Anyone remember the old Tremors (1990) movie starring Kevin Bacon? Well, guess what? It looks like Tremors is coming back to the small screen and they're trying their hand at another television series. Now, for those that didn't know, Tremors had a tv series back in 2003 called Tremors: The Series that was aired on the Sci-Fi channel and ran for one season with thirteen episodes. Tremors: The Series took place after Tremors 3: Back to Perfection and starred Michael Gross.
This time, the Tremors tv show will take place after the 1990 movie, will star Kevin Bacon and ignore all of the sequels. Here's the premise for the Sy-Fy channel's rebooted series, "Val McKee (Kevin Bacon) never left Perfection and has sort of become a town joke due to not being able to get over the one time he got to be a hero. It seems Graboids haven’t attacked in 25 years, and Perfection has moved on. For now anyway."
Here's the sad news, by ignoring the sequels the fans will be loosing out on one of the staples of the Tremors franchise and that is... Michael Gross. Yep, Gross has already confirmed that he will not be apart of the new Tremors series. Now, stay with me! I know you're slowing balling up your fist to shake it at the heavens while screaming about the Gross injustice of the world, BUT it looks like Gross is still up for some Graboid hunting and we'll be seeing it really soon. Yep, Tremors 6 is coming straight to video May 30th, 2018 and here's what we know about it so far.
The sequel finds Burt Gummer and his son Travis at a remote research station, where they must go up against Graboids that have been converted into living weapons. It's directed by Don Michael Paul and written by John Whelpley.
Sadly, that's not a lot of information, but fans will still be able to get their Gross on. ...I'm so sorry, that sounded way better in my head. Anyways, between the new Sy-Fy channel's run starring Kevin Bacon and a new Michael Gross Tremors movie, we should be fully stocked up on Graboid hijinks for a few.
