ALF reboot no longer moving foward

Alf appeared on the small screen back in the late 80’s.




ALF, the hit sitcom centered a furry extraterrestrial, had a planned reboot. Now, TV Line is reporting that we won’t be seeing the Alien Life Form from Melmac any time soon as the project i s mostly likely ‘dead’.

“Cats far and wide can breathe a sigh of relief. I’m hearing the proposed reboot is not moving forward at this time after failing to attract a suitor”, mentions the section Ask Ausiello on the TV Line reports.

One of the concepts for the new series involved ALF “emerging from Area 51–where he has been held captive since the original series finale–and observing how much the world has changed since that time.”

Reports indicate that the death of the project is due to networks not being interested. This is kind of surprising because everyone seems to love reboots and remakes these days.

The show originally ran for four seasons and produced 99 episodes. This included three one-hour episodes that were divided into two parts for syndication, totaling 102 episodes.

Alf was a hit t.v. show back in the late 80’and early 90’s. It told the story of a smart-mouthed creature, ALF (aka Alien Life Form). He then crash-lands in a suburban garage, leaving his spaceship beyond repair. He’s ugly, he’s short, he’s got a bad attitude.

The family that found the alien took in the furry creature. He then proceeds to of course, comment on humankind and tries to eat the cat — a delicacy on his home planet of Melmac.

Back in August, word got out that Warner Bros. was looking to make either an ALF reboot or sequel.
ALF was created by Paul Fusco and Tom Patchett. Fusco was also the puppeteer and voice of ALF.

Netflix Cancels American Vandal

Netflix has canceled true-crime documentary satire American Vandal just after two seasons.

American Vandal will not return for a third season. We’re very grateful to the creators, writers, cast and crew for bringing their innovative comedy to Netflix and to the fans and critics who embraced its unique and unconventional humor.”

The news comes after Netflix canceled Marvel series Iron Fist and Luke Cage after both aired their second seasons.

But fans shouldn’t be completely worried. This might not be the last we will see of Peter Maldonado and Sam Ecklund.

CBS TV Studios, which produced the series, has already received multiple incoming calls from buyers about potentially saving the series with a third season somewhere else, EW has learned.

That would be a first for a Netflix series, especially after the platform has become known for picking up series that would not get greenlit elsewhere.

The first season, which aired in September 2017, focused on an investigation at a Southern California high school into who drew dicks on 27 cars in the parking lot.

Jimmy Tatro played Dylan Maxwell, who was accused of spray painting the genitalia at the beginning of the series.

The second season relocated to an elite private high school in Washington, and centered on who was behind a series of pranks involving laxatives by someone calling themselves the “Turd Burglar.”

The series was created by Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda. Dan Lagana executive produced the series alongside Joe Farrell for Funny or Die and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3Arts.
