Sharknado 2 Is Coming — to New York City!

Sharknado 2 Sequel NewsAs if New York City didn’t have it bad enough, what with the mangy costumed characters milking tourists for tips in Times Square, now a Sharknado is looming.

Syfy on Wednesday gave a green light to a sequel to last week’s super-buzzy, well-rated shlockfest, which starred Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Tara Reid (American Pie) — and this time, the fishy catastrophe will target the Big Apple.

“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,” Syfy EVP Thomas Vitale said in forecasting the next ‘nado. “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.”

As for the official title to the inevitable follow-up, Syfy is apparently turning a blind eye to my Sharknado vs. Piranhacane idea and instead opening it up to fans. So go ahead, tweet your suggested subtitle for Sharknado 2: ______ to @SyfyMovies, using the #Sharknado hashtag, and the cabler Syfy will select the best submission in time for the sequel’s 2014 release.

Which C- and D-list actors would you like to see fend off the next Sharknado?

  • Sharkaclysm. Still like mine the best. Sharkpocalypse would be okay, too. Maybe #3?

    • Too long a title. Hollywood likes to keep it short and sweet. Something like, “Sharknado 2: Bite the Apple!”

    • I completely agree. I caught the last 45 minutes or so the other night flicking channels and what I saw was absolutely the worst thing I have ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever……….ever seen on film or TV. Everything about it was absolutely horrible. From the script to the pacing to the editing to the inconsistent lighting. The ludicrous concept goes without saying; so…. you get the idea. Everyone and anyone associated with producing and broadcasting this garbage shouldn’t be permitted to work anywhere at anything ever again. They should go broke and die miserably on the streets for what they have done to civilization.

  • Hopefully the TVLine offices won’t be damaged by the flying sharks – unless Aus wants to cameo ;-)

  • I saw this on another website but it was too good to pass up: “Sharknado 2: Sharks and the City”
