Flying sharks invade New York City in the follow-up to Syfy’s trashy thriller, which garnered 5,000 tweets per minute during its July 11 premiere.
“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm — on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel,” said Syfy’s executive vice president of programming and original movies, Thomas Vitale, in a statement. “What we can guarantee is that ‘Sharknado 2’ will be lots of fun.”
Produced by The Asylum, “Sharknado 2” (working title) is slated to premiere in 2014.
Here are some promising suggestions from the Twittersphere:

The Syfy announcement is on the heels of the network’s trailer release for “Ghost Shark,” in which a dead shark seeks revenge on the entire human race.
The backstory: “When Ava’s father is brutally murdered, no one believes that the ghost shark got him — except the crazy lighthouse keeper Finch.”
If you doubted it could get any better than that, know that the leading role of Ava is played by an all-grown-up, bikini-clad Mackenzie Rosman, who starred as Ruthie Camden in “7th Heaven.”
“Ghost Shark” premieres August 22. Watch the awful trailer below:
