Get ready for the new daily show

Three new cast members join Kevin Bacon for the Tremors series

September 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Well, despite us not thinking that this was actually going to happen, the Tremors TV series – starring Kevin Bacon (woot!) – is moving ahead and has added three new cast members.

Emily Tremaine, Megan Ketch and Shiloh Fernandez are set to star alongside Kevin Bacon in the Syfy pilot Tremors, a reboot of the 1990 cult classic film, with original star Bacon reprising his role. The project hails from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Prods.

On top of this, we have some new details about the new series and the roles the trio will play as the show will be written by Andrew Miller and is to be directed by Vincenzo Natali. The story will see the town of Perfection under siege from the monsters that destroyed it all those years ago again and the only hope is Bacon’s Valentine McKee, the hero from the first movie. Although this time – and this is sounding more and more like Ash Vs Evil Dead – he has to overcome old age, alcoholism and a misplaced hero complex.

As for the new cast members, well:

Tremaine will play the role of Emily McKee, the whip-smart daughter of Val (Bacon) with a bright future ahead of her. She is newly graduated and stops by Perfection to visit her dad, but quality time with him is the standard disappointment, as Emily sinks further into the understanding that he’ll never change.

Ketch will play Mindy Sterngood, a charismatic young doctor with an eyebrow-raising fixation on the much-older Val, who saved her from a Graboid at age 9. But Mindy is hiding something that makes her an unanticipated threat: Compelling as she is, more cunning is her mask.

Fernandez will play Nico Garza, who has been killing time in Perfection, working in Earl’s Graboid Waste Gobbling company, waiting for the right moment to split. The last thing he wants is to turn out like Val, who’s stayed stuck in nowheresville all these years.


So there you have it, the next bus to Perfection, Nevada is almost here and we can’t wait to get on board!

Will you be?

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
