The Originals' Nathan Parsons will reunite with writer and exec producers Carina Adly MacKenzie and Julie Plec and star as the male lead in the network's drama pilot. Also joining the cast are Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Lily Cowles (BrainDead), Michael Vlamis (New Girl) and Heather Hemmens (Hellcats).

Parsons, who has played Jackson on The CW's Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals for Plec and MacKenzie, will play Max, described as a natural born leader and dedicated Roswell police officer who for years has concealed his origin and unearthly abilities. The role was originally played by Jason Behr in the 1999 WB Network series from Jason Katims.

Cowles will take on the role of Isobel, the polished and restrained woman who wasn’t meant for small-town life, but she lives it with all the grace and enthusiasm she can muster in order to keep her true origins a secret. Katherine Heigl played the part in the original.

Vlamis is set as the troubled but brilliant Michael, who survived a violent childhood and is now secretly driven to find a way to escape Earth and the humans who have failed him, to return to a mysterious home he’s never known. Brendan Fehr originated the part.

Blackburn is taking on Sgt. Alex Manes, who is returning home from the Middle East after experiencing his fair share of psychological and physical trauma and aims to adhere to his father’s expectations, abandoning his dreams and the possibility of a future with the man he loves. Colin Hanks played Alex Whitman in the original.

Hemmens rounds out the cast as Maria, Liz’s fun, free-spirited former best friend and social media maven who is oblivious to the realities of Roswell. Majandra Delfino originated the role.
