Forget Superstorm Sandy. Sharknado is coming to the Big Apple.

Syfy has officially given the green light to the rumored sequel to last week’s Twitter-tastic nonsense starring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, who will be back for Round 2.

This time, the fish frenzy will descend upon New York City.

“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. Fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel,” Syfy EVP Thomas Vitale said.

“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 fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year.”

As for the title to the 2014 follow-up, Syfy is opening it up to fans, asking for subtitle suggestion Tweets to @SyfyMovies, using the #Sharknado hashtag.

We’ve come up with some good options already. Vote!
