Kevin Bacon Says a TREMORS Reboot Pilot is Coming to SYFY

Kevin Bacon Says Tremors Series is Going to Syfy

Syfy Sets Pilot for 'Tremors' Reboot

Not only does Bacon plan on producing, but he approached Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum and made a decision to turn it into an eight-part series on Syfy instead of a rebooted film.

Golden Globe Award-winning Taking Chance star Kevin Bacon reveals that Syfy has opted to obtain the rights to the planned TV adaptation of Tremors.

The story will follow Valentine as he must return to the small town of Perfection to defend it against the killer Graboid worms, but will have to "overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex".

Miller, who created CW's "The Secret Circle", penned the pilot and will serve as showrunner and executive producer, alongside Bacon and David Schiff.

The TV series would pick up 25 years after the original film left off. "I just got to thinking, 'Where would this guy end up after 25 years?"

Antetokounmpo also earned an All-Defensive Second Team nod, the first for a Buck since Alvin Robertson in 1990-1991. In addition to winning ROY, the Rookie of the Year was also named to All-Rookie First Team.

Bear in mind that Syfy has only ordered a pilot for a new Tremors show, so there is no guarantee the show will actually ever come to fruition.

Should "Tremors" be greenlit, it would mark Bacon's second current TV show, joining his starring role on Amazon's "I Love Dick".

If that doesn't get horror fans excited then they'll be delighted to know that Jason Blum is also involved with the project. But while at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, #KevinBacon told ScreenDaily, "We are going to do a pilot for Syfy". At the moment, there's no news on whether the original cast will join Bacon to fight off the Graboids (you know what they say, many hands make light work) but we can only hope they will.

The new Tremors TV show isn't expected to maintain continuity with the sequels or the first television series, but it would still be a nice touch to see Gross return as Burt one more time. 2003 also saw the launch of a first, short-lived Tremors TV series. However, should the series be picked up by Syfy, it'll mark Bacon's second TV series, as he now stars in Amazon's I Love Dick.
