If you’ve felt some rumbling beneath your feet in the last few days, it may not be just those pesky earthquakes that seem to be more prevalent around the globe.  On Tuesday Universal Pictures released the first official trailer for the next installment in the Tremors timeline Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, which will be the fifth sequel to the 1990 cult favorite.  The release was announced by actor Michael Gross on his main Facebook page, complete with link (see below.)

Tremors TV Series Announces New Cast Member

The Tremors franchise continues to roll.  With an early 2018 release for the sixth installment in the film series, Syfy’s upcoming Tremors television series is making news as well.  According to Deadline, the show (which will star Hollywood heavyweight and film veteran Kevin Bacon) has signed on John Ellison Conlee (Medium, Boardwalk Empire) to the cast.  He will join a project that already features Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead), Toks Olagundoye (Castle) and, of course, Bacon.

Conlee will play Harlan Maylor, who is the best friend of Valentine McKee (Bacon) and his closest ally in the battle against the mutant sand creatures.  Living a healthy and positive lifestyle, Harlan will be a productive counter-balance to McKee’s alcoholic haze of guns and depression as they risk their lives to secure the town of Perfection Valley, Nevada from the killer worms.  Conlee brings a background of theater acting to the show as well, having starred on Broadway in the stage productions of The Full Monty and 1776, among others.  SyFy is really classing up this horror-comedy franchise! read more

Kevin Bacon has been talking about wanting to return to the world of Tremors in the form of a television series for over a year. Based on his recent, comments it sounds like this dream will soon become reality! He recently told Screen that Syfy has ordered a pilot episode for a planned eight episode series to be produced by Bacon and Jason Blum (InsidiousSplitWhiplash). 

Here’s what Bacon had to say about the development:

“We are going to do a pilot for Syfy… It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later. It is a really good movie… I don’t go back and watch my movies but because we were doing this one, I had to go back and look at it. It’s just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero.” read more

In an interview with Collider’s Christina Radish, Kevin Bacon reported that the long-rumored Television adaptation of Tremors is in development at Amazon.  No timetable or production update was offered, but the announcement gives fans of the sand worn cult classic hope that the series will eventually “come up for air” on the streaming service.
