Tremors TV show coming to SyFy with Kevin Bacon in tow!

06.26.2017

Well, it looks like yet another movie is getting the TV show treatment, and this time it's the cult-classic creature feature TREMORS, which will be coming to SyFy. It won't even be the first time, as there was a show (also on SyFy when it was still called Sci-Fi) that came out in 2003, but was quickly cancelled.

However, what makes this interesting isn't its existence (I bet you weren't aware we're on the fifth fucking movie, which came out just a couple years ago), but rather who's involved in the new project. Apparently Kevin Bacon - the main character of the first movie - is not only starring as his original character, but actually approached Jason Blum to get it produced himself. According to Bacon:

We are going to do a pilot for Syfy...It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later...It’s just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero.

So, unlike a lot of movie-to-TV adaptations, this won't be a reboot or re-imagining, but a straight up sequel. Which could be interesting. I wonder if it will contradict the various direct-to-DVD sequels? Or if anyone will care if it does? I guess only time will tell.

No official release date yet, but we'll keep you posted as the project develops. This is definitely one I'll be keeping an eye on, at least. But what do you Schmoes think of this news? Sound off below!

Interesting...........

I have always liked Kevin bacon with Tremors being on of his best movies. I'm not sure how this will work and I have never seen the low rent sequels or failed series, but this may require a quick peek.

I heard about this but I wasn't sure if it was actually happening. Wish it was on a different network but at least it's not the CW or it would be a teen drama.

DOA

Syfy hasn't had a good show in decades... I was hoping for a digital platform, FX or AMC. Not the place people tune into for fucking Sharknado.

SyFy has gotten better with their series. The Expanse is pretty good and Blood Drive has potential.

Wild Things

Based on the movie Wild Things I want a TV show (short 8-13 episode season) that captures the vibe of 90s erotic thrillers like Sliver, Basic Instinct or Wild Things and takes the time to roll out their characters and twist rich storylines over a single season arc. Should be an anthology format with new characters each season so you can pull in good actors who wouldn't sign a multiple year contract for a regular TV show. It could go the recurring ensemble road of American Horror Story though.

I watched a few episodes of the 2003 Sci-Fi series and they were subpar. The CGI was terrible, but it was nice to see Burt Gummer doing his schtick. I hope the new series fares better. Throw some cameos in there. Burt Gummer NEEDS to make an appearance, if not a recurring role. It'd be great to see Fred Ward pop up or that weaselly Bobby Jacoby (Melvin). A brief reunion, even if bitter, would be fantastic between Michael Gross and Reba McEntire. Just leave Jamie Kennedy out of

Diner is one of my all-time favorite movies. It will likely never get a follow-up, nor does it need to have one, but I loved those characters. That's the only Kevin Bacon movie I've ever wanted a sequel to.

I'll give Tremors a shot.

Although it could have used a better climax, I liked his invisible man in Hollow Man. That might be fun to revisit.
