Roswell, New Mexico‘s first season finale aired on April 23, 2019 and ended with a cliffhanger that left the fate of one of the main characters dangling. It turns out fans didn’t have to worry for long that they’d never know what happened to Max (played by Nathan Dean Parsons). The CW today confirmed the alien drama will return for a second season.
The network also confirmed fellow newbies All American and In The Dark have earned season two renewal orders. Season six of The CW’s sci-fi action/drama The 100 hasn’t premiered, but that show has also picked up a renewal order for season seven.
Today’s announcement increases the network’s upcoming 2019-2020 primetime season renewal orders to 14. Five of those shows just premiered this season: Roswell, New Mexico, All American, In The Dark, Charmed, and Legacies.
“As we begin to plan for the 2019-2020 season, we’re thrilled to have this roster of 14 exceptionally creative and distinctive series, including all five first year shows, as the foundation on which to continue to build the multiplatform future of The CW,” stated Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “One of our key long-term goals has been to continually add more original programming all year round, especially in midseason and summer, and with these returning shows and the new series we’ll order as we get closer to the May upfront, next season on The CW is shaping up to be our most robust year round schedule yet.
Shows previously announced as returning include Supernatural which will be back for its 15th – and final – season. Arrow is also ending its run with its upcoming eighth season. Black Lightning and Dynasty picked up third seasons, and Riverdale earned a fourth season. Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow both received fifth season orders, and The Flash will be back for season six.
