An ALF Reboot Could Be on the Way

An ALF Reboot Could Be on the Way

Television is developing a reboot of the classic '80s sitcom "ALF".

The series - the title of which is an acronym for "alien life form" - followed the adventures of a snarky, snout-nosed alien named Gordon Shumway, who moves from his place beyond the stars into the suburbs of America with a middle-class family of humans.

The series aired on NBC from September 22, 1986, to March 24, 1990 for a total of 99 episodes and ended with ALF getting caught by the Alien Task Force.

But anyway, fans of '90s nostalgia will be interested to see that Warner Bros.

Despite being off the air for almost three decades, ALF - an acronym for Alien Life Form - has remained a steadfast favourite of 1980s television.

Somewhere on this earth there is a person, a unique and wonderful person, whose soul has been crying out for a reboot of the TV series ALF.

The original series starred Max Wright as Willie Tanner, Anne Schedeen as Kate Tanner, Andrea Elson as Lynn Tanner and Benji Gregory as Brian Tanner. It's unclear if Paul Fusco - the puppeteer and voice actor, as well as the series co-creator, writer, director and EP - will have any role. He cracked wise and ate cats. The character has remained a staple of pop culture over the years and has been referenced and even made appearances in ads, shows, comics and films over the years. Though the studio has yet to officially comment on the news, Warner Bros.is reportedly in the process of looking for a writer to pen the ALF reboot.
