Six degrees of Kevin Bacon is about to get even easier. The 1990 cult classic Tremors is set for a reboot at SYFY, with Bacon attached to return. So far, no word on whether any other actors from the original film, sequels, or subsequent series (which aired on Sci-Fi in 2003) will make an appearance. But that doesn't mean Bacon is in this alone. Five new actors have been added to the series, Deadline reports.

Tremors picks up 25 years after the first attack, with the return of those killer Graboid worms. Bacon's character, Valentine McKee, must overcome his own personal struggles to defeat them again, and this time, he's joined by P.J. Byrne (Big Little Lies), Hunter Parrish (Weeds), Ebonée Noel (Wrecked), Brandon Jay McLaren (Ransom), and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs). 

Byrne will play a real-estate agent who survived the original Graboid attack and is determined to return Perfection, Nevada, to... well, perfection. Parrish is the leader of a tribe of pot growers intrigued by the "spiritual energy" of town. Noel plays Zoe, a character with precognitive abilities who also seems drawn to the "energy" of the town. McLaren's character represents "The Man" in town, making him not well-liked. Tju will play Perfection's badass drug smuggler.

But will Perfection be able to survive a second Graboid attack? We'll have to wait and see, but when Kevin Bacon's against you, it's going to be an uphill battle.
