Not even Melmacians are safe from being resurrected for modern television consumption, as Warner Bros.is working on a reboot of ALF.

Every now and again there's a reboot or revival of a classic TV show which I can get behind, but for the most part, it just comes across as lazy, particularly as there are so many wonderful original TV shows on the air today. No other details are available, and there's still no network lined up, and TV Line points out that they're still searching for a writer for the new show. The geniuses who originally created the show, Paul Fusco (who also stars as the titular alien) and Tom Patchett are both involved, so you purists can put your pitchforks away. In the case of ALF, this could do a lot for those who are prone to latching onto 80s nostalgia.

In the original TV series, ALF - which stands for Alien Life Form - was from the planet Melmac.

Despite being off the air for almost three decades, ALF - an acronym for Alien Life Form - has remained a steadfast favourite of 1980s television.

ALF ran from 1986-1990, but the series, particularly the title character, have remained part of the pop-culture landscape over the decades. 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. Warner Bros.is reportedly looking into a series reboot.

"ALF" has continued to remain in the pop culture consciousness, despite leaving the air almost 30 years ago.
