A decision has been reached. After reviewing more than 5,000 Twitter submissions to its "Name 'Sharknado 2' " social media contest, Syfy announced the title of the eagerly anticipated "Sharknado" sequel is "Sharknado 2: The Second One."
Thomas Vitale, executive vice president, programming and original movies at Syfy, said, "Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name 'Sharknado 2.' This response is another reminder of how 'Sharknado' has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum."
"Sharknado 2: The Second One," which will also be produced by The Asylum, hits land July 2014. The movie will be set in New York City.
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"), teamed 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.
