The weather is getting warmer. The school year is winding down. That can mean only one thing… it’s time for another Sharknado!!! And Syfy will not disappoint, releasing the fourth installment in its laughably bad, but epically awesome series appropriately titled “The 4th Awakens.” Directed once again by Anthony C. Ferrante, the usual suspects return led by Ian Ziering as Fin Shepard. After Los Angeles, New York, and Orlando, where else would a Sharknado hit… well the desert of course… it’s viva Las Vegas for the CG sharks!
Check out the teaser for Sharknado: The 4th Awakens below.
In the 20-second teaser, we see that nothing has changed and that’s a good thing. Flying sharks invade casinos and eat cash-hungry gamblers, Elvis impersonators fight off sharks using the King’s patented kung-fu techniquesm and my personal favorite, the male strip club performer fending off an attack with a powerful groin thrust… yeah!
Also listed in the cast are Tara Reid (although her character’s fate was left to the viewers), David Hasselhoff returning as Fin’s father, and fellow Baywatch alums Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul. Putting in guest appearances this time will be the always frenetic Gary Busey, Stacey Dash, Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec.
The 4th Awakens premieres on SyFy Sunday July 31st at 8:00 pm EST.
Ian Ziering will slay again in Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens, reprising his role as shark-fighting hero Fin Shepard, while Tara Reid is set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. The fourth addition to the hit global franchise also sees the return of David Hasselhoff as Gil Shepard and Ryan Newman as Claudia Shepard. Additional roles will be played by Tommy Davidson, Cheryl Tiegs, Gary Busey, Cody Linley, Imani Hakim and Masiela Lusha.
Sharknado 4 will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in Sharknado 3. Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) that are completely unexpected…
