Familiar Faces Both Old And New Make Contact In New Season Of Roswell, New Mexico

In the aftermath of the tragic sacrifice of Max Evans (Nathan Dean) and return of Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder) in the season one finale of Roswell, New Mexico, the mysterious town seemed like a place where anything could happen. It’s only fitting then that the second season will see two surprising recurring guest stars: Gaius Charles from Friday Night Lights and Jason Behr, the actor who portrayed Max Evans in the original Roswell series. Cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television’s sophomore series announced the cast additions during Roswell, New Mexico’s New York Comic Con 2019 panel on Sunday, October 6. Gaius Charles, who played Smash on Friday Night Lights, will recur as Bronson, a local farmer with a strong moral compass that leads him to see the good in people –– and aliens –– in a time of great prejudice. Ultimately, his quest to protect those he loves pits him against forces far more powerful than he is. About the casting of Charles, executive producer Chris Hollier added: “When we were looking at a way to instantly have our audience be invested in a 1947 storyline, we …

Cult Series ‘Dark Shadows’ May Be Getting A Reboot On The CW

Rumor has it that The CW and Warner Bros. Television are in the process of developing a new series based on the classic 60’s cult series “Dark Shadows”. There is no word on just how the new series will differ for the classic series which blended together elements of a soap opera and comedy. It is said that the pilot for the series will be written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Ghost Whisperer and Brothers & Sisters). A big fan of the original show, which he watched as a child when he came home from school, the showrunner has been after the adaptation rights for Dark Shadows for the last two years. This latest version will be “a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: for the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.” The new team intends to get back to the roots of the original series, …
