'Sharknado 2' Is Happening — and YOU Can Name It


'Sharknado' (Syfy)

'Sharknado 2: Even Sharknado-ier' (Syfy).
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water (and the streets, swimming pools, and skies), Syfy has given the green light to Sharknado 2!

The campastic Sharknado, which featured Ian Ziering and Tara Reid battling a tornado made out of hungry super sharks, debuted on July 11 and caused a storm on social media, generating more tweets than the infamous Game of Thrones Red Wedding.

The Asylum, the production company that helmed the first Sharknado, will also produce Sharnado 2, which will devastate New York City. Syfy will also hold a Twitter contest to help give the sure-to-be-an-instant-classic the perfect silly subtitle. Fans will be able to tweet their subtitle to @SyfyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado and Syfy will select the best submission as the subtitle for Sharknado 2.

Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy, said in a statement: “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.”
