After a the original announcement of a sequel fans took to Twitter in their thousands to suggest potential titles, with producers eventually deciding on the not so creative Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado told the story of April (Tara Reid) and Finn (Ian Ziering) who are the only people able to save New York after a freak weather system floods the city with shark infested water. The TV movie became an unlikely hit thanks in part to social media, though it dividing opinion with some calling it the 'worst movie ever'.

Thomas Vitale, executive Vice-president of  programming and original movies told The Hollywood Reporter "Sharknado was an extraordinary 'perfect storm' which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing about Sharknado! By reassembling the creative team -- and dropping sharks onto New York's iconic sites -- we're unleashing yet another 'fin' wave of shark-mania,” The CEO of Asylum, the films distributer, Paul Bales added, ”We’re thrilled to be able to bring back the talent that made Sharknado a hit. Can lightning strike twice? I don't know, but it's a scientific fact that you're more likely to be killed by lightning than by a shark. This film will have lightning and sharks, so that's got to count for something.”
