Glory, glory! Today, SyFy announced that there will, indeed be a “Sharknado” sequel.
“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel … What we can guarantee is that ‘Sharknado 2′will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year,” said the EVP of SyFy programming.
As if that weren’t good enough news, SyFy is now accepting title suggestions for “Sharknado 2.” You can Tweet them to @SyfyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado.
Unrelated, but totally related, this page of a screenplay about Squid-Shark-Alligator hybrids (written by an eight-year-old at summer camp) was posted on Reddit last night. SyFy, I think we’ve got a winner here. “Sharknado 2: The Attack Of The Squarklligators.” Jeremy London could star in it. Guy needs a comeback performance.

Most networks want their own day for their upfront. But others don’t need to be queen for a full 24 hours—thus, Wednesday has become a catch-all day for presentations, which is strange because Friday appears to be wide open. Not only did CBS announce their fall television lineups this morning—TBS and TNT took their turns, too. And not to be left out in the cold, SyFy announced that they’ve picked up a new series, too. After the jump, the shows announced today that have me giddy to press the record button. Keep reading »
Tommy Lee wants to be your history teacher. No, like, for reals. Everyone’s favorite Motley Crüe drummer and Pamela Anderson sex tape co-star is developing a new reality series for SyFy called “Culture Shock with Tommy Lee.” The concept of the series is that Tommy will travel to an exotic locale to learn all about the rituals and traditions of a secret society. “This is the first show that I’ve been a part of that will blow our minds and reveal things that will explain almost all our questions,” Lee says. “I’m very excited to be partnering with Syfy on this show. It’s going to be an amazing experience for all involved.” I can already picture him tagging his name on Stonehenge. [EW] Keep reading »
You’re looking at the stars of SyFy’s new Saturday night original movie “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.” Sure, there was a time when Debbie Gibson and Tiffany were blasting out of your boom box tape deck, but now the ‘80s teen pop titans are going to be fightin’ she-beasts. Blood bath-eriffic! In the movie, Debbie play an animal rights activist who just can’t shake her love of snakes, but when she frees them from a pet store they wind up mutating. Tiffany will play a park ranger who does some pretty crazy stuff to save some endangered alligators, but her plan totally backfires and results in an epic battle. So, sadly the ladies won’t be the mutants — plastic surgery aside — but the old rivals will lock horns, which is still pretty sweet. They start shooting next month and the movie will hit the SyFy channel sometime next year. Something tells us, this might be the final blow that brings scrunchies back. Ahh!
