Dreams, or nightmares, do come true — a third installment of the Sharknado series is coming soon to an ocean near you.
Syfy confirmed to Mashable Wednesday that there will be a Sharknado 3, but have yet to release any further details on the film, including what city the sharks would be terrorizing. It’s slated to release in summer 2015.
The news comes as a surprise, considering the second Sharknado film, aptly titled “The Second One”, won’t even air until July 30. (The title was chosen by a Twitter contest.)
While the first film took place in Los Angeles, Sharknado 2 will be set in New York City and brings back original cast members Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, along with newbies Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath and Judah Friedlander. The films are produced by Asylum Entertainment.
The first movie took Twitter by storm, generating 5,000 tweets per minute at its peak. That means Sharknado 2 and 3 have big fins to fill.
