Tremors TV reboot officially dead at SyFy

After a couple decades off, Kevin Bacon won't be rejoining the fight against the Graboids as he hoped.


If you were looking forward to seeing Kevin Bacon return to Perfection to fight off giant worms (Graboids) again, there is some bad news.

After years of development, the television reboot continuation of the long-running Tremors franchise is officially dead. Bacon took to Instagram, using a picture of a bobblehead of his character Valentine McKee, to announced that SyFy had decided to pass on the series after reviewing the pilot episode.

“Sad to report that my dream of revisiting the world of Perfection will not become a reality,” Bacon wrote. “Although we made a fantastic pilot (IMHO) the network has decided not to move forward. Thanks to our killer cast and everyone behind the scenes who worked so hard. And always keep one eye out for GRABOIDS!”

Tremors was another in a long line of franchises that was looking to join the slew of revival/reboot/continuation shows that are becoming more and more popular at various networks and streaming platforms the last few years.

The pilot was set to take place over twenty years after the original 1990 film starring Bacon, Fred Ward, Reba McEntire and Michael Gross. Bacon only starred in the original picture which became a cult classic and spawned numerous sequels and straight-to-DVD installments along with a previous television series in 2003.

While the TV series is dead, the Graboids threat isn’t over yet though. Original film star Michael Gross is returning as Burt Gummer once more in the direct-to-DVD sixth film in the franchise, Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell which arrives in May.
