Fans of last years SyFy/The Asylum hit SHARKNADO (and we are legion!) are ready to rev up the chainsaws for SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, and today we've learned when the sequel will premiere as well as some of the cameos we can expect to see taking on the titular threat.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE will make its grand premiere on Thursday, July 31 at 9 p.m. PT/ET. The follow-up comes a little more than one year after the original movie aired.
Blogger Perez Hilton will make a cameo in SHARKNADO 2, along with Biz Markie and Salt-N-Pepa's Pepa (aka Sandra Denton).
Robert Klein and professional wrestler/Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle have also joined the TV movie, playing former New York City mayor and the FDNY fire chief, respectively.
Sharknado 2 centers on a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "sharknado" on the city's population and its most iconic sites, with Fin and April the only ones able to save the city.
Ian Ziering and Tara Reid reprise their roles as Fin and April, while new castmembers include Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath. Previously announced cameos include Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick and Judah Friedlander.
Anthony Ferrante will also return to direct the sequel from a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also penned the 2013 original telepic that made a splash on social media.
