UPDATE: That was quick! Just a few hours after this initial post-finale story was written, The CW renewed Roswell, New Mexico for Season 2. So no fears that the Roswell storylines will forever die on those dark notes...
Spoilers ahead from the Roswell, New Mexico Season 1 finale, Episode 13, "Recovering the Satellites," which first aired April 23.
Roswell, New Mexico fans are reeling from the big Season 1 finale, and hoping The CW renews the show for Season 2.
Not only did the show seem to kill off Max Evans (Nathan Dean Parsons), Max's bold move brought back Liz Ortecho's (Jeanine Mason) sister Rosa (Amber Midthunder) in the process. Also, Michael Guerin (Michael Vlamis) and Alex Manes (Tyler Blackburn) fans are not happy that the season ended with Michael blowing off the rest of his conversation with Alex to get romantic with Maria DeLuca (Heather Hemmens).
Show creator Carina Adly MacKenzie noted in post-episode interviews that Roswell, NM teased Max's death at the start of the season when Max told Liz he read all these religious texts about the man with the miracle hands tending to die a bloody death.
As Carina Adly MacKenzie told EW, the show needs to have some stakes or nothing matters. It does sound like she's hopeful for Season 2, so that's good news. MacKenzie said something similar about Max to TVLine:
Since Max is the guy who can resurrect people, and he's gone, what do they do? However, it sounds like hope is far from lost on that front, and Carina Adly MacKenzie is already thinking about more of Max's story in Season 2:
More on Michael in a minute, but what about Rosa? Carina Adly MacKenzie told TVLine Season 2 would pick up that story right away:
The showrunner was also asked if she felt pressure from fans to keep Michael with Alex for the sake of not losing another same-sex relationship on TV.
In her answer to TVLine, Carina Adly MacKenzie gave hope to Michael and Alex fans:
Carina Adly MacKenzie shared more on that Alex and Michael storyline to EW:
Yes, if we get it. She told EW she knew she was leaving things hanging on big cliffhangers, because her job as showrunner is to launch a story that could continue over several seasons:
So now we wait. The CW has renewed other shows -- like Legacies, which has a lot of connections to Roswell, New Mexico since several people in The Originals family are involved in this series -- so chances are pretty good that Roswell will see another season. It sounds like a lot of shows will learn their fates in May, so The CW may be tracking DVR and other data to factor that into consideration. We'll see. Do you want more Roswell?

Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
