights to season three. They say they’ll play it later this year … but to see is to believe !!

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Thanks to Alexis for this :)

Here in the Dominican Republic (the Caribbean)
Roswell airs Saturdays 8pm, on Fox Channel Latin
America. The 3rd season started already here.

Last year there was an article in one of the mayor
newspapers about how the fans of the show were trying
to save it from cancellation.

ENGLAND

Thanks to Jen for this :)

I received an email from the BBC on the 24th April 2002, confirming the announcement on various UK Roswell sites that Roswell has indeed been cancelled by the BBC. An official article is up on the BBC Cult homepage. This is all very well and good for those people with satellite or digital capabilities (Roswell is on Sky1 in June) but those of us with terrestrial-only television who relied on the BBC have yet another battle on our hands.

To save Roswell for fans living in Britain please sign the petition to Channel 5 (who we decided after a lot of thinking would be the best channel to approach) which is located at Petition

Thanks to Darris for this :)

Hello i just thought you would like to know that the BBC in the uk have just
stated that they will not be showing season 3 of Roswell due to its bad
rating when it showed season 2.
I though you could add it to your news section?
the statement was made in their cult news section which can be found by
going to Link To BBC

Thanks to Karen for this :)

I found this on a teletext page in the UK called the sci files. I
don’t know what those of us who don’t have Sky are meant to do now?

“Roswell disappears from sight

British fans of alien invasion drama Roswell have a double blow to
smart from. Production has ceased on the US series, prompting a 25000
signature petition mustered by fans to be sent to executives at the US
studio Fox. Now BBC chiefs have decided not to air the third season.
After reviewing its ratings performance on BBC2, they decided it just
wasn’t popular enough.

It follows the show being axed in April by Fox due to mediocre rating.
Roswell was based on claims that aliens landed in the New Mexico town
in 1947. It followed the trials of the descendants, posing as teens.
Items from the set are now part of an eBay Auction. A framed newspaper
article sold for £856″

Thanks to Louisa for this :)

To the British Fans,

I have set up a Petition to the BBC asking them to show Series 3, I hope you will all sign it, even if you will beable to see it on SKY. We must make ourselves be heard. Please go to the following address to sign: Sign Petition< The closing date for this petion is JUNE 6TH purposely chosen becuase Roswell starts on SKY on that day.

NEW ZEALAND

Thanks to Nicky and Richard for the information :)

In New Zealand Roswell is one of the most popular shows on tv and it airs Tuesday nights at 8.30pm. We are actually only a week behind the USA and are up to “Who died and made you king”. The season premiere was the no 1 programme for the week it aired.
Max even appears in an ad on tv for the channel it airs on…
We are very disappointed it is ending…

Thanks to Rachel for this :)

New Zealand will be screening the finale, on Sunday 19th May. For the first
time, the episode will be screened only days after the US. It’s being
heavily promoted on TV2.

For the week beginning May 5th (Episode #316, Crash), Roswell rated 9th
most-watched show, with 15% of the 18-39 age group!
