SYFY AND THE ASYLUM ANNOUNCE THE TITLE AND AIRDATE WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR:
"SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS" TO PREMIERE ON SYFY ON SUNDAY, JULY 31
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA - April 1, 2016 - Syfy and The Asylum today revealed that the official title of the next SHARKNADO movie is... SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS! The two hour original movie will premiere four months from now on a TV very, very nearby - on Syfy, Sunday, July 31 at 8PM ET/PT.
The fourth installment of the SHARKNADO franchise will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer's SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO!. Fin (Ian Ziering), his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks - and 'nados! - are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.
Tara Reid is also set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. David Hasselhoff (as Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise their SHARKNADO 3 roles. New additions to the SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS cast include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs (with more to be announced soon!).
SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.
