Carina MacKenzie Departs ‘Roswell, New Mexico’

I always say that there are three sides to every story – yours, mine, and the truth. And the truth is we’ll never know all the sides. We’re not meant to. Especially when it comes to Hollywood.

Carina MacKenzie posted today that she has made the decision to resign from Roswell, New Mexico, and I have to admit that part of my fandom heart hurt over the news.

A little Liz Ortecho 💄 armor felt appropriate this morning. Here goes… This week, I made the difficult decision to resign from my role on Roswell, New Mexico. I obviously don’t take this decision lightly, but ultimately due to fundamental differences, I’m departing and entrusting RNM to capable hands. I’m so proud of what we built over the last two years, and I believe in the heart and soul of the show: asking tough questions, striving to make the world better, amplifying marginalized voices, and fighting the good fight. This cast is exquisitely talented, and there’s no kinder or harder working crew in TV. I’ll be rooting for you guys (and of course continuing my nonprofit work to ease the burden the crew has experienced during the COVID-19 shutdown). Because there’s a lot of nonsense getting spread around, let me make it clear this decision has nothing to do with any of the cast, crew, or writers. I love them in an epic forever handprints-on-my-soul kinda way. Finding Liz Ortecho with Jeanine has been a joy. I think any fan who joined us for a glass of wine on Instagram live during this shutdown knows there’s no “tension,” so I’m just gonna go back to texting with her about the home reno projects we’re both working on and roll my eyes at that boring attempt to pit women against each other. What year is it? As for ~secret anonymous sources~ revealing that I wasn’t in the writer’s room as much as I’d have liked to be, TRUE TRUE TRUE. 😂 Shooting on location while writing in LA is so hard. Thank god for my co-showrunner/friend/partner/champion Chris Hollier; together we could be in two places at once. Over the last few months, the team and I broke the Season 3 story together, I had talks with the actors about the season character journeys. I put my finishing touches on the season premiere this week. But this is a business, and there were fundamental disagreements about a couple of things that were and are very important to me. Here’s to the happiest of endings. ❤️👽❤️

And yes, there was more that was said, over at The Hollywood Reporter, like that she had a set filled with tension, strife, and didn’t get along with the star, Jeanine Mason.

And who will ever know? But in this, we’re taking Carina at her word, because she’s always inspired us. And whatever the truth is – we will never know. What we do know is that she’s always stood up for what she believes in, inspiring others to do the same.

We can’t wait to see what she does next.
