Kevin Bacon is returning to Tremors as it becomes a TV series

11.24.2015

We live in a day and age where everything old is becoming new again. Nostalgia is huge business right now, and, if there's a way to capitalize on a property that involves those warm and fuzzy feelings of yesteryear, someone is going to jump all over it.

Starz managed to do that with ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, bringing Bruce Campbell back into the mix after the remake/reboot didn't quite perform as well as everyone had hoped, and now, after a number of sequels failed to live up to the original, TREMORS is traveling down a similar path.

Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are partnering up to develop a TREMORS television series that will bring Kevin Bacon back to the fictional town of Perfection, Nevada, reprising his role as Valentine McKee (he'll also executive produce the series for good measure). No network has committed yet, as the project is currently being shopped around, but several bidders have jumped into the fray in the hopes of securing the show.

This would be Bacon's first time back with anything TREMORS, having never shown up in any of the sequels or the series that aired on Sci-Fi back in 2003.

Kevin Bacon? TREMORS? How do you possibly not tune in to check this idea out?

Has anyone seen the new movie with Jamie Kennedy? Is it any good? I didn't even know there was already a tv series. I'm definitely down for a tv show with bacon returning! Awesome! Bring back Ward, and Michael Gross.

I had to look it up on google but yes, there was already a Tremors TV series back in 2005. Reviews seem to show that it was an okay show that got cancelled after one season. Don't know if this new series will have any connection with the latter though.

In response to the Evil Dead remake comment...

The remake was a great remake/reboot, terrific reviews and a box office success. Your "after the remake/reboot didn't quite perform as well as everyone had hoped" comment is completely unfounded and poor journalism Mr. Donnelly.

How does $97.5mil on a $17mil budget equal "not as well as everyone hoped"?

Hope they bring back Fred Ward as wel. His chemistry with Beacon was just awesome in Tremors.

I've enjoyed everything "Tremors" so far, as long as Michael Gross is in, then so am I.
