Kevin Bacon Celebrates 25th Anniversary of ‘Tremors’ by Making a ‘Tremors’ TV Show


Kevin Bacon has announced that he plans to star and executive produce a TV adaptation of the 1990 film Tremors.

In the case the name doesn’t ring a bell, Tremors was a series of horror films from the ’90s revolving around people fighting off or otherwise escaping from giant, earth-shaking underground worms in the desert.

Bacon starred in the original film, but not the four sequels or the Sci Fi Channel (now SyFy)’s TV series based on the franchise. According to Entertainment Weekly, he will return to his character from the film, Valentine McKee, in the show.

Bacon teased the franchise’s return in May in an interview with British newspaper Metro. “I’d love to do something else with Tremors and revisit the character 25 years later,” he said.

The new series, currently in development at Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions, will be written by The Secret Circle screenwriter Andrew Miller. Though the show is still of development, it will reportedly return to the fictional town from the original, Perfection, Nevada.

While the series has not been picked up by a network for broadcast, many outlets report there are “multiple bidders” for the production.
