ocean sky is about to get bloody again.
Yes, the sequel to the much-beloved "Sharknado" is coming to a TV screen near you. "Sharknado 2: The Second One" will air on Wednesday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Space.
This sequel centres on a freak weather system that turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a “sharknado” on the city’s population with Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) as the only ones able to save the city.
The Hollywood Reporter managed to get some exclusive casting information: Gossip blogger Perez Hilton will reportedly have a cameo in the film, which takes place in New York City. Joining him will be Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa’s Pepa (Sandra Denton), Robert Klein and professional wrestler Kurt Angle.
Little is known about the roles of these new additions, but THR learned Klein will be playing a former New York City mayor, and Angle will be the FDNY fire chief in this follow-up to the unexpectedly successful 2013 made-for-TV-movie in which a tornado lifts sharks out of the ocean and carries them over the city of Los Angeles.
The sequel was given the green light just weeks after the premiere of the original movie.
As Deadline previously reported, other cast members include Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander and Judd Hirsch.
"Avalanche Sharks" aired on Showcase on New Year's Day 2014, but was totally separate from the "Sharknado" franchise -- in title only.
