Which city will be attacked by flying sharks next? New York City! Following the spectacular worldwide social media frenzy around the July 11 premiere of Sharknado, Syfy today announced it will produce - Sharknado 2!

Sharknado 2 (working title), which will again be produced by The Asylum, is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in 2014.

Syfy also announced a special Twitter contest to help name the movie with an appropriate subtitle. Fans will be able to tweet their subtitle to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado. Syfy will select the best submission as the subtitle for Sharknado 2.

In making the announcement, Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy, had this to say.

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


In Sharknado, regulars of a beachside bar including owner Fin (Ian Ziering/Beverly Hills, 90210), bartender Nova (Cassie Scerbo/Make It or Break It) and local drunk George (John Heard/Home Alone) team up with Fin's ex-wife April (Tara Reid/Scrubs) to investigate the ecological nightmare that has sharks swimming through the streets of Los Angeles and falling from the skies.

    @thedude1 it got a little more than 300,000 mentions on twitter. For a little perspective the super bowl got around 24 million and Teen Wolf season 3 opener got 1 million twitter mentions in June.

    It doesn't seem that significant but I guess everyone who was tweeting was realllly in to it.

    @skywise Yeah it was the top trending item on Twitter while it was airing. While it didn't have many live viewers I'm sure it will have a good total of viewers for the re-airing tomorrow night not to mention the views from on demand and later with its DVD/Blu Ray release.

    I love these cheesy movies. I haven't seen Sharknado yet but I'll try and watch it sometime this week.

    the movie was viewed by about 1 million people which is about average for the goofy creature syfy movies. I am not sure what fans they are talking about that were clamoring for a sequel. I do know that it was like the number one trending on Twitter that night.

    It seems that everyone was talking but nobody was watching. I guess that's all you need.
