It was back in 2013 that we got the release of the Syfy original movie Sharknado and, while there was quite a lot of mocking going on before the film aired, it actually turned out to be a very successful project for Syfy, leading them to go ahead and make Sharknado 2: The Second One, which went on to become even bigger and more successful than the first movie.
Sharknado 2: The Second One was aired in July 2014 and went on to become the biggest original movie in Syfy history, going on to land 3.9million viewers, so it was no surprise when we heard that we could get a third instalment of the franchise. That has now been confirmed, as it looks like we could get to see Sharknado 3 airing on Syfy sometime in 2015, with the movie expected to air in July.
Along with the movie being confirmed, it has also been announced that Sharknado 3 will see the return of Tara Reid, in her role as April Wexler, as well as Ian Ziering, in his role as Fin Shepard. Meanwhile, Anthony C. Ferrante is back again to direct the movie, while Thunder Levin will once again write the script for the project. Sharknado 3 will see the sharks hitting the capital, Washington D.C., before then going on to attack Orlando, Florida.
It seems that the Sharknado franchise really has developed quite the cult following and we would not be surprised to see Sharknado 3 going on to break the viewing records that Sharknado 2: The Second One set for Syfy. We will bring you more news about Sharknado 3 as we get it.
Are you looking forward to seeing Tara Reid and Ian Ziering in Sharknado 3?
