It looks like an ‘ALF’ reboot may not happen…

Park that nostalgia for now...

A reboot of ALF may not see the light of day, according to reports.

TV Line claims that a potential rehash of the late ’80s sitcom, which is centred on an alien that lives with an American family, has failed to attract interest from production companies.

Rumours were rife earlier this summer that Warner Bros. was looking to bring the TV show back onto the small screen. There were discussions that original writers Tom Patchett and Paul Fusco would be involved in the new project.


TV producers are planning a reboot ‘ALF’

Despite reports, an ALF reboot could well still be on the cards. If undertaken, the production would join in on the recent influx of remakes including The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Clueless.

The series’ titular character, Gordon Shumway, is a friendly extraterrestrial nicknamed ALF (Alien Life Form), who one day crash lands in the garage of the Tanner family.

ALF ran for four seasons from 1986-1990 on NBC in the US.

In August 2012 it was reported that Sony Pictures Animation had acquired the rights to ALF to produce a CGI-Live action hybrid feature. The Smurfs producer Jordan Kerner is reportedly producing the film along with Patchett and Fusco.
