    Im really not interested in the new tv series starring Kevin Bacon. He gave up on the franchise years ago and always said Tremors was the low point in his career and he regrets ever doing it. Now that his career has tanked and he knows Tremors still has a loyal fanbase all these years later he wants back in. AND he thinks he doesnt need Michael Gross to star in it with him. Its like he is saying "Thanks for keeping the franchise alive all these years while i was off doing interviews about how much i hated tremors. But now im back and we dont need you anymore". Meanwhile Michael Gross is the one who has carried the franchise on his shoulders since the second movie. He is TREMORS! Not Kevin Bacon. I heard the new tv series will take place modern day and continue the story of the first film by ignoring the events of Tremors 2-5 and the 2003 tv series. That will be awful with or without Michael Gross. Sorry but true. I would rather have a Tremors 6 movie that continues the story that fans have been following for over 25 years now.
