From Syfy and The Asylum comes the announcement of the fifth installment of the ever popular “Sharknado” franchise. Actors Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will once again reprise their roles as the shark-fighting couple fin Shepard and April Wexler. In addition, original cast member Cassie Scerbo will also return as the character Nova; a bartender turned Sharknado fighter.

A brief history of 'Sharknado'

Spawning from the success of “Sharknado” in 2013, the original film introduces the cyclone containing the deadly man-eating sharks as they are unleashed onto the citizens of Los Angeles, and the series soon continued to take off with the dubbed Sharknado terrorizing other cities.

Due to its’ popularity, “Sharknado” had become a worldwide phenomenon and several more movies were created in its likeness.

In the second film, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” the sharks terrorized New York City and in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!,” the mega Sharknado traveled along the coast from Washington D.C. to Florida. Just last year, “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” was released and this time, the sharks ripped the rest of North America to pieces, leaving it lying in ruins and anticipating a global attack.

Sharknado lives on

Now in “Sharknado 5” (working title), the world sees an increase of shark cyclones in different cities internationally and Fin Shephard and his family must stop these shark-related attacks before the rest of the world is wiped out—for good. To correspond with that, this installment will be filmed in more than five countries, including the U.K. and Australia. In addition, principal photography for the work has already started in Bulgaria.

At this point, it is unknown if there will be any surprising cameos in “Sharknado 5” or even if this is the last of the global franchise. However, Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed the previous four films, will also be directing this latest film, so we know it will be just as wacky as the previous installments. “Zoombies” screenwriter Scotty Mullen also wrote the script. Let’s see what will happen with Sharknado this time.
