  • There’s Reportedly an ALF Reboot in Development

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.

ALF ran for four seasons on NBC from 1986 to 1990.

Despite being off the air for almost three decades, ALF - an acronym for Alien Life Form - remains something of a hot pop culture property. In the original series, ALF of the planet Melmac crash lands in the suburbs and takes up residence with the middle class Tanner family. The series has remained a part of the pop culture landscape long after it ended and is frequently referenced in other shows and films.

If the world doesn't end in the next decade, there won't be any more shows left to reboot and then Hollywood will just have to reboot the reboots. A rep for the studio declined to comment for this story.

TV Line first reported the "ALF" reboot's development. The Tanners, headed by Willie (Max Wright), Kate (Anne Schedeen), Lynn (Andrea Elson), and Brian (Benji Gregory), hide the alien from the Alien Task Force, and deal with his day-to-day shenanigans.

Gordon Shumway, a.k.a. ALF, was voiced by Paul Fusco, who likewise operated the puppet, and co-created the series along with Tom Patchett.
