TV Report: "ALF" Reboot in the Works at WBTV

"ALF" Reboot in the Works at WBTV
by Michael Ausiello
August 1, 2018



Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a reboot of the beloved 80s alien sitcom "ALF", TVLine has learned exclusively.

The original series which centered on a hairy, sarcastic extraterrestrial who is taken in by a middle-class family ran for four seasons NBC, with the series finale airing March 24, 1990. All told, 102 episodes were produced.

Warner Bros. is searching for a writer to spearhead the update. A rep for the studio declined to comment for this story.




Despite being off the air for nearly three decades, "ALF" remains something of a hot pop culture property.

In recent years, the title character has popped up (or been referenced) on a number of TV series (The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, Mr. Robot) and films (Guardians of the Galaxy, Hot Tub Time Machine).

He has also appeared in commercials for DirecTV and Radio Shack, as well as the video game XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Reruns can currently be found on Me-TV and via the Starz app.

going with the current trend in "reboots" they should have Alf played by Lewis Black in a bad toupee.

ALF reboot is reportedly dead

According to TVLine's Michael Ausiello, "Cats far and wide can breathe a sigh of relief: I’m hearing the proposed reboot is not moving forward at this time after failing to attract a suitor." Ausiello first reported that Warner Bros. TV was interested in rebooting the 1980s NBC alien comedy on Aug. 1.

Hopefully it stays dead. I love the original and a reboot would be horrible.
