'Sharknado 3' to Strike Syfy in July

Batten down the hatches, because there's another Sharknado coming.

Syfy and The Asylum announced today that franchise stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will return for Sharknado 3, which will rain down killer fish on Washington, D.C., and the Eastern Seaboard in July. Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct from a script by Thunder Levin.

A disaster movie that's proudly mindless and purposely "bad," Sharknado debuted on the cable channel in July 2013 to below-average ratings. However, social-media response led viewership to increase over repeat airings.

The star-studded sequel, Sharknado: 2: The Second One, premiered in July 2014, becoming the most-watched Syfy Original Movie ever, with 3.9 million viewers.
