Looks Like That Tremors TV Show Won't Shake Out

This is one reboot that couldn't worm its way back

Amanda Bell

Welp, it looks like we can all put away the explosives and tread loudly on the ground again because Syfy's Tremors reboot is dead on arrival.

Kevin Bacon delivered the bad news to fans of the zany sci-fi/western series on Instagram Saturday, revealing that the network opted not to pick up the pilot, despite a seismic showing by him in his return to the role of Valentine McKee.

"Sad to report that my dream of revisiting the world of Perfection will not become a reality," he wrote. "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 new Tremors take was expected to feature Bacon in his old worm-hunting cowboy role 30 years after the events of the 1990 cult favorite film.

Bacon had previously said Valentine was "the only character I've played that I've ever thought about revisiting" and praised showrunner Andrew Miller's "fun and scary" vision for the new, sure-to-be-sandy landscape of the story. Alas.
