Another “classic” sitcom is getting the reboot treatment, with Variety reporting that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a reboot of “ALF.”
The original ran for four seasons on NBC, wrapping up in early 1990.
“No writer is yet attached to the project, which would again explore the misadventures of the titular, cat-eating ALF — which stands for Alien Life Form,” Variety reports. “In the original series, ALF of the planet Melmac crash lands in the suburbs and takes up residence with the middle class Tanner family.”
Variety adds: “One idea that has reportedly been discussed for the reboot would involve ALF emerging from Area 51 — where he has been held captive since the original series finale — and observing how much the world has changed since that time.”
