‘Sharknado’ Franchise To End With Time-Traveling Sixth Installment
It looks the sharp-toothed winds of Sharknado are about to come to an end. Syfy announced that they greenlit a sixth and final installment of the campy sci-fi horror franchise, Deadline has confirmed.
The yet-to-be-titled sequel will bring back Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, and Vivica A. Fox. Five-time Sharknado helmer Anthony C. Ferrante will be back in the director’s chair for the grand finale.
In Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, we last saw Finn (Ziering) walking the Earth all by his lonesome after it has been destroyed. The sixth movie will have him traveling back in time to stop the first Sharknado that ushered in this cult franchise.
The Sharknado movement started in 2013 and has since garnered a rabid cult fanbase on social media that ate up all of the franchise’s B-movie glory. The first movie was followed by Sharknado 2: The Second One, which was a series-best reeling in 3.9 million viewers. This was followed by more installments with enjoyably absurd and obvious titles: Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! and Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.
