ALF is the latest '80s sitcom getting a reboot, so hide your pet cats now

Brace yourselves (and hide your cats), because another unnecessary revival is apparently on its way – and now it’s ALF‘s turn.

Further proof that we are in the never-ending midst of reboot season, TVLine is reporting that beloved ’80s sitcom ALF is due to get the reboot treatment thanks to Warner Bros.

The original series, which ended nearly 30 years ago, followed the lovable, sarcastic and somewhat terrifying Alien Life Form Gordon Shumway. Or ALF for short.

ALF focused on the alien’s unexpected arrival in the Tanner family’s garage, running on US network NBC for four seasons before concluding in 1990.

In other reboot news, Kelsey Grammer has thrown cold water on the idea of a “soft reboot” of classic ’90s comedy Frasier.

Addressing rumours of a new series charting Dr Frasier Crane’s move from Seattle, Grammer admitted that his heart wasn’t really in it.

“There are rumours right now,” he said. “I have discussed the idea with some people and I’m not sure I want to do it. That’s really where we’re at.”

Frasier aired on NBC for 11 seasons as a spin-off of Cheers, kicking off in 1993 before ending in 2004. The series quickly became a phenomenon in its own right and remains one of the most acclaimed US comedies in history, winning an incredible 37 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Anyone heard of the phrase, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’?
