After saying he'd love to reprise his role as Valentine McKee from the original Tremors earlier this year, it looks like it's happening! Kevin Bacon is currently developing a TV series reboot of the popular sci-fi horror franchise for the small screen. It will be the second time Tremors has been turned into a TV show. But it will be the first time that Kevin Bacon has returned to the series in any capacity following the debut of the original cult hit in 1990.
Kevin Bacon isn't just going to star on the show. He's also executive producing. Blumhouse Productions is teaming up with Universal Cable Productions for this weekly episodic adventure series. It will be based on the original story, which finds two ranch hands battling giant killer worms. So far, the franchise has spawned 5 movies, the latest of which, titled Tremors 5: Bloodlines, debuted this summer. That movie's star, Michael Gross, who is the only actor to appear in every iteration of the saga, also starred in a short lived Syfy series based on his character Burt Gummer. It only survived through 13 episodes before being canceled. All of the movies, except the original, have been direct-to-video projects. It isn't known at this time if Burt Gummer will return, but we can't imagine that he'd be left out.Read More
The original Tremors centers on a small town where residents are getting killed one by one by a strange creatures that dwells beneath the surface, while, at the same time, a seismologist is working in the area detects tremors.

Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross, Reba McEntire, Charlotte Stewart and Ariana Richards also starred in the original Tremors.
This year does mark the 25th anniversary of Tremors, and for some fans, there would be no greater gift than a reboot or a sequel, especially one starring Kevin Bacon.
