ALF reboot in development

ALF reboot in development”

An ALF reboot is in the works at Warner Bros. Warner Bros.is reportedly working on a reboot of ALF, the 1990s sitcom about an "Alien Life Form" that eats cats and sets up with a suburban family, allowing hilarity to ensue.

This marks the latest classic series to get eyed for a reboot. In the case of ALF, this could do a lot for those who are prone to latching onto 80s nostalgia. As of now, Fusco's involvement in the reboot remains unclear.

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

Joining Willie is his wife, Kate (Anne Schedeen), daughter Lynn (Andrea Elson) and son Brian (Benji Gregory), whom ALF develops a close bond with.

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. He has also appeared in commercials for DirecTV and Radio Shack, as well as the video game XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Original writers Tom Patchett and Paul Fusco are involved in the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It's said they've been working on the new take since May, but without a writer on board it signals that the project is in the early stages, so it may be some time before we actually see anything come to fruition.
