Sharknado 2 has official devoured the original Sharknado.
According to a Syfy press release, the ridiculous(ly awesome) film was viewed by 3.9 million people last night, good enough for a 180% increase over the first version.
Along with becoming the channel’s most-watched original movie, Sharknado 2 delivered one BILLION estimated impressions on Twitter.
Syfy will unleash Sharknado 2 in encore airings on Saturday, August 2 at 7PM and Sunday, August 3 at 9PM (ET/PT).
The movie brings back Ian Ziering and Tara Reid and also features such special guest stars as Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer and Judah Friedlander.
Those with cameos include Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Also, in case you were wondering: yes, Sharknado 3 is already in the works. Heck, we expect Sharknado 4 to be announced any hour now.
