The sequel to the movie you didn’t know you wanted – Sharknado 2 – is officially going to happen folks.

Syfy announced the news today that a sequel is officially on the way to last summer’s surprise hit movie about a freak tornado that rains sharks on the unsuspecting.

Production will begin in New York in February. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reunite to reprise their roles as Fin and April and presumably to save New York in Sharknado 2: The Second One.

The plot (yes there is one) centers around a freak weather system which turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.

Sharknado 2 is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.

Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy said today “Sharknado was an extraordinary ‘perfect storm’ which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe. You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about Sharknado! By reassembling the creative team – and dropping sharks onto New York’s iconic sites – we’re unleashing yet another ‘fin’ wave of shark-mania.”

Sharknado 2 is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.
