SyFy Approves "Sharknado" Sequel. What's Next?

The forecast for 2014 is looking rather toothy, after the news broke out that the SyFy channel has greenlit another Sharknado. Yes, apparently the first one was such a monster (ha!) hit, that the good people of SyFy see enough potential for a sequel. We see how that could be, after all, the story of a tornado, raining sharks down on earth is a complex, nuanced one that clearly needs more than one movie to be told, preferably a trilogy.

Apparently, in the company’s eyes, Sharknado is literally so bad it’s good. While the questionable project doesn’t even have a script yet, the good people over at SyFy were apparently so impressed with the social media tornado that the first one stirred up, that they immediately started gearing up for a second one.

Tara Reid is on board for the sequel... who wouldn't be?


TMZ posted the following statement from a rep for the channel: "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 ns to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year."

Like it or not, Sharknado is now officially a franchise. In light of this news, maybe the brains behind the film might like to consider some potential spinoff ideas? We personally think Furricane – in which a hurricane blows scores of bears into [insert major US city] might be a great one to consider.

Damon Lindelof, Prometheus Premiere
Unfortunately, writer Damon Lindelof isn't likely to return.
