It’s been almost two years since SYFY decided to pass on the Tremors reboot series and Kevin Bacon’s “dream of revisiting the world of Perfection” came to a halt, but the actor hasn’t given up hope just yet. When asked about the failed TV series during a recent interview with JoBlo, the Footloose star explained that despite making a pilot both he and Blumhouse thought was “fantastic,” ultimately, it was SYFY decision not to move forward.

I have a very specific thing that happened, which was I wanted to reboot Tremors. And worked very hard on it and did a fantastic pilot with Blumhouse. Andrew Miller was the writer of it. We shot the pilot. I thought it was cool and SYFY decided not to go forward with it. I liked that character because it was the only character I really looked at and said, ‘I wanna know where he is 25 years later.’ We left him at a certain point, he had this extraordinary thing with these worms, underground worms. He’s not a smart man, kind of a loser, but he was able to fight these worms. Now let’s see what happened to him 25 years down the line.
When asked about the possibility of another studio picking the Tremors series up, Bacon said that although he’s beginning to lose hope, “stranger things have happened.”
I don’t know the answer to that. I feel like we’ve explored the options. But, listen, you never know. Stranger things have happened.
Do you think a studio should reconsider and give the Tremors reboot a chance or is the franchise better off as is? Let us know in the comments below.
