The rude, cat-eating, sarcastic alien life form, better known as ALF, just might be coming back to the small screen according the Entertainment Weekly. ALF ran on NBC for four seasons during the 1980's which shared the antics of an alien being from the planet melmac crash-landed into the suburban home of the Tanner family.
According to the report, the show isn’t a done deal, but it is in the early stages of development at Warner Bros. The new show would involve ALF returning to earth to live with a new family and have new adventures and would involve Tom Patchett, the creator of the show and Paul Fusco, the voice of ALF.
While ALF was hugely popular with kids and families, his own co-star, Anne Schedeen, who played Kate Tanner the mother, hated it. “Believe me, there was no joy on the set,” said Schedeen to People magazine. “It was a technical nightmare—extremely slow, hot and tedious. If you had a scene with ALF, it took centuries. A 30-minute show took 20, 25 hours to shoot.”
