Roswell, New Mexico spoilers follow.

Roswell, New Mexico has confirmed that Shiri Appleby will be appearing in season four, delighting Roswell fans everywhere.

The actress, who starred in the original Roswell series, made a surprise cameo in the season three finale, which fans loved, but it has been confirmed that she'll be returning for more.

Appleby played Liz Parker back in the day, but in this show she's playing a character called Allie – whether it's a completely different character, or if there's something else going on there is a mystery right now.

All we know is that she'll so far be appearing in two more episodes.

In the final few minutes of the finale, a naked woman – believed to be "one of the sky people" – was seen confusedly wandering the streets of Careyes, Mexico, and was taken in by a mysterious woman named Allie.

When the dazed stranger started talking about Liz Ortecho, Allie seemed to perk up, informing her that Liz was once a student of hers as she stepped out of the shadows, and viewers saw that the character was being played by Appleby.

"We've been having discussions about this since episode 10 last year," executive producer Chris Hollier told TVLine after the reveal aired in the US. "We reached out to her, we started talking about how to fold her into the show, and pitched her a mini arc.

"She said, 'I love it! I'll come out and do it.' We know the fans are going to love that moment."

She has dipped her toes into this world having previously directed a couple of episodes – 'Songs About Texas' from season one, and 'What If God Was One of Us?' in season two – but it's unclear what Allie's deal is or how long she'll be hanging around for.

Hollier hinted that viewers need to note that things are rarely as they seem on this show so to keep that in mind.

"You can never trust what your first image is," he said. "But I look forward to people speculating for a couple of months."

Roswell, New Mexico airs on The CW in the US and on ITV2 in the UK.
