The wild success of SyFy’s Sharknado last week has led the network to greenlight a sequel, Sharknado 2.
Sharknado 2 will premiere in 2014. The title is not finalized, but fans will be able to help by tweeting a subtitle for the film on Twitter to @SyFyMovies using the #Sharknado hashtag.
Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy, said: “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. 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.”
“In Sharknado, regulars of a beachside bar including owner Fin (Ian Ziering/Beverly Hills 90210), bartender Nova (Cassie Scerbo/Make It Or Break It) and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone) team up with Fin’s ex-wife April (Tara Reid/Scrubs) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies,” reads Syfy’s synopsis.
1.4 million viewers turned into Sharknado. It became an internet sensation thanks to its ridiculous premise and corny lines.
