Roswell is an American science fiction television series created by Jason Katims, which originally ran between October 1999 and May 2002.
Described by one reviewer as "a star-crossed teen-age love story with an otherworldly twist", the series focused on teenage aliens hiding in plain sight as humans in Roswell, New Mexico.
The aliens are survivors of the 1947 UFO crash popularly known as The Roswell Incident.

Roswell centers around three teens Liz, Maria and Alex who attend the local high school in Roswell. Liz works in a cafe and is shot during an argument between two customers. Fellow student Max Evans rushes to her aid.
Later, she finds a silver handprint on her stomach and confronts Max. He is forced to admit that he, his sister Isabel and their friend Michael are aliens who survived the 1947 UFO crash known as The Roswell Incident.
