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, Fast & Furious 6 Premiere
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.
