Back in November of last year it was revealed that Kevin Bacon had signed on for a return to the Tremors franchise for a TV adaptation of the cult 1990 horror-comedy, with Bacon also executive producing alongside Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions. Since then we’ve had no further updates on the project, but the actor has now confirmed to Collider that the series is moving forward at Amazon Studios.
“We’re at Amazon,” said Bacon, who will be reprising the role of Valentine McKee in the series, set some 25 years after the original movie. “We’re still waiting for a draft, but I’m 100% on board with that. It’s great. It’s a super cool idea. They went and made a bunch of sequels to the movie. I want to put those aside because, first of all, I wasn’t in them.

Back in November, Kevin Bacon revealed that he is set to star in and executive produce a new TV series based on his 1990 cult classic Tremors. We haven't heard much about the series since then, but in a new interview, Kevin Bacon confirmed that the show is moving forward at Amazon. The actor currently stars on the new Amazon Studios pilot I Love Dick.

Late last year, news broke that Kevin Bacon was looking to return to Perfection as Valentine “Val” McKee in a new Tremors TV series. While we haven’t heard much about the series since then, Bacon recently spoke briefly with Collider about returning to the giant worm-ridden world of Tremors.
Speaking with Collider to promote the pilot episode of a new show, Bacon mentioned that the Tremors TV series is currently in development at Amazon and that they are awaiting a script draft from Andrew Miller, who is writing the project.
While four sequels and a short-lived Sci-Fi Channel series were released after the first film’s debut in 1990, Bacon is more focused on following the events of the original movie than those that followed it:
“They went and made a bunch of sequels to the movie. I want to put those aside because, first of all, I wasn’t in them. »
