Season 2 is the second season of American science fiction series Roswell aired on The WB network.


The town of Roswell, New Mexico, has been haunted for decades with accounts of a looming alien presence. The popular television series ROSWELL, created by Jason Katims, takes that concept one step further, and follows the lives of teenage human-alien hybrids trying to make sense of their place between two worlds, with all the standard issues of teen angst thrown in to complicate life even further. Blending straight drama with elements of science fiction and fantasy, ROSWELL is an engaging drama that works on numerous levels especially in the second season as stakes grow higher for The Pod Squad.
