It's obviously a huge joke, but that's why everyone loves it.
No one expected the original Sharknado to be much more than a laugh, but its sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One was an even bigger hit. Now Syfy has released Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, and there's also news that star Ian Ziering will be back for a fourth romp next year.
'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No' comin' atcha!
The actor, who rose to fame in the 1990s in Beverly Hills 90210, knows that these films are a joke. "It's over the top, but it's over the top in a great way, and I've stopped questioning it," he says. "These movies are not intended for overthinkers, but they've really captured the imagination of sci-fi fans. Sharknado 2 generated such a shockwave that it reverberated over a billion Twitter impressions around the world. It was all top 10 trending topics on Twitter at the same time! Nowhere in any parallel universe did I ever think that would happen in my career."

We’re expecting plenty of boardroom drama this season…
Donald Trump has revealed the latest crop of famous faces hoping to avoid a firing on this season’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’. Trump had previously said that he'd "never had a cast that hated each other more than this cast,” which of course means drama, drama, drama. So who are the unlucky 16 stepping into the boardroom this season?
Who will Donald Trump be firing this season?
First up is reality TV veteran Kate Gosselin (remember her?), who first came to notoriety with the series ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’. Now divorced from Jon, Kate has also appeared on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’.
The stars of Marvel comedy action flick 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' were warmly welcomed on their arrival at the New York premiere; among them were main star Chris Pratt and his co-stars Zoe Saldana and Vin Diesel, who play Peter Quill, Gamora and Groot respectively.
Television audiences flocked to watch the second instalment of ludicrous straight-to-TV series
The cross-conceptual gore-fest Sharknado 2: The Second One has become the Syfy channel’s most watched original movie ever.
The first Sharknado movie, screened on the same channel almost exactly one year ago, was something of a cult social media sensation, and the sequel has amplified that success many times over, pulling in 3.9 million viewers for its one-off showing on Wednesday night.

Sharknado 2 has fast become Twitter's favourite thing.
Today in “how is this even happening” news, Sharknado 2 made a killing with its ratings. Ha. Get it? A killing? Well, it’s making a moderate, relative to other SyFy original movies, killing. In related news, the subsequent Tweetnado broke records set by the likes of Kimye and Miley Cyrus.
The movie premiered on Wednesday night to the best ratings SyFy has seen. Ever. Sharknado 2: The Second One attracted 3.9 million total viewers and 1.6 million adults age 18-49, averaging 1.8 million adults age 25-54. That's nearly three times the ratings the original Sharknado movie earned.

File under: unnecessary sequels.
As unfortunate as the idea of Sharknado 2 sounds, it’s happening. Let that sink in for a second: someone wrote, filmed and edited a sequel to 2013’s lamest B-movie. Sharknado: The Second One was reportedly filmed in just 18 days for less than $2 million and premiers Wednesday. The “natural” disaster hits New York this time. The good news: someone at Asylum and/or SyFy obviously realized the only selling point of the original was its ridiculousness, so this time they’ve amped it up.
Sharknado 2: The Second One (the name really tells you everything you need to know) features chainsaws, Ian Ziering delivering inspiring speeches and sharks, sharks everywhere. The CGI team have really taken their job above and beyond, in quantity, if not quality. As Tara Reid put it in a recent interview with USA Today: "The sharks could go anywhere from inside hospitals to the Mets stadium to subways, to the street, to you name it, a shark could be there. The Empire State Building."

Sharknado 2: The Second One follows on from the cult success of the first in 2013
Science fiction movie fans are eagerly anticipating the second instalment in the cult Sharknado films. Sharknado 2: The Second One is due to debut on the Syfy channel on Wednesday July 30th.
Although it’s a classic straight-to-TV movie, the first Sharknado gained a sizeable cult following mainly fuelled through Twitter. The original starred Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, who played a pair of ex-lovers set against the backdrop of a Los Angeles infested with man-eating sharks, after a waterspout had lifted them out of the ocean and dumped them in the city.
