Syfy stumbled into a monster hit with Sharknado, a joke of a thriller created by The Asylumn — a company best known for their mockbuster direct-to-video b-movies starring c-level stars. The ridiculous concept of Sharknado took the twittosphere by storm (pun intended) and has, like it or not, now become a modern cult classic. A sequel was quickly announced, and Sharknado 2: The Second One is set to air on Syfy on Wednesday, July 30 at 9/8c. But it doesn’t stop there, The Asylum and Syfy want to make it a trilogy, today announcing that Sharknado 3 will be released in Summer 2015. No word on a title or if “stars” Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will return.
The first film destroyed Los Angeles and the sequel is set in New York City, but we don’t know which city will be destroyed in the third installment. We only know that the story will be set in a new city. One would assume that the movie needs to be set in a big city near a ocean. Possible options include Atlantic City, Miami, Palm Beach, Honolulu, Orlando and many others. New Orleans might be in very bad taste. Its also possible the series could go international with the third film. Read the full press release after the jump, and let the speculation begin.

There’s some plot, I suppose, as suggested by this synopsis: “Super tornadoes suck sharks up from the ocean floor, hurling them at LA.” A tornado in LA? That’s just crazy.
But who cares about the story? There’s a tornado full of sharks. As the poster says, enough said. Now there’s a trailer, which you can see below.
