Tremors series not moving forward at SyFy
The 59-year-old actor, who was set to reprise his role as Valentine “Val” McKee, took to his Instagram to report that the cable network has decided not to move forward on the pilot, which he calls “fantastic,” and that he is disappointed his dream of returning to Perfection will not come to fruition.
#Tremors Sad to report that my dream of revisiting the world of Perfection will not become a reality. 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 pilot for the series was directed by Vincenzo Natali, director of Cube and Splice, and scripted by Andrew Miller, the creator of The CW’s The Secret Circle, and saw Bacon reprise his role for the first time since the first film, as well as Fred Ward reprising his role of Earl Bassett from the first two films, in addition to newcomers P.J. Byrne (Rampage), Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead) and Emily Tremaine (The Blacklist).
Though the plot details were kept under wraps, the series was announced to be a continuation of the original film, returning the action to the small desert town of Perfection, Nevada where the graboid epidemic originated.
