"Sharknado" invaded our homes and televisions last month in all its ridiculous glory, and since then, we've all been waiting with bated breath to find out details about the sequel.

SyFy announced on July 17 that the second iteration of the film will take place in New York, and now, we also know what that film will be called. Ready? It's "Sharknado 2: The Second One."

YES.

What's great about that title is that it clearly conveys that the producers plan to be just as absurd with the second version of the flying shark film as they were with the first, because that's the worst, cheekiest title ever. That can only be a good foreshadowing of what will come in the movie.
