Sharknado Officially Getting Sequel, Syfy Announces Contest to Name New Movie

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Another Sharknado is coming!

Syfy has officially greenlit a sequel to its notorious disaster movie, which took a bite out of social media when it premiered last week.

The second installment moves the action from Los Angeles to New York, where — you guessed it — another tornado full of sharks invades the city.

It’s not yet known whether original stars Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will return, though both have expressed interest.

“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel,” said Thomas Vitale, executive vice president of programming and original movies for Syfy, in a statement.

He continued, “What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year.”

But that’s not all.

Syfy is also inviting fans to name the new movie.

Viewers can tweet their suggestions to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado.
