TMZ Look out Manhattan … THE FLYING SHARKS ARE COMING TO THE EAST COAST!!!!! Syfy has officially greenlit a sequel to “Sharknado” — the Ian Ziering/Tara Reid flick about sharks invading Los Angeles — only this time, the great whites will touch down in New York City. One of the honchos at Syfy released a deliciously cheesy statement saying, “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.” No word if Tara or Ian will be back for the sequel — but both actors told TMZ they’re 100% down to appear … if they’re asked.
When “Sharknado” premiered on the SyFy channel last week, the television movie became a viral sensation, in no small part thanks to our content on SportSmasher.com which made many folks aware of the impending Sharknado (LINK). Following the viral success of Sharknado, the SyFy network quickly announced plans for sequel, except next time, the Sharknado is headed for New York. My city. Bring it on Sharknado, New York City is ready for you, let’s do this!
