Ryan Reynolds Brings Back The ‘80s With ‘Biker Mice From Mars’ & ‘Alf’

Some of the most cult classic shows from the 80s are coming back – and it’s all thanks to Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds is reportedly reviving ALF and Biker Mice from Mars via his own production company, Maximum Effort.

ALF will return as sponsored segments known as ‘Maximum Moments’ on Maximum Effort Channel. Biker Mice from Mars will be a reboot of the beloved show.

“At Maximum Effort, we love taking risks and blurring the lines between shows and sponsorship because we believe both can be equally entertaining,” Reynolds said. “Besides my irrational love of ALF growing up, one of the reasons we licensed this show was precisely because Paul, Shout! Studios and our intrepid brand partners wanted to plot with us to bring ALF back to life.” 

ALF was a popular puppet sitcom from 1986 to 1990. The show centred around a family that takes in an alien life form (ALF) after he crash-lands in their garage and hides him from nosy neighbours and government agencies.

As for Biker Mice from Mars, the animated series follows three anthropomorphic mice motorcyclists named Throttle, Modo and Vinnie who escape a war on their home planet Mars before arriving to defend the Earth from the evil that destroyed their homeland.

“Some people know that I am a motorcycle enthusiast,” said Reynolds. “So, it was only natural for us to jump on board Biker Mice from Mars. Maximum Effort and Fubo look forward to putting a new spin on this cult classic with our friends at Nacelle.”

The new Biker Mice from Mars will be directed by Brian Volk-Weiss, founder of Nacelle. Volk-Weiss will executive produce alongside Cisco Henson, Matt Kravitsky and Michael Goodman for Nacelle; George Dewey, Kevin Hill, Patrick Gooing and Reynoldsfor Maximum Effort; and David Gandler and Pamela Duckworth for FUBO.
