Syfy Announces Sharknado 3 Release Date

Syfy says Sharknado will rain down on Washington on July 22.

Another summer another Sharknado. The tongue in cheek and jaws on flesh summer series is coming back to take a bite out of the eastern seaboard from Washington, DC, to Florida.

Syfy and The Asylum announced that the two-hour original movie Sharknado 3 will fall out of air on Wednesday, July 22 at 9 p.m.

The next installment will be called Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

“We wanted this third title to boldly go where no shark movie has gone before. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! embraces the larger-than-life irreverence that has made these movies so popular and entertaining,” said Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Program Strategy of Syfy, in a statement.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will be broadcast around the world within 24 hours of its U.S. debut. 86 countries, including the UK, Australia, Europe, Asia and Latin America will get shark fever.

“The sharks and tornadoes get all the glory, but we would like to thank our long-time marketing guru Mike DiGrazia who first suggested ‘Oh hell no!’  A dedicated fan of the genre, Mike created the tag lines for 1 and 2 – ‘Enough Said!’ and ‘Shark Happens’ – as well as the Sharknado posters, including the original, which was a viral sensation on its own,” said David Michael Latt, Producer at The Asylum in a statement.

According to the official release “Sharknado 3 will cause mass destruction in Washington, D.C. before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida, and stars Ian Ziering as Fin, Tara Reid as April and Cassie Scerbo as Nova. Joining them will be David Hasselhoff as Fin’s father, Gil; Bo Derek will play April’s mother, May; Ryan Newman will play April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia Shepard, and Jack Griffo will portray Claudia’s friend, Billy.”

There will also be cameos from Mark Cuban “as the President of the United States; Ann Coulter as the Vice President; Michele Bachmann as herself; Jerry Springer as Mr. White, a manic tourist; Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton as a reporter; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard, and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator,” according to the toothsome press.

Sharknado 2: The Second One became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever when it aired on July 30, 2014.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will be directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a script by Thunder Levin.
