Kevin Bacon Tremors series moves to Syfy

In an interesting turn of events, the new Tremors TV series headlined by Kevin Bacon will now move from Amazon Studios to Syfy for a pilot, reports Screen Daily.

Bacon had originally revealed that Amazon would air a 10-episode sequel, which looks set to ignore continuity from the film series and take place 25 years on from the 1990 original.

The series order is now reported to be eight episodes, produced by Blumhouse Productions.

An earlier incarnation of Syfy, then the Sci-Fi Channel, produced the original 13-episode Tremors TV series in 2003, cancelling it after just 13 episodes before it had a chance to find its feet.

The complex process of making the series is detailed at length in Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors.

As Bacon explained in Seeking Perfection back in 2015, he’s keen to revisit the town of Perfection and the character of Val McKee:

“This guy is one of the few characters I’ve played that I’d be interested in seeing where he is 25 years later. Who does that guy grow into? There’s a lot of possibilities about what could have happened in his life in 25 years – for me it always comes back to the character and that would be fun to explore.”

Meanwhile, Tremors 6 is gearing up for release in January 2018.

Amazon’s Tremors series is ‘a Donald Trump story’ reveals writer

The writer of Amazon’s upcoming Tremors mini-series has revealed that Kevin Bacon will star as “a horrible loser” and that the town of Perfection is “coming face to face with failure”.

Things have been pretty quiet on the Tremors front of late, with news of the rival TV and direct-to-video sequels relegated to occasional social media posts or regurgitated news items on entertainment blogs.

This changed earlier this week during the 300th edition of The Writers Panel podcast, which featured interviews with a number of Hollywood screenwriters.

One of those on the panel was Andrew Miller, who is penning the 10-episode Tremors series for Amazon. When asked to talk about the show by host Ben Blacker, Miller revealed that the series is “about failure.” More

“IT IS HAPPENING!” So screamed the announcement on Michael Gross’ Facebook page last night as he revealed that Tremors 6 has been given the greenlight from Universal Studios Entertainment.

He went on to confirm that his Tremors 5 co-star, Jamie Kennedy, would be back for more monster hunting, along with director Don Michael Paul.

Nothing else is known about the latest entry in the Tremors saga, though it’s likely the film won’t see the return of original creators, SS Wilson and Brent Maddock, who declined to be part of the rebooted franchise back in 2014 when they discovered they wouldn’t have any creative control over the project – read their full statement.

Kevin Bacon has been taking part in a promotional Twitter Q&A for his latest film, The Darkness, during which he revealed more on the Tremors TV series he first discussed last year.

In 2015 he explained he was teaming up with Blumhouse Productions on a TV reboot, to be written by Andrew Miller.

When asked on Twitter whether he’d be keen to make another Tremors, Bacon explained:

“I would love to make another Tremors. In fact we’re working on a 10-episode mini-series right now.”

Bacon also responded to a question about whether a Tremors series should feature him teaching Graboids to dance…

Bacon discussed his desire to return to the character of Valentine McKee in Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors:

“This guy is one of the few characters I’ve played that I’d be interested in seeing where he is 25 years later. Who does that guy grow into? There’s a lot of possibilities about what could have happened in his life in 25 years – for me it always comes back to the character and that would be fun to explore.”
