Syfy orders Sharknado 3 for 2015

Ian Ziering in the upcoming "Sharknado: The Second One"
Syfy is feeling very good about the upcoming Sharknado sequel.

The network has ordered Sharknado 3, before the second installment in the franchise even airs. The threequel will air in summer 2015.

The first Sharknado film turned Beverly Hills 90210 hunk Ian Ziering into a full-fledged chainsaw wielding action hero.  He returns in the sequel, along with Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Andy Dick and Mark McGrath.

The original Sharknado, which premiered on Syfy in 2013 about a freak "man-eating-shark-laced hurricane" hitting Los Angeles, was a pop culture phenomenon.  The Twitterverse practically exploded the night the film originally aired.  Subsequent re-airings gave way to even higher ratings.

Sharknado: The Second One, which was filmed in New York City, will premiere on July 30.
