Kevin Bacon shared some bad news this weekend for all of the Tremors fans out there who were excited about his upcoming television series based on the franchise: Syfy has decided to pass on the series- which was set to take place 25 years after the events of the original film- after a pilot episode was produced. Bacon took to his Instagram account to explain the news to his fans:
Bacon’s classy, funny, and professional response to the sad news reveals that he was legitimately excited about the project; and, hopefully, he will have another chance at returning to the world of Tremors sometime in the future. Fans of the series who are happy to settle with a Bacon-less Tremors can look forward to the release of Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, a direct-to-video sequel starring Jamie Kennedy, which releases on May 1st.
