'Sharknado' sequel gets a title

In a press release from Syfy, the title for the 2014 anticipated Sharknado sequel is Sharknado 2: The Second One.

Landing with a stormy, bitey slap in July 2014, the decision was reached after "reviewing more than 5,000 Twitter submissions to its Name Sharknado 2 social media contest."

Said Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy: "Since Twitter played such a huge role in the success of the original movie, we wanted to use that platform to ask our fans to name Sharknado 2. This response is another reminder of how Sharknado has become a pop culture phenomenon. We want to thank all our viewers for their wonderful contributions to keeping up the shark-mentum."

According to the press release, Sharknado 2: The Second One, will again be produced by The Asylum and set in New York City.

Details remain to be revealed about the gripping plot of this follow-up.
