Drop what you’re doing, because we have some extremely exciting news! A title for the ‘Sharknado’ sequel has finally been revealed...and it’s a “doozie.”
Are you ready? The sequel will be called: ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One,’ Entertainment Weekly has exclusively revealed. Yes, that’s the name of the upcoming Syfy TV movie revolving around sharks and tornadoes.
Because of its success, Syfy reached out to fans for help in naming the sequel. The network asked fans to submit names via Twitter and more than 5,000 suggestions were submitted.
“Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name ‘Sharknado 2,’” Thomas Vitale, Syfy’s executive vice president of programming, said. “This response is another reminder of how ‘Sharknado’ has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum.”
When it first aired, ‘Sharknado,’ which starred Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, took the TV world by storm. Despite it’s airing last month, it seems people are still somewhat obsessed with the small screen movie. Boston, New York and Seattle recently provided midnight showings for fans -- and each one sold out!
This really is the little movie that could. Expect ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ to air sometime July 2014.
Are you excited for the sequel? What do you think of the name?
