'Roswell' reunites at ATX Television Festival

Posted on

Roswell
The WB

Earth to Roswell fans: The ATX Television Festival is staging a 15-year anniversary reunion with stars Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler, Brendan Fehr, and Roswell creator Jason Katims this June.

The sci-fi show first premiered back in October 1999 on The WB and ran for three seasons (the last on airing on the UPN) before getting canceled due to poor ratings in 2002. The people who did watch the show really watched it, though — fans even sent The WB loads of Tabasco sauce (what the show’s aliens liked to snack on) in an attempt to convince the network to keep the show on during its first season.

Besides celebrating Roswell‘s anniversary, Fehr will also be at the festival for a screening of new NBC medical drama The Night Shift, which he stars in. Co-stars Jill Flint and Daniella Alonso will also attend the screening, along with show creator Gabe Sachs. The Night Shift premieres Tuesday, May 27 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
