Sharknado fans rejoice!

The stars of the original film, Ian Ziering and Tara Reid have officially signed on to recreate their roles in the sequel to Syfy’s Sharknado 2: The Second One.

Fin (Ziering) and April (Reid) will take on a deadly Sharknado as it descends upon the people and iconic locations of New York City. Look for some very “spectacular” special effects and a tad of overacting in the disaster flick.

Sharknado was an extraordinary ‘perfect storm’ which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe,” Thomas Vitale, executive vice president of programming and original movies at Syfy, says in a statement. “You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about ‘Sharknado’! By reassembling the creative team — and dropping sharks onto New York’s iconic sites — we’re unleashing yet another ‘fin’ wave of shark-mania.”

Sharknado 2 begins filming in New York on Feb. 13, with a scheduled premiere on Syfy in July.
