ALF set for TV return with reboot in the works

ALF fans will be happy to hear that the beloved 80s TV character is set for a comeback.

Warner Bros. Television is in the early stages of developing a reboot of the classic, according to TV Line.

The popular series, which aired from 1986 to 1990, followed friendly alien ALF (Alien life form), who crash-landed on earth and wound up in the garage of a suburban middle class Californian family (The Tanners).

According to Variety, there’s no writers attached to the project yet but it’s thought it will start off with ALF emerging from Area 51 – where he has been held captive since the original series wrapped.

The original show starred Paul Fusco (who operated the puppet and voiced ALF), Max Wright, Anne Schedeen, Andrea Elson and Benji Gregory.

Fans were devastated when the series ended with poor ALF being hauled off by the Alien Task Force.

Apparently, the major cliffhanger was a ruse to convince the network to renew the show for another series, but the plan failed miserably.

Six years later, Project ALF aired, which was an attempt to explain his devastating disappearance, however it only really managed to tie up a few loose ends.

Let’s hope the reboot finally answers every burning question.
