Syfy has decided that his next TV movie, Sharknado 6, will be the final installment of the long-running B-Movie series. Few people really saw the great success of the Sharknado franchise. The objectively crazy premise of the first movie gained first attention on the internet, but Syfy had already made the films so crazy that they could not explode. However, thanks to smart marketing and a strong presence on social networks, Sharknado has become a small event for the basic cable to a small event that has been seen by nearly 1.4 million people.
From this surprise surprise developed a franchise, whose peak, in terms of audience and not necessarily quality, was Sharknado 2: The Second One of 2014, which received a qualifier of 1.6 in the demo of 18-49 and almost by almost 4 million people were seen. In comparison, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming achieved only a demo rating of 0.6 last year and was only seen by 1.9 million people. They are still good numbers for Syfy, but clearly a sign of a series in their performance in terms of popularity and relevance.
TV Line reports in this regard that Syfy will end the Sharknado series this summer with the sixth installment, which is currently called only Sharknado 6. As with the previous sequels, one should expect the film to add a cheeky subtitle some time before its premiere on television. The star of the series Ian Ziering will of course return as Finn.
Sharknado 6 will resume the end of Sharknado 5, where the excitement is rising as Finn walks alone in an earth devastated by Sharknadoes, apparently convicted of not seeing his family again. By the time Dolph Lundgren appears, he reveals himself to be an adult version of Finn’s son Gil and offers his father the opportunity to travel through time repairing things. Finn will have the job of preventing the first Sharknado from happening. He will rewrite the story to save his loved ones and the planet he calls home. One thing is certain, these films did not become more plausible in the further course.
In addition to Ian Ziering, the Sharknado veterans Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo and Vivica A. Fox are confirmed for the final sequel. Director Anthony C. Ferrante, director of all previous Sharknado films, will also return to the top of Sharknado 6. As usual, fans should expect many famous cameos. While the premise of the time travel of Sharknado 6 seems to be that the franchise is closed forever, the movie story is full of planned “final payments” that are not the end. If Sharknado 6 is closer to the number of Sharknado 2 than Sharknado 5, do not be surprised to see Sharknado 7 materialize sooner or later.
