Sharknado 6 Trailer, Release Date and Everything to Know

The Last Sharknado: It's About Time will, as the title implies, be the final entry in Syfy's small-screen spoof franchise.

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time is promising one final, abundantly absurd ride with the Syfy film franchise’s sharp-toothed twisters before they dissipate.

Sharknado has spent the last 5 years on Syfy giving cartilaginous ocean predators the kind of bad PR that might just rival (purely on a PR level,) what Steven Spielberg started in 1975 with Jaws. However, to the distress or glee of the public, the franchise – by its very title – is going out with an apocalyptic time-bending bang.

The Last Sharknado Trailer

Here’s the first teaser trailer for The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.

The sixth and final entry in Syfy’s schlocky series will reportedly center on time travel. Contextually, by the time of 2017’s Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, the eponymous apex predator-pulsating weather phenomenon absurdly evolved to a level that destroyed most of the world, sending main characters Fin (Ian Ziering), April (Tara Reid) and Nova (Cassandra Scerbo) around the world to combat the insatiable storms. They will be joined this time by the returning Sharknado 2 character, Skye (Vivica A. Fox). Consequently, Sharknado 6 will see the gang travelling back in time to stop the phenomenon from ever taking place.

The Last Sharknado Release Date

The Last Sharknado Details

The franchise’s director, Anthony Ferrante, will return behind the camera to close out the series, working off a script by Scotty Mullen (Z Nation, Sharknado 5).

The Sharknado made-for-TV franchise launched on Syfy in the summer of 2013 with the original entry, which, showcasing the typical over-the-top tropes of the cable channel’s budget-CGI monster movies, embraced its innately absurd premise. Moreover, armed with pop culture riffs and an array of B/C-list celebrity cameos, the series seemingly brandished a level of self-awareness that bordered on satire. The onscreen event reaped ratings and made for phenomenal fodder on social media, leading to sequels in 2014’s Sharknado 2: The Second One, 2015’s Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, 2016’s Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens and 2017’s Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.

Note: a previous version of this article misidentified Scotty Mullen as the writer of Sharknado 4, which was written by Thunder Levin.
