The final season of the popular teen science-fiction drama sees some major changes among the aliens of Roswell and their human friends, as well as a shift in tone away from science-fiction and toward character-driven drama. Michael (Brendan Fehr), Isabel (Katherine Heigl), Tess (Emilie de Ravin), and Max (Jason Behr) are high school students in Roswell New Mexico, attempting to live "normal" lives despite the fact that they are really the last of a dying alien race, which they are destined to someday save. Each possess otherworldy gifts, which they struggle to keep hidden from their peers and the authorities, who, having been alerted to the presence of aliens in their midst, are constantly on their trail. In Season Three the alien teenagers are coming of age, facing the uncertainties of graduation and relationships with their human friends. The FBI is hot on their trail and the realization dawns that the group's use of their powers has backfired on them. But as aliens and humans prepare to leave the once-safe haven of Roswell, a startling vision appears to Liz that may change everyone's chosen path. A unique television program due to its subtlety, humor, and examination of prescient issues of identity, the unique show enjoyed a large cult following.
