Syfy Channel Killed Kevin Bacon’s TREMORS Reboot Series

Kevin Bacon

It is a sad day for me as a fan of Tremors and Kevin Bacon and I am sure it is a sad day for all Tremors fans out there. I was super excited about Kevin Bacon coming back to the franchise after all these years to reprise his role of Valentine in the reboot series for Syfy. But according to Bacon, that series isn’t moving forward. It’s dead in the water for good. Bacon broke the news on Instagram, saying:

“Sad to report that my dream of revisiting the world of Perfection will not become a reality. 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!”

The series was set 25 years after the events of the first movie and found Valentine McKee (Bacon) trying to save the town again — but this time, also battling age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex. He also had a daughter who would have played into the story.

I’m actually very disappointed with the news that we won’t see this series. It sounds like it a solid fun series and I was so much excited for it since I heard it’s pilot was super awesome. I am not a fan of Syfy Channel, but I would have watched this for sure!
