One of the new debut shows from The CW in 2018 was Roswell, New Mexico. The romantic drama will be returning to The CW for season 2 soon but when will season 2 release on Netflix? Here’s what we know.
Along with nearly every show from The CW from last year, it got a second season renewal. This includes the likes of All American getting renewed for season 2 as well as the whole of the Arrowverse, Riverdale and some of the other shows. Tha’s with the exception of iZombie, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend which ended this year.
Roswell, New Mexico is a TV adaptation of the book series of the same name. The series is a romance/sci-fi series which sees aliens living among humans. The series popularity recently spiked after the area 51 meme grew.
When will Roswell, New Mexico Season 2 be back on The CW?
The series actually doesn’t have an official premiere date on The CW as of yet. With that said, the show is expected to air once again on its midseason slot.
As TVline reports, its been held up for a midseason release along with Katy Keene, Legends of Tomorrow, In the Dark and The 100.
This means we’re currently expecting the series to start airing on The CW in January 2020 or early 2020. The series will air on The CW as well as being available on CW Seed on catch-up.
When will Roswell, New Mexico season 2 be on Netflix?
We’re expecting season 2 of Roswell, New Mexico to retain its Netflix release as per other The CW shows and come to Netflix roughly a week after it finishes airing on The CW.
At the moment, that means we’re probably expecting season 2 to be added to Netflix sometime in May 2019.
Won’t The CW titles be leaving Netflix?
Sort of. The CW and Netflix’s overall output deal came to an end in 2019 but all existing shows that are on Netflix were converted over to what are referred to as legacy contracts. That means so long as new seasons keep getting released Netflix will be able to keep getting the newer seasons.
Once shows have wrapped up they’ll likely leave in a few years and then move over to their new home on HBO Max.
Will Rosewell, New Mexico come to Netflix in other regions?
At the moment, only Netflix in the US carries Roswell, New Mexico. In the UK, the series doesn’t have a carrier at all as is the case in most regions.
