This is it, everyone. Sharknado 3 has been officially announced as coming to our screens in July of 2015, making it three years in a row. We're going to run out of coastal cities before they run out of films. I look forward to the explanation of how sharks get to Chicago.


Sharknado 2 was a hit for Syfy last week, as "Sharknado Week," July 28-August 3, hit 80 percent of adults between the ages of 18-49 and 73 percent among total viewers. They aired Sharknado 1 and 2 eight times that week, pulling in 18.2 million viewers total. July 30th's premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One broke records with 3.9 million. We have only ourselves to blame for this.

Given that Sharknado 2: The Second One was named using Twitter, we'll see if they go that route again. Or if they stick with a known quantity and go with Sharknado 3: The Third One. I'm more interested in which city will be struck by a tornado of sharks this time. San Francisco? Seattle? Boston? Ooooh, let's destroy the capital this time. Like it even sort of matters that getting a hurricane of sharks to Washington D.C. is ridiculous. We've embraced Sharknado to our bosoms, let's just Independence Day the shit out of the concept.
