Following in the footsteps of Sharknado and Sharknado 2: The Second One, SyFy has officially unveiled the title and premiere date for the next installment in their completely ridiculous natural disaster franchise — Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
The film will premiere July 22 on the SyFy channel in the United States before airing across 86 countries within 24 hours of the U.S. premiere.
Returning for Sharknado 3 are franchise stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, who will also be joined this time around by David Hasselhoff and Bo Derek. As is Sharknado tradition, a number of celebrities will also make cameos throughout the film, including Mark Cuban as the President of the United States, Ann Coulter as the vice president, Michelle Bachmann as herself, Jerry Springer as a tourist and many more.
If you have yet to see Sharknado, this is what you're missing:
"We wanted this third title to boldly go where no shark movie has gone before," Chris Regina, Senior Vice President for SyFy's program strategy, says in a press release. "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! embraces the larger-than-life irreverence that has made these movies so popular and entertaining."
"Oh hell no!" is likely what millions of television viewers who have grown tired of the C-grade monster movies are saying right now upon hearing the news, but it is hard to deny Sharknado's success. The second film brought in more than 3.9 million viewers, the most for a SyFy original movie ever. It also proved to be a big hit on social media as viewers took to Twitter to laugh with (or at) the film as it aired. SyFy soon announced it would be making Sharknado a yearly event.
If this third entry in the franchise proves half as successful as the second, you can bet it will be raining great white sharks again in 2016. And 2017. And 2018. Best bring an umbrella.
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! debuts July 22.
